Sara Bareilles – Gonna Get Over You lyrics

Goodbye
Should be sayin' that to you by now, shouldn't I?
Layin' down the law the I live by
Maybe next time

I've got a thick tongue,
Brimming with the words that go unsung
Simmer then the burn for someone,
The wrong one

I tell myself to let the story end,
My heart will rest in someone else's hand
My 'why not me? ' philosophy began,
And I say
[Chorus:]
Ooh, how'm I gonna get over you?
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday, heyyyy I wish you'd want me to stay
I'll be alright, just not tonight,
Someday

Maybe is a vicious little word that can slay me
Keep me when I'm hurting you make me,
Hang from your hands

No more,
I won't beg to buy a shot at your back door
If I acing it at the thought of you, what for?
That's not me anymore

I'm not the girl that I intend to be,
Oh darling, just you wait and see
But this time not for you but just for me,
And I say
[Chorus:]
Ooh, how'm I gonna get over you?
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday, heyyyy I wish you'd want me to stay
I'll be alright, just not tonight,

Someday, say it's coming soon
Someday, without you
All I can do
Is to get over pass the ghost of you
Wave goodbye to me
Won't say I'm sorry
I'll be alright
Once I find the other side of someday

Ooh, how'm I gonna get over you?
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday, heyyy I wish you'd want me to stay
I'll be alright, just not tonight,
Someday

    I think this song talks about how hard it is to get over you like but at the same time you know isn't the right for you. I mean it talks about how you know you have to get over someone who hurted you but you keep thinking that something could happen and everything would be alright. And you know that someday you'll be over it but the question is how? And how much time is it gonna take?
