He's Still Not Over Her

lyrics

He'd always meant to take her picture down
Now the frame is cracked, edges turning brown
He'd fall asleep staring in her eyes
In his dreams, there were no goodbyes
Waking up lying on the floor, he'd realize

He's still not over her
He's still not over her
the trial is over
he’s still a prisoner

His friend said, "Man, don't let it get you down,
I'll call you later we'll all go into town"
when he heard the phone ringing, he threw it on the floor
took a last look and staggered out the door
he heard her voice saying
what are you doing this for

He's still not over her
He's still not over her
the trial is over
he’s still a prisoner

Sometimes he sees her from the corner of his eye
a glimpse of a face in a crowd passing by
No one turns around when he calls her name
He's shuffles through the cold December rain

The picture's gone from the nail up on the wall
The phone's stopped ringing here's no one left to call
black satin bows have all come undone
plastic flowers faded by the sun
A promise was made and now the deed is done

He's still not over her
He's still not over her
the trial is over
he’s still a prisoner
