Song: I Just Don’t Think I’ll Ever Get Over You

I drink good coffee every morning
Comes from a place that’s far away
And when I’m done I feel like talking
Without you here there is less to say
I don’t want you thinking I’m unhappy
What is closer to the truth
That if I lived till I was 102
I just don’t think I’ll ever get over you
I’m no longer moved to drink strong whiskey
‘Cause I shook the hand of time and I knew
That if I lived till I could no longer climb my stairs
I just don’t think I’ll ever get over you
Your face it dances and it haunts me
Your laughter’s still ringing in my ears
I still find pieces of your presence here
Even after all these years
But I don’t want you thinking I don’t get asked to dinner
‘Cause I’m here to say that I sometimes do
Even though I may soon feel the touch of love
I just don’t think I’ll ever get over you
If I lived till I was 102
I just don’t think I’ll ever get over you


So I just happened on this song which is apparently on the Garden State Soundtrack. Typically this would be a very sad song, but I’m absolutely ecstatic.

Not long ago, I would find this song causing a tropical storm in the southern portion of my mental health. Even though the days are, on average, fair to partly cloudy. (To run with the weather analogy) I just can’t explain how wonderful it feels to listen to a sad song and have it remind me of no one. Finding yourself holding onto no one, and allowing no one to have a hold on you, to the point that you feel you’d never get over them. Having recently felt previously said way, I find it refreshing to be rid of it. I’m glad that I was able to love someone to the point I’d never get over them, but being able to come out of a terrible state of longing for the lost past, feels better. Suffice it to say, but it feels better to have love and to lost, then to have never loved at all.

So I found myself listening to the song several times, singing along and smiling. It’s a beautiful heart felt song. The lyrics speak volumes on love. Listening to it and getting an emotional high is exhilarating. Even though her face does dance through my mind from time to time, and I miss what we shared, I’m over her. I will never allow the love that I felt go away, it just bears no hold on me. So people I implore you, hold on to no negative thoughts, Live, Sing, Dance and be free.
