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

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

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
[Chorus]
Ooh, how'm I gonna get over you?
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday, heyyyy I wish you'd want me to stay
I'll be alright, just not tonight,
Someday

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

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

I'm not the girl that I intend to be,
Oh darling, just you wait and see
But this time not for you but just for me,
And I say
[Chorus]
Ooh, how'm I gonna get over you?
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday, heyyyy I wish you'd want me to stay
I'll be alright, just not tonight,

Someday, say it's coming soon
Someday, without you
All I can do
Is to get over pass the ghost of you
Wave goodbye to me
Won't say I'm sorry
I'll be alright
Once I find the other side of someday

Ooh, how'm I gonna get over you?
I'll be alright, just not tonight
Someday, heyyy I wish you'd want me to stay
I'll be alright, just not tonight,
Someday
