"over and over" as written by and Rachael Amanda Yamagata....
I really thought I was okay
I really thought I was just fine
But when I woke this time
There was nothing to take me back to sleep
To take you off my mind
This time

[Chorus]
And I keep saying over and over and over and over again
Let it rain, let it rain
Over and over and over and over again
Let it rain, let it rain

I need to hide within a storm
So happy ending come
And bring the winds that scream
And spill the fog all over time
And hold me in your standstill ground
And I will sit down
And you'll be washed away
You'll be washed away

[Chorus]

I really thought I was okay
I really thought I was just fine
But when I woke up this time
There was nothing to take you off my mind

[Chorus]

I need within the storm
So happy ending come
And bring the winds that scream
And spill the fog all over time
And break through every door
And strip away between
And raise the rivers high
Just help me drown
And hold me in your standstill ground
I will sit down
And you'll be washed away
You'll be washed away

    My InterpretationIn order to forget him, she needs to give up a part of herself because they used to be so close that he is like a part of her. She has to stand in the rain and let the heavy rain take the sad (and happy) memories with him away.
    “I will sink down/ And you’ll be washed away/You’ll be washed away” means that only when she sinks and a part of her disappears can she totally forget him. She’ll give up this part of her soul as a gift of his funeral (of course metaphorically). After this ceremony, hopefully he will be washed away, so that she can finally continue her life without him.

    General CommentI can listen to this song on repeat all night long. It's about the need for a catharsis of sorts, to wake up one day and realize that you need a new beginning, and not just hurt yourself the same way, with the same guy, over and over again.

    General CommentI think this song is about how someone thinks they're just fine, but when something terrible happens they need a special someone to be with them.

    Lyric CorrectionSome of the lyrics are off:

    I need to hide within the storm
    So have the lightning come
    And bring the winds that scream
    Spill the fog all over town
    And break through every door
    And strip away the trees
    And raise the rivers high
    Just help me drown
    And hold me in your standstill ground
    I will sink down
    And you'll be washed away
    You'll be washed away
