About the song
My dad sang in Barbershop Quartets so, through him, I learned to appreciate the work of Irving Berlin and other great songwriters of that era.

This is my attempt to write that kind of song: simple words, soaring melody, unabashedly sentimental... with lots of open vowels for the singer to play with.

So, Dad - this one is for you. Thank Barb for the beautiful vocal performance.

I started writing this song over thirty years ago... and I finally got around to finishing it.
When I Get Over You

You'll see me dance, you'll hear me laugh
You'll know that I've torn up your photograph
These are the things I'm going to do
When I get over you

I'll stand up tall, I'll smile again
I'll tell myself to stop remembering when
The love we shared was all I knew
When I get over you

So many plans I've got to make
So many chances I've got to take
I don't know if I'll have the time to cry
So much more love I've got to give
So much more life I've got to live
I don't know if I can but I will try

You'll be surprised, I'll be so strong
I'll show the world that I can carry on
And then I'll find somebody new
When I get over you
