I Should Be Over You
12/16/2002

There was a time,
Back when we were still together.
When I thought I was blessed.
To have someone like you.

But then you left.
I guess it's the same old story.
Was it something I said dear?
Why'd you leave me behind?

You said yourself,
That you needed more space to grow.
This old town is too dull,
The city calls your name.

What could I do?
You said you're going there alone.
So I doubt you'll return.
I'm just lonely again.

But that was ten years ago,
I should be over it by now.
But sometimes it's hard you know?
I should forget it all but how?

Memory just doesn't fade,
The way I want it to, but why?
Imagine the times I'd trade,
Because those times still make me cry.

So here I sit,
Dwelling on the past like a fool.
Eating alone at home.
Can't I get over you?

So I should try,
To find someone to take your place.
I mean it's rather sad,
To wait here for your call.

It's just as well.
I know you've changed so much since then,
That even if I could,
There'd be no point at all.

Not like it helps,
Even though I know it won't work.
That doesn't mean that I,
Still don't wish that it could.

But that was ten years ago,
I should be over it by now.
But sometimes it's hard you know?
I should forget it all but how?

Memory just doesn't fade,
The way I want it to, but why?
Imagine the times I'd trade,
Because those times still make me cry.

I found a girl.
She doesn't act like you at all.
She's always nice to me,
She's just like an angel.

I'm happy now.
This woman means so much to me.
So then why do I still,
Sometimes think about you.

It's strange I know.
She's better than you ever were.
Still your phantom won't leave.
I really wish it would.

I'm over you,
At least that's what I tell myself.
I doubt I ever will,
But that's just part of life.

But that was ten years ago,
I should be over it by now.
But sometimes it's hard you know?
I should forget it all but how?

Memory just doesn't fade,
The way I want it to, but why?
Imagine the times I'd trade,
Because those times still make me cry.
