Alicia Keys – Until I Get Over You lyrics

Woke up today thinking of you
another night that I made my way through
so many dreams still left in my mind
but they can never come true
I press rewind and remember when
I close my eyes and I'm with you again
but in the end I can still feel the pain - every
time I hear your name

the sun won't shine since you went away
seems like the rains falling every day
there's just one heart, where there once
was two
but that's the way it's gotta be,
'til I get over you....

Walked through the park, in the evening air
I heard a voice and I thought you were there
I run away but I just can't escape
memories of you everywhere
they say that time will dry the tears
but true love burns for a thousand years
give my tomorrows for one yesterday
just to know I could have you here


When will this river of tears stop fallin'
where can I run so I won't feel alone
can't walk away when the pain keeps calling
I just gotta take it from here on my own
but it's so hard to let go


That's the way it's gotta be until I get over you

'til I get over you

    I have this song in my playlist since my love left me. I miss him so much and everytime I listen to this song and sing, I ended up crying. Coz the memories of him and the love that we shared make me cry everytime. I'm still holding on and I'm still keeping him in my heart although he doesn't love me anymore. It is so hard to get over and only time can heal my heart.
