I had a feeling I'd run into you
It had to happen I just hoped not this soon
All I wanted was to speak your name
And maybe not start breakin down again
I hoped you'd see me with somebody new
And think that I was fine
But now it ain't no use there's nothing
left to hide

You said I'd get over it
You said it only takes time
That soon I'd be on mt feet again
And over my cryin'
I fought every memory
I conquered a few
But what I can't get over is getting over
losing you

So much for being strong and nonchalant
But you're the only girl I ever wanted
And if I ever tried to slow you down
I was only tryin' to keep you safe and sound
Someday you'll want someone to stand by you
And never let you down
When that day comes darlin'
You'll know the hurt I've found

You said I'd get over it
You said it only takes time
That soon I'd be on my feet again
And over my cryin'
I fought every memory
I conquered a few
But what I can't get over is getting over
losing you

Don't turn away
Darling I pray stay with me now
Stay with me now
Don't throw away
Something we've paid so dearly for

You said I'd get over it
You said it only takes time
That soon I'd be on my feet again
And over my cryin'
I fought every memory
I conquered a few
But what I can't get over is getting over
losing you
