All Over You

(Becka Brown)
Becka Brown
written about the same boy in Race For You, but here the race has ended, the prizes have all been handed out, and the consolation prize I walk away with is a little more wisdom that I had before.
all over you

I've poured the wine - it's rare and so dear
prized by the wise and a very good year
come celebrate its offering - now pouring ---All gone
Just like a sweet rain, refreshing to all,
nurturing each thing upon which it falls
I may have been a day in spring -- but here comes the sun

And I have poured myself out all over you
All over you - You, you drank it all in
but this will never be what I want it to
I know that's true, my friend

This heart is no trivial thing - and must not
grow empty in love all alone - I don't regret
the offering - but that day is done

And I have poured myself out all over you
oh, you know you made it easy to pretend
that I would one day be all you wanted, too
You know that's true

And I have poured myself out all over you
All over you - You, you drank it all in
but this will never be what I want it to
I know that's true, my friend -- I know that’s true,
and I have poured myself out
now pouring, now pouring - all gone
now pouring,now pouring,now pouring, all gone
