Music Monday: Sara Bareilles- Gonna Get Over You

This song reminds me a lot of my post last week. This song is all about letting go, moving on and allowing yourself time to grieve. I love Sara Bareilles and I'm so grateful I saw her perform in November.

Should be sayin' that to you by now, shouldn't I?
Layin' down the law that I live by
Though maybe next time

I've got a thick tongue, brimming with the words that go unsung
Simmer then the burn for a someone, a wrong one

And I tell myself to let the story end
My heart will rest in someone else's hand
My 'why not me?' philosophy began

And I say ooh, how'm I gonna get over you?
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday, oh I wish you'd want me to stay
I'll be alright, just not tonight


Maybe is a vicious little word that can slay me
Keep me when I'm hurting and make me
Hang from your hands

Well, no more
I won't beg to buy a shot at your back door
If I make it at the thought of you, what for?
It's not me anymore


And I'm not the girl that I intend to be
I dare you darling, just you wait and see
But this time not for you but just for me

I'll be alright, just not tonight
