Lyrics: Never Gonna Get Over You

“Never Gonna Get Over You” by Ocasek & Orr

We sat and talked through the night, I was feeling full and light

And all the words meant the same, they bounced along on a plane

And everything was going as well as it should

We tried to make it through the night if we could

You were the woman who was misunderstood

 

But you know I’m never gonna get (no no) over you

Said I’m never gonna get (no no) over you

Well I’m never gonna get over you

Never gonna get, never gonna get over you

 

I see your face in the mirror, see your silk on the floor

It seems like you never left but you’re not here anymore

Yeah and something keeps on shaking inside

It’s a feeling that I just can’t hide

Jealous lovers seem to lose their pride

 

But you know I’m never gonna get (no no) over you

Well I’m never gonna get (no no) over you

Said I’m never gonna get over you

Never gonna get, never gonna get over you

 

(Never, never gonna get over you)

(Never, never gonna get over you)

 

I see your face in the mirror, see your silk on the floor

It seems like you never left but you’re not here anymore

And everything was going as well as it should

We tried to make it through the night if we could

You were the woman who was misunderstood

 

But you know I’m never gonna get (no no) over you

Said I’m never gonna get (no no) over you

Well I’m never gonna get over you

Never gonna get, never gonna get over you

 

(Never, never gonna get over you)

Never gonna get over you, no no no
