"I'll Never Get Over You (getting Over Me)" as written by and Diane Warren....
I hear you're taking the town again
Havin' a good time with all your good-time friends
I don't think that you think of me
You're on your own now, and I'm alone and free

I know that I should get on with my life
But a life lived without you could never be right

[Chorus]
As long as the stars shine down from the heavens,
Long as the rivers run to the sea,
I'll never get over you getting over me

I try to smile so the hurt won't show
Tellin' everybody I was glad to see you go
But the tears just won't go away (won't go away)
Loneliness found me, looks like it's here to stay

I know that I oughta find someone new
But all I find is myself always thinking of you

[Chorus]

Oh, no matter what I do,
Each night's a lifetime to live through
I can't go on like this
I need your touch
You're the only one I've ever loved
Oh oh ah

And as long as the stars shine down from the heavens,
Long as the rivers run to the sea,
I'll never get over you getting over me

(I'll never get over you getting over)
Never get over you getting over
I'll never get over you getting over me

    General CommentWhat? No one else commented yet? Aww.. how sad. I love this song. It soo describes how I feel about my ex right now. I'm pretty sure almost everyone could relate to this song at least once in their life..

    General CommentBoy ignores girl; the two break up; girl covers up the hurt; girl knows she must get on with life but can't seem to find the strength to do so.

    General CommentWell, the meaning is about as clear and self-explanatory as it gets.

    However, this is Songmeanings.net, so I'll save us all some time.

    IT'S ABOUT DRUGS :P

    General CommentThe line "I need your touch" once justified me associating this song with my former friends who are both Deaf & blind & read sign language by touching the hands of the signer & following the movements to "feel the signs". However, I've let them go, so the song's title need not be taken too literally, especially since it uses the word "never"

    General CommentI think it's about breaking up with someone and realizing that you made a mistake and they're the one that you should've been with. They're the one that got away and you're realizing your mistake years later.
