Lauv’s “Getting Over You” Is Perfect Counter-Programming For Valentine’s Day
There’s nothing like a little counter-programming on Valentine’s Day. Sick of all the loved-up smooth jams? Well, Lauv’s “Getting Over You” is the song for you. “Waking up in a cold sweat, someone else in this cold bed,” the 23-year-old sulks. “I’d do anything to not be alone.” That takes us to the very emo and very catchy pre-chorus. “I tried spending my nights under someone new, but the truth is I could spend my whole life getting over you.” Play this while scrolling through your ex’s Instagram.
“I’ve been playing ‘Getting Over You’ live for a while and it means a lot to me, so I’m excited to finally officially share it with the world,” Lauv reveals. “The lyrics are about the feeling after a breakup where you think you might literally never get over it, and you’re living with what feels like an endless cycle of self-destruction, loathing, and emptiness.” The relatable track was co-written with T-Collar and Michael Matosic. It follows global hits “I Like Me Better” and “A Different Way.” Listen below.
