i don’t want to get over you lyrics – the magnetic fields

i don’t want to get over you
i guess i could take a sleeping pill
and sleep at will
and not have to go through
what i go through
i guess i should take prozac, right?
and just smile all night
at somebody new
somebody not too bright
but sweet and kind
who would try to get you off my mind
i could leave this agony behind
which is just what i’d do
if i wanted to
but i don’t want to get over you

’cause i don’t want to get over love
i could listen to my therapist
pretend you don’t exist
and not have to dream of
what i dream of
i could listen to all my friends
and go out again
and pretend it’s enough
or i could make a career of being blue
i could dress in black and read camus
smoke clove cigarettes and drink vermouth
like i was seventeen
that would be a scream
but i don’t want to get over you
