I saw an old friend of ours today.
She asked about you, I didn't quite know what to say.
Heard you've been making the rounds 'round here
While I've been trying to make tears disapear.

Chorus:
Now I'm almost over you.
I've almost shook these blues.
So when you come back around
After painting the town,
You'll see I'm almost over you.

You're such a sly one with a cold cold heart.
Maybe leavin' came easy, but it tore me apart.
Time heals all wounds they say and I should know.
Cuz it seems like forever,
But I'm letting you go.

[Chorus:]

I can forgive you and soon I'll forget all my shattered dreams.
Although you left me with nothing to show
But all misery.

[Chorus:]

When you come back around, after painting the town,
You'll see I'm almost over you.

    For me almost over you. Is a message for someone an "old dear special friend" who broke your heart into pieces, who gaves too much pain after you have loved him with all your life and suddenly left you all alone. And all you want to so is to forget that person, might be not that easy but you have to bec his not worth it. Let go. And go on.

    I know that it is very difficult to let go of the past specially when the person involved played a very big role in your life. It is true that only time can heal the wounds. As a matter of fact, it takes a lot of time to accept that everything between you is already over. Remember the line of Joe de Mango that goes this way: "don't force yourself to forget someone you truly love. it is not his presence that makes it difficult but, it is your stubbornness to accept that a line next to forgetting is impossible.. LIFE should not end where heartaches begin..."
