I Can't Get Over You

Lyrics

Baby it's late, I'm so down and out
Drown myself over you
The longer I wait, the more I doubt
Was it just a phase that we went through
On the wings of love we flew a record-high
Can't believe it was meant to pass by
No I can't stop loving you
Nothing helps, no matter how I try
Torn, being ignored, babe it froze me to the core
But still it's you I'm living for

Counting the days, these long lonesome hours
I lost myself since I lost you
Then this is my fate - alone in the crowd
Forever screwed - crying over you
Just my biggest dream turned out to be a lie
But I just can't lay down and die
No I can't stop loving you
Nothing works, no matter how I try
Torn, being ignored, babe it froze me to the core
But still it's you I'm living for

You never told me we were through
So what did you expect I would do?
To forget it all? No...

I can't get over you
I never will, no matter how I try
Love of my life, you're the reason to survive
Do you really think that I just can stop loving you?
Without a word, without a reason why
So cruel, that ain't you - tell me love, what is the truth?
Baby please, one sign of life
I just need to know if you're alright

Robby talks about I Can't Get Over You

Just piano and vocal . I had the grand-piano tuned for recording most of the piano’s on the album. Once that was done I kept on playing through the night because the sound of the piano, all miked-up, through the headphones , was very inspiring.

Instantly I wrote this song and recorded it. Captured the atmosphere at the moment the song was as close within me as possible. I wanted this to be a hidden track but mentioned it on the track-list after all, because I don’t want it to be missed.

The quickest song I’ve ever written and the first I recorded right after writing it. It’s actually one of my favourites on this record.
