I'll get over you

Posted on Sun, Jul 11, 2010 at 4:17 PM

When the salt from my tears
Burn my eyes
For the very last time.

When all the memories
Make me smile
Instead of cry.

When I forget your birthday
Your phone number
The name of our unborn son,

When I kiss another one-
I'll get over you.

When I wake up with a smile on my face
And realize I’m going to be fine
Instead of lying here wondering why.

You can’t make me happy.

I realize that I never could be what you need.

When I see you with her
and your waking down the street.

And your happy
which makes me happy.

I'll get over you.

But right now

My senses are lost My body is restless

My soul searches for the hidden truth

It breaks my heart all over again
Cause the voice inside is screaming
I'll never get over you

..It's been three years to the day... I will get over you. —Everything that glitters isn't gold
