(coverdale/page)

You said you'd give me love,
Instead you caused me pain
You made me curse an' slam the door,
An' hang my head in shame
But, it's over now, it's over now

You talked to me of virtue,
An' sang a song so sweet
But, all I know is I could smell the perfume of deceit
An' it's over now, it's over now

You told me of your innocence,
An' I believed it all
But, your best friend is your vanity,
An' the mirror on the wall
It's over now...

I turned away from what I heard,
An' everything I saw
But, now I see the light of day,
I release the dog of war

So whatcha gonna do when the truth pays you a call,
How you gonna feel, when you finally lose it all,
How you gonna look, standing up against the wall,
Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna say, when you feel the hammer fall,
I'm gonna see you crawl

You took your pills an' washed them down,
An' then you talked for hours
I tried to build a garden,
But, you trampled all the flowers
An' it's over now

Wanting this, needing that,
Always after more
Now that it's all over,
I release the dog of war,
I release the dog of war

So whatcha gonna do when the truth pays you a call,
How you gonna look, standing up against the wall,
Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna say,
When you feel the hammer fall

Whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna say, standing up against the wall,
So whatcha gonna do, whatcha gonna say, mamma, when you feel the hammer fall,
So whatcha gonna do?
