"Over You" as written by Brian Howes and Chris Daughtry....
Now that it's all said and done
I can't believe you were the one
To build me up and tear me down
Like an old abandoned house
What you said when you left
Just left me cold and out of breath
I felt as if I was in way to deep
Guess I let you get the best of me

Well, I never saw it coming
I should have started running
A long, long time ago!
And I never thought I'd doubt you
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know
I'm slowly getting closure
I guess it's really over
I'm finally gettin' better
Now I'm picking up the pieces
From spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together
Cause the day I thought I'd never get through, I got over you!

You took a hammer to these walls
Dragged the memories down the hall
Packed your bags, and walked away
There was nothing I could say
And when you slammed the front door shut
A lot of others opened up
So did my eyes, so I could see
That you never were the best for me

Well, I never saw it coming
I should have started running
A long, long time ago!
And I never thought I'd doubt you
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know
I'm slowly getting closure
I guess it's really over
I'm finally gettin' better
Now I'm picking up the pieces
From spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together
Cause the day I thought I'd never get through, I got over you!

Well, I never saw it coming
I should have started running
A long, long time ago!
And I never thought I'd doubt you
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know
Well, I never saw it coming
I should have started running
A long, long time ago!
And I never thought I'd doubt you
I'm better off without you
More than you, more than you know
I'm slowly getting closure
I guess it's really over
I'm finally gettin' better
Now I'm picking up the pieces
From spending all of these years
Putting my heart back together whoa
Putting my heart back together whoa
Cause I got over you, I got over you, I got over you
The day I thought I'd never get through, I got over you

    General CommentI LOVE this song. Finally, I am over this. I never thought I would be.

    These are my favorite; cause when we broke up, the last thing he did was walk down my hallway to the door.. =/ so weird how it relates:
    You took a hammer to these walls,
    Dragged the memories down the hall,
    Packed your bags and walked away.
    There was nothing I could say.
    And when you slammed the front door shut,
    A lot of others opened up,
    So did my eyes so I could see
    That you never were the best for me.

    MemoryThis song is pretty important to me right now and I guess I feel I should share my story too. So I dated my (now ex) boyfriend for 9 months and I'll honestly say they were the best of my life. I loved him with everything I had and I fought so hard for him. There were times when I could've easily gotten away with cheating on him and I was even asked to prom but I said no to everything just for him. I was always there for him and I did my best to talk to him and see him and he really meant the entire world to me. When summer came around, I realized he changed a little but I put it behind me and thought it was just a phase. While we were on the phone a week ago, we mutually agreed to break up because he had a lot of personal stuff to deal with and he just wasn't into it anymore. Well his best friend ratted him out about how he lied to me about a lot of things over the summer and how he flirted with other girls and how he talked shit about me and stopped caring. I called my ex and that phone call pretty much confirmed everything his friend told me and it made me see that my ex's excuse was total bullshit and at that point I was just totally disgusted but I still thought I would never get over him. It's been a week and I can honestly say I really don't care too much for him anymore. He was a real jerk and I deserve so much better. I can't wait for the day karma goes and kicks his ass ten times harder than he hurt me. This song describes all my feelings right now, and if he ever calls me again, it's an automatic no.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my sister and her ex b/fs relationship. No matter how rude she was to him sometimes he was still there for her, but when she didn't want to be with him anymore he was so hurt and then realized that it wasn't as good as he thought.
    I really like this song because it truly has alot of meaning!

    General CommentThis song is about finding the strength to admit that even though she left him out of the blue, he was still able to move on with his life and get over her.

    General CommentThis song is amazing to me. My long-term boyfriend left me last May, and I just got the strength to get over him. I listened to this in my car today, and the words really moved me to gather up more strength to move on.

    I really am better off without him. :)

    General CommentThis song struck a chord with me. There was a girl, and I was almost in love with her. I finally got the courage to ask her out, and she tried to be nice about it, but she rejected me. We never talked for a while, until she just one day started talking to me. I could tell she liked me now, but I moved on and was over her. This song is about that kind of thing, I think. Thanks a lot Liz Poch, if you read this I AM OVER YOU!!!!

    General CommentThis song's amazing.
    Everything about it.
    And it's true.
    And his voice is amazing.
    And I love Chris Daughtry.
    He was my favorite.
    Stupid Taylor Hicks had to beat him.
    Chris SO should've won.
    Okay. He's amazing.
