"Not Over You" as written by and Gavin/tedder Degraw....
Dreams
That's where I have to go
To see your beautiful face anymore
I stare at a picture of you
And listen to the radio
Hope
Hope there's a conversation
Where we both admit we had it good
But until then
It's alienation I know
That much is understood
And I realize

If you ask me how I'm doin'
I would say I'm doin' just fine
I would lie and say that you're not on my mind
But I go out
And I sit down
At a table set for two
And finally I'm forced to face the truth
No matter what I say
I'm, not over you

Damn
Damn girl you do it well
And I thought you were innocent
Took this heart and put it through hell
And still your magnificent
I, I'm a boomerang
Doesn't matter how you throw me
Turn around
And I'm back in the game
Even better than the old me
But I'm not even close without you

If you ask me how I'm doin'
I would say I'm doin' just fine
I would lie and say that you're not on my mind
But I go out
And I sit down
At a table set for two
And finally I'm forced to face the truth
No matter what I say
I'm, not over you

And if I had the chance
To renew
You know there isn't a thing I wouldn't do
I could get back on the right track
But only if you'd be convinced
So until then

If you ask me how I'm doin'
I would say I'm doin' just fine
I would lie and say that you're not on my mind
But I go out
And I sit down
At a table set for two
And finally I'm forced to face the truth
No matter what I say
I'm, not over you
Not over you
Not over you
Not over you

    General CommentI love this song. Again its one of those self explanatory songs. I love how they got back together at the end.

    Song MeaningI think it means it’s over for the guy from a relationship, and he just wanted to face the truth. Thats why he says: If you ask me, how I'm doing I would say "I'm doing just fine..."
    I would lie and say that you're not on my mind


    Very Good Song!

    General Commenti feel no need to explain what the lyrics mean considering they couldnt be more self explanatory but this is one of the most relatable songs out there everyone knows the feeling in this song as it is very common.

    General CommentI love this song, and the lyrics ring true for anyone who has gone through a break up and when it seemed right at the time but to everyone around you, you are putting on the front that you are ok and fine, and that you arn't even giving that person another thought, and its when you are put in certain situations ("But I go out
    And I sit down, At a table set for two)
    That it makes you remember those rituals together and then other memories come up until you have the relisation that maybe you arn't over them, even though the other person treated you not the best, there is something that keeps you hanging on, because there is always that one person who gets under your skin

    My InterpretationThis song is about a couple breaking up. The guy is trying to get over it but just can't. He's still in love.

    General CommentHe was in a relationship where she slapped him around ("Put this heart through hell") but he always just loved her. then they broke up and he doesn't want to show his feelings about her because he doesn't want to complicate things or something. But at the end of the day he is always reminded how he truly does love her.

    Good song and exactly the situation I'm in!
