Bareilles, Sara - Gonna Get Over You Lyrics




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

I've got a thick tongue
Brimming with the words that go unsung
I simmer then I burn for a someone
The wrong one

And I tell myself to let the story end
And my heart will rest in someone else's hand
My 'why not me?' philosophy began
And I say

Ooh, how'm I gonna get over you?
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday, 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 you make me
Hang from your hands

But 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?
That'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
I say

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

Say it's coming 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

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

    I wish I had know this song before! Better late than never, it might come in handy one day again. Not that I hope so XD

  5. Sam S

  6. AsleepAtTheKeys

    Hey a free leather jacket is like a $100-200 value

  7. George LeBlanc

    I'm taking off my winter clothes now in a public library when you (sara) I  get a charge or turned on to watch you dance & sing at the same time, but the best part of the video iswhen you sing to no music you look so extra pretty in that skirt & boots, wow if I was that security guard I wouldn't ask you to leave & see if you were wearing a wedding ring & if you weren't I would probably flirt with you a little but not to loose my job.

  8. Sharon Seach

    She definitely doesn't have two left feet......but the old guys....their awkward dance moves are a hoot!

  9. George LeBlanc

  11. no po

    Had to break it off with him. LDR for 8 years. Finally get the chance to meet him in person and he refuses. It's because he wants to be with a girl where he lives. All this time leading me on for nothing. I love him. But I need to get over him

  12. Sean Xian

  26. George LeBlanc

    it's a cloudy day here. but you cheer me up.  your fan always   George f. leblanc jr.

  27. George LeBlanc

    I love the skirt & boots you end up with in the store, but love the way you sing without music too, thank god it's Friday it's raining cat & dogs here in Jackson Mississippi.  I get a charge out of watching you dance . you even look a little Spanish (mexician), like the store with flags in it.  I need to buy some of your cds because I really like the  way you sound & look, ypu're a hot tamale. very much so. a sex symbol too, like Marliyn Monroe.

  28. George LeBlanc

    this is a super great sounding song too. the end of the song is funny. but you fool everybody that you're mexician  just because you have dark hair.  I go to those Spanish super market too, sometimes.  you have a great voice too. & pretty.

  36. Jeremi Jason

    this is the first time i watch this video
    i always think she cant dance because most of her song is ballad and slow tempo, but that was a nice move of her

  37. Kunjal Randall

    I only discovered this song a few days ago. I’m going through a major life change and this song has saved me. It’s so uplifting and stops me from feeling down and crying at how my life has turned upside down.

    Sara, you probably won’t read this, but I want to say thank you. You are the epitome of what female role models should be.

  38. Majin66

    I love this song and the video. She looks so happy.
