Nodding back to some of their earliest hits like “I Run to You,” Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood dial up the drama in “What If I Never Get Over You.” Produced by Dann Huff and written by Sam Ellis, Jon Green, Ryan Hurd and Laura Veltz, the song imagines two people and the open wounds that prevent them from ever fully moving on.

 

[Verse 1: Charles Kelly]
It’s supposed to hurt, it’s a broken heart
But to movin’ on is the hardest part
It comes in waves, the letting go
But the memory fades, everybody knows
Everybody knows

[Chorus: Charles Kelly & Hillary Scott]
What if I’m tryin’, but then I close my eyes
And then I’m right back, lost in that last goodbye?
And what if time doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do?
What if I never get over you?

 

[Verse 2: Hillary Scott & Charles Kelly]
Maybe months go by, maybe years from now
And I meet someone and it’s workin’ out
Every now and then, he can see right through
‘Cause when I look at him
Yeah, all I see is you

[Chorus: Charles Kelly & Hillary Scott]
What if I’m tryin’, but then I close my eyes
And then I’m right back, lost in that last goodbye?
And what if time doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do?
What if I never get over you?

[Bridge: Charles Kelly, Hillary Scott & Both]
Ooh yeah
What if I never get over?
What if I never get closure?
What if I never get back all the wasted words I told ya?
What if It never gets better?
What if this lasts forever and ever and ever?

 

[Chorus: Charles Kelly & Hillary Scott, Hillary Scott & Charles Kelly]
I’m tryin’, but then I close my eyes
And then I’m right back, lost in that last goodbye
And what if time doesn’t do what it’s supposed to do?
What if I never get over you?
What if I gave you (What if I gave you) everything I got?
What if your love was my one and only shot?
What if I end up with nothing to compare it to
What if I never get over? Oh, if I never get over
What if I never get over you?

[Outro: Hillary Scott, Charles Kelly & Both]
What if I never get over you?
Oh, what if I never get over?
Over you
