Katy Perry: Never Really Over 

I'm losing my self-control 
Yeah, you're starting to trickle back in 
But I don't wanna fall down the rabbit hole 
Cross my heart, I won't do it again 

I tell myself, tell myself, tell myself, "Draw the line" 
And I do, I do 
But once in a while, I trip up, and I cross the line 
And I think of you 

Two years, and just like that 
My head still takes me back 
Thought it was done 
But I guess it's never really over 
Oh, we were such a mess 
But wasn't it the best? 
Thought it was done 
But I guess it's never really over 

Just because it's over doesn't mean it's really over 
And if I think it over, maybe you'll be comin' over again 
And I'll have to get over you all over again 
Just because it's over doesn't mean it's really over 
And if I think it over, maybe you'll be comin' over again 
And I'll have to get over you all over again 

I guess I could try hypnotherapy 
I gotta rewire this brain 
'Cause I can't even go on the internet 
Without even checking your name 

I tell myself, tell myself, tell myself, "Draw the line" 
And I do, I do 
But once in a while, I trip up, and I cross the line 
I think of you 

Two years, and just like that 
My head still takes me back 
Thought it was done 
But I guess it's never really over 
Oh, we were such a mess 
But wasn't it the best? 
Thought it was done 
But I guess it's never really over 

Just because it's over doesn't mean it's really over 
And if I think it over, maybe you'll be comin' over again 
And I'll have to get over you all over again 
Just because it's over doesn't mean it's really over 
And if I think it over, maybe you'll be comin' over again 
And I'll have to get over you all over again 

Thought we kissed goodbye 
Thought we meant this time was the last 
But I guess it's never really over 
Thought we drew the line 
Right through you and I 
Can't keep going back 
I guess it's never really over 

Two years, and just like that 
My head still takes me back 
Thought it was done 
But I guess it's never really over 

Just because it's over doesn't mean it's really over 
And if I think it over, maybe you'll be comin' over again 
And I'll have to get over you all over again 
And I'll have to get over you all over again 
Just because it's over doesn't mean it's really over 
And if I think it over, maybe you'll be comin' over again 
And I'll have to get over you all over again 
Over you all over again 

Thought we kissed goodbye 
Thought we meant this time was the last 
But I guess it's never really over 
Thought we drew the line 
Right through you and I 
Can't keep going back 
I guess it's never really over

Interpretation of Never Really Over

In “Never Really Over”, a female protagonist tells us how difficult it is for her to get over a former relationship. She is trying for two years to forget her boyfriend and to draw a line. The reason is that her boyfriend visits her from time to time, so that she remembers the past again and again: “And if I think it over, maybe you'll be comin' over again, and I'll have to get over you all over again”. The protagonist realizes: “Can't keep going back”. That contrasts with her previously quoted statement. She has not found a solution yet for her paradox situation. 

Although the lyrics is about helplessness and despair, the music and the video itself do not create this impression: The music is fast and energetic and the protagonist, presented by Katy Perry, is shown in an idyllic landscape. So you have the impression that the situation is not hopeless. Whether a new or returning to the former relationship: There will be progress.
