Paycheck, Johnny - I Never Got Over You Lyrics

I couldn't keep my mind on all the work I had to do today
Your memories kept on clouding up my mind getting in my way
Next they'll up and fire me and I'll be wondering what I'm gonna do
The only thing that I can say that makes me act and feel this way is
I never no I never got over you

I still see your dark eyes
Almost everywhere I turn
I keep standing on the bridges
I thought I had burned
I can still feel you near me
In everything I try to do
And the only thing that I can say that makes me act and feel this way is
I never lord I never got over you

Old memories have the damndest way of showing up at the most unusual time
They can walk right through the darkest part of your mind and turn on every light
Or take a perfect crystal day and turn it into a misty shade of blue

And the only thing that I can say that makes me act and feel this way is
I never never got over you

I still see your dark eyes
Almost everywhere I turn
I keep standing on the bridges
I thought I had burned

I can still feel you near me
In everything I try to do
And the only thing that I can say that makes me act and feel this way is
I never lord I never got over you
Yes the only thing that I can say that makes me act and feel this way is
I never honey I never got over you

    Paycheck had demons that kept him from achieving that George Jones level of greatness, doesn’t mean he wasn’t great tho , just had no breaks .

  12. Mike Rose

    Just read the opinions below....they say it all !!! Country died when we lost Johnny ,George, Waylon, Willie, Don Williams, Merle Haggard, just to name a few....I'm 74, and still play it all....:-)

  93. Frances Broadrick

    I was madly in love with a super guy named "Bill" When Johnny Was So Popular. I Will Never Forget Bill Nor Johnny Paycheck. Bill Loved his music and would come riding in to pick me up with Johnny Paycheck music blasting. He would sing "she's got more love in her little finger than all the rest. It was worth every minute of our time. Bill drifted off into the sunset and was a desperado for a while, until he kept meeting one after the other and I am not sure if he has ever been really happy! Just Life I Suppose! In Life You Meet One And Only One Who You Will Never Ever Forget! Thanks Johnny For Your Great Love Songs! You Are Missed! Your Music Lives On!
