When you left I thought that
I would soon be over you,
Even told myself that
I would soon find someone new;
Time and tears have come and gone
but not your memory,
But I'll be over you
when the grass grows over me.

Yes, I'll be over you
when you're standing over me,
And as you look down at the
cold, cold ground I'm sleeping in,
Don't expect for me to say that
I still love you then,
'Cause I'll be over you when
the grass grows over me.

Even when my eyes are closed
they keep on seeing you,
Every minute time goes on
I'm hurting through and through;
And as long as I live
I know I won't be free,
But I'll be over you when
the grass grows over me.

Yes, I'll be over you
when you're standing over me,
And as you look down at the
cold, cold ground I'm sleeping in,
Don't expect for me to say that
I still love you then,
'Cause I'll be over you when
the grass grows over me.
