"You're Never Over" as written by Marshall B. Iii Mathers, Mike Mainieri, Gerard Mcmahon and Justin Gregory Smith....
The days are cold livin' without you
The nights are long, I'm growing older
I miss the days alone, thinkin' about you
You may be gone, but you're never over

If Proof could see me now, I know he'd be proud
Somewhere in me deep down, there's something in me he found
That made him believe in me, now no one can beat me now
You try, it'll be them doors, on Dre's Phantom believe me clowns
That means suicide homie, you'll never throw me
Off of this course, blow me
Bitch I do this all for the sport only
But I want it all, I'm not just talking awards homie
And the balls in my court and it's lonely
On top of the world when you're the only
One with the balls and your shorts
To leave them jaws on the floor with no re-
Morse, remember that when they get to doggin' you boy homie
So y'all can just get to bloggin' about bologna
I'm not gonna stop the saga
Continue, no stoppin' the force Obi, I'm moppin' the floors
With them, I keep tryna pass it, but they keep on droppin' the torch
And it won't be, long til this sport is O-V-
E-R, just blazin' and we knockin' them doors and no we
Ain't pumpkins on Halloween but we'll show up on your porch, so be
Careful what you say, there ain't no punks over here so follow me
Through the fog like I'm S-N-double-O-P
Let me guide you through the smoke G
If only I wasn't travellin' down this road by my lonely
No one who knew me like you will ever know me
I don't think you understand how much you meant to me

The days are cold livin' without you
The nights are long, I'm growing older
I miss the days alone, thinkin' about you
You may be gone, but you're never over
And it don't stop (oh)
And it don't quit (oh)
And it don't stop (oh)
And it don't quit (oh)
And I miss you (oh)
I just miss you (oh)
I just miss you (oh)
Homie I'll never forget you (no)

For you, I wanna write the sickest rhyme of my life
So sick it'll blow up the mic, it'll put the dyna in mite
Yeah it'll make the dopest MC wanna jump off a bridge and shit hisself
Tap dancin' all over the beat, it'll jump off the page and spit itself
Yeah it's the best thing I could do right now for you Doodi is to rap
So I'm a fuck til I die, yeah I'm a do it to death
And itstead of mourning your death, I'd rather celebrate your life
Elevate to new height, step on the gas and accelerate, I'm a need two mics
Cause the way that I'm feelin' tonight, everything I can just do right
There's nothing that I can do wrong, I'm too strong and I'm just too hyped
Just finished the rhyming and bust it and excuse the corny metaphor
They'll never catch up to all this energy that I've mustered
So God just help me out while I fight through this grievin' process
Tryna process this loss is makin' me nauseous
But this depression ain't takin' me hostage
I've been patiently watchin' this game, pacin' these hallways
You had faith in me always
Proof you knew I'd come out of this slump, rise from these ashes
Come right back on they asses, and go Mike Tyson on these bastards
And I'm a show 'em, blow 'em out the water slaughter 'em homes
I'm on so many bells the only place they can hit me is below
Homie I know I'm, never gonna be the same with you
I woulda never came in this game, I'm going insane without you
Matter of fact it was just the other night, had another dream about you
You told me to get up, I got up and spread my wings and I flew
You gave me a reason to fight, I was on my way to see you
You told me nah Doodi you're not layin' on that table I knew
I was gonna make it, soon as you said think of Hailie, I knew
There wasn't no way that I was gonna ever leave them babies, and Proof
Not many are lucky enough to have a guardian angel like you
Lord I'm so thankful, please don't think I don't feel grateful, I do
Just grant me the strength that I need, for one more day to get through
So homie this is your song, I dedicate this to you
I love you Doodi

The days are cold livin' without you
The nights are long, I'm growing older
I miss the days alone, thinkin' about you
You may be gone, but you're never over
And it don't stop (oh)
And it don't quit (oh)
And it don't stop (oh)
And it don't quit (oh)
And I miss you (oh)
I just miss you (oh)
I just miss you (oh)
Homie I'll never forget you (no)

    General CommentAbsolutely great song. It reminds me of my brother who died a few years back and the great part of it is, that it provided me with a little more peace than I have managed to make on my own over the years with some of the lines in his song. I used to listen to The Offsprings 'Gone away' when I was thinking about him but now I see this is a much better song to listen to because simply of the line "And instead of mourning your death, I'd rather celebrate your life".

    It's a much better way of thinking about it rather than a song that says 'Why, why, why - take me!' which I could only wish in my case. So now I will remember his life instead of his death and all the great times we had.

    General CommentMy favourite thing about this song is the emotion in his voice. He puts so much heart into this song that it has easily become one of my favorite Em songs. Such a powerful song to help you through the loss of a loved one

    General CommentBeautiful epitaph for a lost friend. Even using their inside-joke/nickname... I'm just... Speechless. Telling Proof he's going to remain a rapper till the day he dies. "Like toy soldiers" coming true.. Who would have thought... Almost four years, before Em could finally say those words. Four years of mourning. That's true friendship.

    Oh... the meaning... Eminem is saying throughout the song, that he's going to struggle everyday to be the best rapper he can, to keep his memory alive, and if there's an afterlife, to try to make Proof proud.

    You may be gone, but you're never over.

    R.I.P. Proof.

    General CommentI love Em's new habit of reviving little pieces of my 80's childhoood... The loop in the beat is "Cry Little Sister" from the Lost Boys soundtrack, I remember hearing this and Martika's "Toy Soldiers" on the radio layin' in the back seat of the car while tryna ignore my mom n' dad in the front seat arguin' and just zonin' on the song tryna forget that I was there. I love the new direction and the use of synth rock and popular music in his beats. I don't know who originally sang 25 to Life, but I love it and all the little electronic noises. Em's flows are better here than they were on Relapse 1 and I love the fuckin' raw power in his voice.

    My OpinionThis is a great song undoubtedly and a touching tribute to his best friend, but I'm bothered by one aspect. The line "excuse the corny metaphor, but they'll never 'ketchup' to all this energy that I've 'mustard.'"

    That's not a metaphor. It's a pun :-(

    My OpinionI love eminem. Recovery is such a great album. And this song is amazing ! I love it. I'm actually getting a tattoo that says "I got up I spread my wings and I flew, just grant me the strength that I need for one more day to get through". I know they don't go together in the song but I love it and think it goes really nice together :)
