overkill lyrics – colin hay

overkill

i can’t get to sleep
i think about the implications
of diving in too deep
and possibly the complications

especially at night
i worry over situations
i know we’ll be alright
perhaps it’s just imagination

day after day it reappears
night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
ghosts appear and fade away
come back another day

alone between the sheets
only brings exasperation
it’s time to walk the streets
smell the desperation

at least there’s pretty lights
and though there’s little variation
it nullifies the night from overkill

day after day it reappears
night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
ghosts appear and fade away
come back another day

i can’t get to sleep
i think about the implications
of diving in too deep
and possibly the complications

especially at night
i worry over situations that
i know will be alright
it’s just overkill

day after day it reappears
night after night my heartbeat shows the fear
ghosts appear and fade away
ghosts appear and fade away
ghosts appear and fade away
