The Smiths: I Know It's Over Meaning
I Know It's Over Lyrics
And as I climb into an empty bed
Oh well. Enough said.
I know it's over - still I cling
I don't know where else I can go
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head

I've always interpreted the song as a ballad of loneliness. "Still I cling, I don't know where else I can go" Someone who's been hurt, who now feels lost without their person. She's asking him "Why are you on your own tonight?" He's recovering from heartbreak because love is natural and real, just not for the him and one he wanted.

its so easy to laugh its so easy to hate it take strength to be gentle and kind. "OH mother I can feel the soil falling over my head." I think it is the best song ever. The smiths made me feel like I'm not alone in this world.
