WHEN I GET OVER YOU (4:13)

When I Get Over You - 1999

The Mechanics go latin. The biting use of acoustic guitar, coupled with the truly venomous lyric make this one of the sharpest Mechanics tracks to date. More please.

Lyrics

When I get over you
I'll be who I want to be
I'll sleep where I want to sleep
And laugh at your memory

When I get over you
I'm not gonna need a friend
I'm not gonna tell the truth
I'll never do that again
You'll never see me cry
You're gonna see something new
You're not gonna watch me die
When I get over you

When I get over this
I won't make the same mistake
I don't wanna hear your voice
I don't wanna see your face
I know it's all in the past
And it's long overdue
I know that I won't look back
When I get over you

Did somebody teach you how to lie
And take what you're feeling from your eyes
It's a sad disguise
Take it off and say goodbye

You'll never see me cry
You're gonna see something new
You're not gonna watch me die
When I get over you

Did somebody teach you how to lie
And take what you're feeling from your eyes
It's a sad disguise
Take it off and say goodbye

When I get over you
I'll be who I want to be
I'll sleep where I want to sleep
And laugh at your memory

When I get over you
I'm not gonna need a friend
I'm not gonna tell the truth
I'll never do that again

When I get over this
I won't make the same mistake
I don't wanna hear your voice
I don't wanna see your face
