Doe Paoro - Over



[Verse 1:]
I stay busy, I know
But it lives in me, actively backing me into corners
Can't control the impression you left on me
Like a tattoo that I never asked for
Under my skin
Over and over

[Verse 2:]
I avoid the places that remind me
Yet still your shadow's behind me
Calls like a siren
It questions, it teases, it never gives reason
It's thoughts of you [?]
Like I'm trying to put off starting over

[Pre-Chorus 1:]
I flip on a dime
Keep changing my mind
Won't somebody tell me please

[Chorus:]
How long does it take?
(How much longer can you take?)
Will I get better?
(How much more before you break?)
Now that I'm older
Does it get easier to get over
[Verse 3:]
Calming wisdom from friends
"You've got to get under
In order to start to get over again"
But what should I do if I fear
I may just be too sensitive?
I'm not built for this
Dug too deep to start over

[Pre-Chorus 2:]
I flip on a dime
But I can't seem to find
My way to sweet release

[Pre-Chorus 3:]
I know it's just time
But it's taking all mine
Won't someone tell me please

[Chorus:]
How long does it take?
(How much longer can you take?)
Will I get better?
(How much more before you break?)
Now that I'm older
Does it get easier to get over?
[Outro:]
Over and over and over and over and over
How long does it take?
(How much longer can you take?)
Will I?
(How much more before you break?)
Now that I'm older
Does it get easier to get over?
And over and over and over
And over
To get over
Over and over and over and over
To get over
