The Magnetic Fields I Don't Want to Get Over You Lyrics

Last updated: 06/13/2014 07:21:00 PM

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 17 that would be a scream but I
don't want to get over you.

Finally Googled the Lyrics | Reviewer: Steph Siegfried | 6/13/14

I've loved this song for years but was always under the impression that Merritt was singing, "... and wreak hammu (havoc), smoke clove cigarettes and drink the news". I'm glad I finally know the real lyrics! Years of unrealized confusion.

dress in black and read camus | Reviewer: benway | 8/7/11

i got this song on a compilation off a magazine cover..and i was never the same after hearing it. like discovering 'the smiths' all over again, mercurial music. i got '69 love songs' much later than i should have, but like bands like 'neu' theres never such a thing as too late really. gold sounds.

Agreed! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 6/10/10

Gotta agree with the guy beofre, this is an awesome song, got sort of a joy division sound to it, and the lyrics are amazing. from the album '69 love songs', worth a look for anyone, very ecletic and interesting

Best song ever! | Reviewer: Jessica | 4/21/10

Not many people know about this song, but it should be world famous because this song is just... AMAZING! The lyrics are so clever and the instrumentals are totally wicked :) This song is so good I just HAD to write a review! Magnetic Fields for life <3
