Lyrics

lyrics for "Overlee"

It is the saddest day
When you find you're alone
Well, that's why I'm here with you
See, I got no place to go

Yeah, the truth is I feel safe here
The most comforting place I know
It's still the saddest day when you say
This is not my home

I wanna take you to Overlee
In a blue world, floating endlessly
Where there's no language and there's no country
I wanna take you to Overlee

Now I return to your place
Knocking, trying to get in
And your roommate opens the door and says
"Why are you back here again?"
I put my things down in the hall,
Quietly enter your room
You're sound asleep with the cats
As I climb back in bed with you

I wanna take you to Overlee
In a blue world, floating endlessly
Where there's no language and there's no country
I wanna take you to Overlee

And we could swim around and 'round, and 'round
And we could swim around and 'round, and 'round
And we could swim, and swim, until we drowned
And we could swim around and 'round, and 'round

I wanna take you to Overlee
Floating 'round, endlessly
No language and no country
Where I can hold you, tenderly
I wanna take you, Overlee
I wanna take you to Overlee

'Round and 'round and 'round ('round and 'round)
And we can swim around and 'round and 'round
And we could swim, and swim, until we drown
