Already Over by RED
There are two different parts to this song; keep in mind that the second one basically has the same lyrics...but there's a story behind it...I'm giving a quote from the actual band, so you won't be confused while watching the videos.
"We did two different versions of "Already Over." The first version is full production and it's basically talking about addictions. The person knows that these addictions are affecting their life, but they just keep running to it. Deep down inside they know it's going to destroy them but it's an addiction controlling them. Tragically they "offer up their soul." The second version, "Already Over, Pt. 2," talks about running to something different. This time they are running to the answer, which is God, and finally allowing Jesus' power to overcome temptation. The moment we finally "offer up our souls" to Jesus, it's "already over," the darkness fades, we are forgiven of our sins, and we can rest in His peace. When you listen to the first version and then you listen to the second version, you see the redemption that takes place between the two songs."
Already Over: (edit to add: honestly, in this first video, I see the girl in the other room representing God, the man is trying to get to her, but, the darkness is dragging him down...and then he arises from the darkness. )
Already Over, Pt. 2 (Part two doesn't have an actual music video)
Hope you enjoyed!
