Brandi Carlile – Over You lyrics

I heard the news today I guess that's what I thought you'd say
I guess you thought I'd care but guess what I don't so you can go to hell
I wore your shirt to bed again but that was way back when
And I don't want to touch you like I did as stupid as I've been

I'm overjoyed, I'm overwhelmed
Please understand
I am over you

I used to need you in my bones I used to need you in my bed
I used to need you just to breathe but I think that was in my head
I used to call you on the phone hoping you were all alone
So you might put me in your car but just look at how i've grown

I'm overjoyed, I'm overwhelmed
Please understand
I am over you

But if you bat your eyes and whisper pretty please
I might go there again cause you were always such a tease
But I don't need you and I don't want you here tonight
I just wanna know that I will wake up confident my head is screwed on tight

I'm overjoyed, I'm overwhelmed
Please understand
I am over you
