Getting Over You
Willie Nelson;Bonnie Raitt Lyrics


Why do I still write why do I still call
Why do I still think there's hope for us at all
These are the tings I hate but they're the things I do to get over you
Sunsets make me cry old pictures make me grin
But I don't really care to see your face again
These are the things I say but they're so hard to do like gettin' over you
You gotta believe that there's a reason that we surrender up our hearts
But there's a vantage point and it takes some time to find
Where you can see how all the pieces fit as you watch 'em fall apart
Now I don't think it's right and you don't know what's wrong
My heart keeps asking me just where do we belong
It's not as though my life ain't hard enough to do try gettin' over you

You gotta believe that there's a reason...

Now other people say stop living in the past
But when there's nothin' left it's your memory that lasts
It's later than you think but still this isn't through this gettin' over you
Now it's later than you think and still this isn't through this gettin' over you

"Why do I still write

Why do I still think
There's hope for us at all
These are the tings I hate
But they're the things I do
To get over you

Sunsets make me cry
Old pictures make me grin
But I don't really care
To see your face again
These are the things I say
But they're so hard to do
Like getting over you

You gotta believe that there's a reason
That we surrender up our hearts
But there's a vantage point
And it takes some time to find
Where you can see how all the pieces fit
As you watch 'em fall apart

Now I don't think it's right
And you don't know what's wrong
My heart keeps asking me
Just where do we belong
It's not as though my life
Ain't hard enough to do
Try getting over you

You gotta believe that there's a reason
That we surrender up our hearts
But there's a vantage point
And it takes some time to find
Where you can see how all the pieces fit
As you watch 'em fall apart

And other people say
Stop living in the past
But when there's nothing left
It's your memory that lasts
It's later than you think
But still this isn't through
This getting over you

Now it's later than you think
And still this isn't through
This getting over you"

The song is about the eternal hope that true love can never fall apart, people remain connected at the level of the soul...always, if their feelings are genuine.

Curtis Squires

Willie and Bonnie Raitt ,.....it don't get much better than this ...

vandal nonesuch

Bonnie's slide playing: always superb, and the pedal steel in the background fills the gaps just right. What a terrific song!

Gary Hoffman

One of my favorite albums. Two greats on one song. So many great songs on a compilation.

John Hathaway

My God! I must be in the place--just ended a long relationship a couple months ago--can't stop playing this song!! Bonnie's voice tears through my soul! Love most of this album, but this song--damn!
