"Over and Over" as written by Tim Bruzon, Carl Brown, James (566427525) Walsh and Vidar (566427427) Norheim....
I feel it everyday, it's all the same
It brings me down, but I'm the one to blame
I've tried everything to get away
So here I go again
Chasing you down again
Why do I do this?

Over and over, over and over
I fall for you
Over and over, over and over
I try not to

It feels like everyday stays the same
It's dragging me down, and I can't pull away
So here I go again
Chasing you down again
Why do I do this?

Over and over, over and over
I fall for you
Over and over, over and over
I try not to
Over and over, over and over
You make me fall for you
Over and over, over and over
You don't even try

So many thoughts that I can't get out of my head
I try to live without you
Every time I do, I feel dead
I know what's best for me
But I want you instead
I'll keep on wasting all my time

Over and over, over and over
I fall for you
Over and over, over and over
I try not to
Over and over, over and over
You make me fall for you
Over and over, over and over
You don't even try to

    General CommentThe song is about having deep feelings for someone, and not having those feelings returned. The fact the feelings aren't returned causes depression, making the days drag on, as your thoughts are on them, and them only.

    You try to live without that person, but like a drug, you depend on them, so you feel dead inside. And as much as you want to, you can't move on. That person swims in your thoughts, and you can't get them out. What hurts the most; they don't even try to feel the same way.

    I dunno, feel free to critic.

    General CommentGawd.. I relate to every word of this song. I can hardly even listen to it anymore. It makes me think bout her.. and how she'll do just about anything with me, but when it comes to the damn relationship, she wont be with me.. and no matter how many times shes destroyed me, I just cant stop loving her, and I cant move on.

    General CommentWhat it mean's to me is he keep's falling in love with someone that really isn't right for him. He really doesn't want to but can't help him self. He knows he would be better off in time with out her but can't let her go.

    Song MeaningIts about drug use: "I feel it everyday, it's all the same
    It brings me down, but I'm the one to blame
    I've tried everything to get away
    So here I go again
    Chasing you down again"
    He tried to get over his addiction but he couldnt, hes making the drugs seem like a person in the song but its drugs. Over and over, over and over
    I fall for you
    Over and over, over and over
    I try not to"
    Again hes falling for the drugs and trying not to, he cant escape. Me and like 5 friends agree on dis.

    General Comment....just a thought.....this whole album was written after adams addiction to opiates. the song animal i have become etc.....he doesnt use pronouns like she. maybe he was reffering to his addiction. many people refer to it as relationship. especially opiates. like in girl with golden eyes by sixx a.m

    General CommentI think that the meaning is pretty straight forward... Someone loves someone else, but they can't be together. Whenever the guy is apart from the one he loves, he thinks hes over her, but then he falls for her over and over again, even though she doesn't even do anything to try and make him like her..

    General CommentAll I could think of when I heard this song was, "This song puts into words what I've been trying to say all along..." And I cried.

    General Commenti know it's about drug use but to me it's about a woman.she keeps on making him fall for her without trying to.that's the great thing about music,each person can interpret the lyrics differently.

    General CommentWell here's an interesting twist of how this song affects me? I'll warn you that further reading of this short story will result in utter shock and honestly make you think I'm a total freak but I don't care. Anyway. So I am 16 Almost 17. I am in love with a 12 year old. No not a bullshit crush I can honestly and whole heartedly say I love her. Now already this sounds crazy as hell right? because it is.... Anyway so I obviously cannot date her or anything even if she liked me back... which it just so happens she feels the same way about me. But if you were a 12 year old girls father would you let a 17 year old date her? Hah fuck no... Exactly my problem so I've had to try and get her out of my head and this song is absolutely perfect... Whilst it helps though it would seem as though it brings me to tears half the time I really get into it and sing along... I just want to be with her but I fucking can't and it literally hurts my heart to be without her... Thank you Three Days Grace I love you guys you've at least managed to dull some of the pain.

    General CommentThis song for me means someone is making the same mistakes over and over. It kind of sounds like the way an addiction will pull you in over and over even though you don't want it, yet you keep wasting your time trying to feel alive again,
