"I'll Be Over You" as written by Randy Goodrum and Steven Lee Lukather....
Some people live their dreams
Some people close their eyes
Some people's destiny
Passes by

There are no guarantees
There are no alibis
That's how our love must be
Don't ask why

It takes some time
God knows how long
I know that I can forget you

As soon as my heart stops breakin'
Anticipating
As soon as forever is through
I'll be over you

Remembering times gone by
Promises we once made
What are the reasons why
Nothing stays the same

There were the nights holding you close
Someday I'll try to forget them
Someday I'll be over you

    General CommentUsed to be the song that cruised [forever] around my head when my girlfriend left me, back when...

    Forever is through by now; nothing stays the same, not even heartbreaks ;-) So, today, I still love to listen to the song, without emotional ties, breakdowns & other no-no's.

    General CommentFirst off wtf is wrong with the 80's? People keep saying I know it's from the 80's but.... WTF! The 80's was the time when allot of the best music, and movies were made. Not to mention I was made in the 80's which makes it even better.

    That being said the lyrics are pretty straightforward. This song came on my ipod this morning on the way to work. It doesn't remind me of someone special, because there is no such thing. It reminds me of a girl that ripped my heart to shreds time, and time again. Finally I had to tell her good bye for good. She is just another face in the crowd now. I hope the day I forget comes soon.

    MemoryIt's been a long, long time since I've heard this song, and wow, it does bring back to the surface some mistakes that were both her fault and mine. It's that whole Forrest Gump story, best friends from a young age, but the girl couldn't see how much he was trying to help her. She still doesn't. Song speaks from me because I'd rather not forget her because she is a sister to me and when we do see each other, it's just like the old times again. I see her a lot now, actually. I'll never be over her, and I just want this to have a happier ending

    Basically, this song is about an undying love within the singer, whether it be unrequited or not. Either way, it seems he loves her still and believes he will never be over it because its so strong.

    My OpinionWhy do people keep saying "even though it's from the 80's" as if that's a bad thing? Some of the best music is from the 80's! No need to apologize for enjoying 80's music.

    General CommentI can't help but think that this song sounds a lot like a boyband's song. I still love the band, but this song always sounds a little odd to me.

    General CommentThis verse says it all.
    He will never be over her.
    Since forever is... well... forever
    He will never be over her.

    As soon as forever is through
    I'll be over you"
