Don't Wanna Get Over You

Lyrics by Scotty Newlands Music by Scotty Newlands/Greg Kavanagh © Scotty Newlands (SOCAN)/Greg Kavanagh (SOCAN) Produced by: Greg Kavanagh Recorded at: KavaSound - Toronto, Ont.

Verse 1:
The day you said goodbye, was the hardest day of all.
When you said that it was over - the rest I can't recall.
It didn't mean that much to me when you spoke your words so true,
The sound you made bounced off my face but it never followed through.
And now I'm left with emptiness and a hole inside my heart,
I need to clear my mind of you - but I just don't wanna start...

Chorus:
I don't wanna get over you,
I don't wanna have to say we're through.
I don't wanna end this loverís fight,
I don't wanna turn out your light.†
I don't wanna have to say goodbye,
Tears are fallin' and I don't know why.
Although - I know our time is through,
I don't wanna get over you.

Verse 2:
We had our troubles and we had our fun,
All those arguments when no one won.
You mad at me and me mad at you,
Endless nights Ė is our love through?
But more than that - we shared one life,
I thought one day you would be - my wife.
Though the vision seems lost from sight,
I want to tell you but the time wasn't right...
I'm trapped in loneliness and drowning in my shame,
I'm trying to put the wrap on you, but I'm the one to blame.

Chorus:
I don't wanna get over you,
I don't wanna have to say we're through.
I don't wanna end this loverís fight,
I don't wanna turn out your light.†
I don't wanna have to say goodbye,
Tears are fallin' and I don't know why.
Although - I know our time is through,
I don't wanna get over you.

Bridge:
Oh, now you're gone beyond my reach,
Memories still hurt so deep.
Thoughts of happiness and better times,
When I was yours are you were mine.†
But now the clock just ticks away,
Sends us both to another day.
And the vacancy I feel inside,
Swallows me and I just can't hide...

Chorus:
I don't wanna get over you,
I don't wanna have to say we're through,
I don't wanna end this loverís fight,
I don't wanna turn out your light.
I don't wanna have to say goodbye,
Tears are fallin' and I don't know why.
Although - I know our time is through,
I don't wanna get over you.

Outro Chorus:
I don't wanna get over you,
I don't wanna have to say we're through,
I don't wanna end this loverís fight,
I don't wanna turn out your light.
