Lyrics

Getting Over You

Friends who turned lovers went back to being friends

But nothing’s ever over because nothing ever ends

I thought that it’d be easier with calmness to be found

But I fight the urge to kiss him when there’s no one else around

We spin circles in silence and fall flat on the floor

But the stench of desperation is much harder to ignore

So we will both will mind our manners and get through another day

But I struggle still to find a better way of

Getting over you

Getting over your auburn eyes

I want so much to linger

But you’re not one for long goodbyes

Letting go of a dream

The sweet and gentle reverie

Finding the strength to love you

As you slowly walk away

If my heart’s just an organ, then tell me, why does it ache

When I think on all that’s come to pass and all of our mistakes

If these tears don’t serve a purpose, why do they flow from me like rain

When I know that they can’t wash away the pain of

Getting over you

Getting over your auburn eyes

I want so much to linger

But you’re not one for long goodbyes

Letting go of a dream

The sweet and gentle reverie

Finding the strength to love you

As you slowly walk away

And even though you’re incomparable

You’re still emotionally unavailable

And I’m not unassailable

And so it’s time to walk away

It’s just so hard for me…


Getting over you

Getting over your auburn eyes

I want so much to linger

But you’re not one for long goodbyes

Letting go of a dream

The sweet and gentle reverie

Finding the strength to love you

And then slowly walk away
