When The Grass Grows Over Me lyrics

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

(Chorus:)
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 to hear me 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 of the night I'm hurting through and through
And as long as I'm alive I know I can't be free
But I'll be over you when the grass grows over me
