Not Over You - Gavin De Graw

That's where I have to go to see your beautiful face anymore
I stare at a picture of you and listen to the radio

Hope there's a conversation where we both admit we had it good
But until then it's alienation
I know
That much is understood and I realize

If you ask me how I'm doing I would say I'm doing just fine
I would lie and say that you're not on my mind
But I go out
And I sit down at a table set for two
And finally I'm forced to face the truth
No matter what they say I'm not over you
Not over you

Damn girl you do it well and I thought you were innocent
Took this heart and put it through hell
Still you're magnificent

I'm a boomerang
Doesn't matter how you throw me
Turn around and I'm back in the game
Even better than the old me but I'm not even close without you


And if I had the chance to renew
You know there isn't a thing I wouldn't do
I could get back on the right track but only if you'd be convinced
So until then


Not over you
Not over you
Not over you

Meanng, Main Idea, and Message of The Song

To begin our discussion about this Gavin De Graw's Not Over You song, let me ask you a question: what are you gonna do if your lover decides to end the romantic relationship with you because of your bad behaviour which you are aware of? I believe there are many possible answers that you could give. You may not able to accept his/her decision and try to persuade your lover to change his/her mind. Or you may accept it and fulfill whatever your lover wants including to end the romantic relationship between you and your lover because you realize your mistakes and by doing this you want to make it up.

Of course if you love him/her and you need him/her so much, it is the first option that you would take. Usually, tt's only after you couldn't change your lover's mind that you switch to the second choice and accept that decision to end the relationship.

Well, after reading the opening paragraph above, you have guessed what this Gavin De Graw's Not Over You song tells us about. You're right. This song tells us about a man's state of mind after being left by his girl. He is frustrated and depressed. He misses her so much. He wants to see her beautiful face. But he cannot do anything. What he can do is only dreaming (verse 1).

Even if it's over now, he wishes that their togetherness was good and the relationship ends in a good way (verse 2). No matter what happens, he still loves her and wants to make her happy. Therefore, anytime she asks him about his condition, he lies and says that he is fine (verse 3/ chorus). However, sometimes he blames the girl for what happens to him who is now in pain. Miraculously, he still adores her (verse 4). So, he thinks of himself like a boomerang. However hard he girl tries to throw him, he will come back to lover her (verse 5). And now, all she has is a little hope to rebuild the relationship with her. It it comes true, he promises that he would to anything to come back to the right track just like what she expects (verse 6).

Well, that's my interpretation of Gavin De Graw's Not Over You song. How about you? What are you gonna do if you were Gavin De Graw?
