"I'm Not Over" as written by Tobias Erik Karlsson and Chad Wolfinbarger....
What a waste of time
The thought crossed my mind
That I never missed a beat
Cant explain the who or what I was
Trying to believe
What would you do
What would you do
Do you know
I once had a grip on everything
It feels better to let go

I'm not over
I'm not over you just yet
Can not hide it
Your not that easy to forget
I'm not over

Never took the chance
Could have jumped the fence
But was scared of my own 2 feet
Could have crossed the line
It was black and white
No contrast to be seen
What would you do
What would you do
Do you know
Was it all a joke
Never had control
I'm not better on my own

I'm not over
I'm not over you just yet
Can not hide it
Your not that easy to forget
I'm not over

What a waste of time
The thought crossed my mind
Can't explain this thing or what I mean
I'm trying to let go

I'm not over
I'm not over you just yet
Can not hide it
Your not that easy to forget
I'm not over

I'm not over
I'm not over you just yet
Can not hide it
Your not that easy to forget
I'm not over

I'm not over

    Song Meaningin my opinion, the guy is not over the girl. he clearly let her go and now he is contemplating about the fact that she is gone.
    parts of the song, is him talking about somewhat being tricked into being in love, "was it all a joke"
    he was afraid of falling, but he fell for her, and now she's gone and he's regretting it.

    -first hand experience.
    my ex put this on page, a week after we split, and i was trying to figure out what he meant by it, and it's basically him regretting he let me go.

    That sums up perfectly what this songs about, for me. Letting a girl go and realizing that she was the one who got away.

    General Commentthis song..has been stuck in my head for a while now. awesome song.
    personally, i think it's about a guy really digs a girl, but keeps it inside for so long, :
    never took the chance
    could have jumped the fence
    i was scared of my own two feet
    could have crossed the line
    it was black and white
    no contrast to be seen
    and now its too late to do anything.
    but anybody want to explain :
    what a waste of time
    the thought crossed my mind
    but i never missed a beat
    cant explain the who or what i was
    trying to believe
    ?

    General CommentI think that the line means that he/she was in denial about their feelings truthfully, it's like the old saying "You don't know what you got til' it's gone"

    General CommentI agree with the people that say that it's about a guy who let a girl go, and then realized that he was the one missing out.

    Between "You're not that easy to forget," "Cannot hide it," and the "It feels better to let go," which later turns to "I'm trying to let go," at the end of the song... It just seems like what makes the most sense.

    General Commentnaynay32 asked what these lines meant...
    what a waste of time..the thought crossed my mind..but i never missed a beat...cant explain the who or what i was
    trying to believe .....

    He`s just second-guessing himself on how he spent his time pursuing this chik and now she is gone....Kinda like a "wow" moment...what the heck was i doing??? ...and acknowledging now, that while it was going on...maybe he fleetingly realized that it would end up being a waste of time....(the thought crossed my mind but i never missed a beat) ...he did it anyway...and now he`s having a hard time explaining it (later on the lyrics say...what would you do???) Dazed and confused and wishing she were still there....
