  • I tried hard to make you want me
    But we're not supposed to be
    And the truth will always haunt me
    Even though it set me free
    And my tears flow like the ocean
    As they floated in the breeze
    They were falling in slow motion
    And they brought me to my knees

    Oh, you're haunting me, taunting me all in my brain
    Turn off the light and now all that remains
    Fills me with doubt
    And I'm shouting your name out loud
    Why do you wanna put me through the pain?
    I get the feeling I'll never escape
    I can't hide away from the shame of you

    Tears on the ground, tears on my pillow
    You won't bring me down
    And I'll get over you
    These tears will get me through
    And I'll get over you

    I'll, I'll, I'll get over you
    I'll, I'll, oh yeah
    I'll, I'll, I'll get over you
    I'll, I'll, I'll get over you

    When did you lose your emotion?
    When did you become so cruel?
    And if you want to cut me open
    Says a thousands words 'bout you
    And in time I know you'll leave me
    Like a distant memory
    I know love can be so easy
    If I start by loving me, oh

    You're haunting me, taunting me all in my brain
    Turn off the light and now all that remains
    Fills me with doubt
    And I'm shouting your name out loud
    Why do you wanna put me through the pain?
    I get the feeling I'll never escape
    I can't hide away from the shame of you

    Oh, tears on the ground, tears on my pillow
    You won't bring me down
    And I'll get over you
    Oh yeah, woah, I'll get over you
    Woah, tears on the ground, rain at my window
    The pain washes out
    And I'll get over you
    These tears will get me through
    And I'll get over you

    I'll get over you
    I'll, I'll, I'll get over you
    I'll, I'll get over you
    I don't need you to call me tonight
    (I'll get over you)
    I don't need you to see me if I'm alright
    (I'll get over you)
    You left me, so leave me, I'm fine
    I'll be here getting on with my life

    Tears on the ground, tears on my pillow
    You won't bring me down, I'll get over you
    Rain at my window
    The pain washes out
    I'll get over you
    Woah, tears on the ground, rain at my window
    The pain washes out
    And I'll get over you
    Oh yeah, I'll get over you

    I'll get over
    I'll get over you Writer/s: JACK PATTERSON, JACK ROBERT PATTERSON, SAM ROMANS, SAMUEL ROMAN ELLIOT
