Gonna Get Over You
Sara Bareilles Lyrics


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

I've got a thick tongue
Brimming with the words that go unsung
I simmer, then I burn for someone
The wrong one
I tell myself to let the story end, oh
My heart will rest in someone else's hand
My why-not-me philosophy began
And I say

Oh, how am I gonna get over you?
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday, hey oh, I wish you'd want me to stay
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday

"Maybe" it's a vicious little word that can slay me
Keep me when I'm hurting and make me
Hang from your hands

Well, no more (no more)
I won't beg to buy a shot at your back door
If I make it at the thought of you, what for? (what for?)
It's not me anymore

And I'm not the girl that I intend to be
I dare you, darling, just you wait and see
But this time not for you but just for me
And I say

Oh, how am I gonna get over you?
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday, hey oh, I wish you'd want me to stay
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday

Say it's comin' soon,
Someday without you
All I can do, is get me past the ghost of you
Wave goodbye to me
I won't say I'm sorry
I'll be alright, once I find the other side of
Someday
Oh, oh
Whoa, oh
Oh
Oh, oh
Whoa, oh
Whoa, oh
Whoa, oh

Oh, how am I gonna get over you?
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday, hey oh, I wish you'd want me to stay
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday

As a 67 year old boomer, I've been more of a Beatles and Stones type of guy. Then the 2020 pandemic hit. I was stuck in the house, binging on new music videos and found this gem. Amazing talent. I'm an instant fan.

Joshua Solomon

wow sara fans are such nice people I've gathered after reading this comments
there's still hope for this world

@ramblin rose It sounds like you are saying the video is a fail, not the song. I think the song is great and her voice is always amazing.

I think the director of this video should have gone with a different approach for the video. Maybe a 1950's sock hop?

Thank God I am not the only man that loves her music, I wish some of her music had been around 18 years ago when me and my ex-wife were having problems, she divorced me and things have not been the same sence then, every woman I get to know wants to put me in the friends only box

I'm a boomer and a musician too, and Sara is the absolute unequivocal truth!!!

Gary Smith

Switching my listening from old (tied) favorites to new music has brought new excitement to my life.
