Getting Over You

Getting Over You

I cannot put a bandage on my heart
Hoping this wound will soon heal
I can't pretend that this is no big deal
You have torn apart all my zeal

I will not just put your pictures away
Trying to forget you day by day
The love I have will not just go astray
But I will survive, living this way

To let you go really hurts me so
Your memory won't be easy to forget
I have never felt so low
I am not really ready to let go yet

It''s going to be hard getting over you
This love I had was all that I knew
I know I have to find a way
To forget you in some latter day

I guess I should be used to rejection
Another woman left me long ago
But even then, I've never felt this low
I asked for your hand and you said no

I will miss your beautiful eyes
I will miss your loving ways
That made me want to live
And give you all I had to give

That won't be easy for me to do
You see I am still so in love with you
This will be the hardest thing
I've ever had to do,

I'll spend a lifetime getting over you

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
