I Don't Want to Get Over You
The Magnetic Fields Lyrics


I don't want to get over you
I guess I could take a sleeping pill
And sleep at will
And not have to go through what I go through
I guess I should take Prozac, right
And just smile all night
At somebody new
Somebody not too bright
But sweet and kind
Who would try to get you off my mind
I could leave this agony behind
Which is just what I'd do
If I wanted to
But I don't want to get over you

'Cause I don't want to get over love
I could listen to my therapist
Pretend you don't exist
And not have to dream of what I dream of
I could listen to all my friends
And go out again
And pretend it's enough
Or I could make a career of being blue
I could dress in black and read Camus
Smoke clove cigarettes and drink vermouth
Like I was seventeen
That would be a scream
But I don't want to get over you

I don't want to get over you
I guess I could take a sleeping pill
And sleep at will
And not have to go through
What I go through
I guess I should take Prozac, right?
And just smile all night
At somebody new
Somebody not too bright
But sweet and kind
Who would try to get you off my mind
I could leave this agony behind
Which is just what I'd do
If I wanted to
But I don't want to get over you

'Cause I don't want to get over love
I could listen to my therapist
Pretend you don't exist 
And not have to dream of
What I dream of
I could listen to all my friends
And go out again
And pretend it's enough
Or I could make a career of being blue
I could dress in black and read Camus
Smoke clove cigarettes and drink vermouth
Like I was seventeen
That would be a scream
But I don't want to get over you

Reading Camus and remembering this fondly...

There exists (in my experience) a unity with people who have experienced a break. Doesn't matter the length the time you were together so long as you saw them as an extension of yourself so long as you were fused with this... Than you know the pain. All I have to say about this is don't try to cover the emotions. Don't try to numb and run from them. Feel them. Walk face first into them. And ask for help when you need it. From personal experience I know what it's like and I can also say and totally assure you it gets better but it takes time. And once you start to see the light you'll realize that what was once poision emotions and pain becomes sweet sweet growth and medicine and then you become the type of person who can help others pass easier to the other side of their darkness. You can help guide others through their pain. I have made so many connections this way and it is amazing. Sure I sometimes notice a twinge of pain here and there... But it is so so small now. This is the natural process of losing a piece of ones self and then healing... Just take things slowly. Much love
