When I was seventeen (tell us about it Green)
There was a world to know about (check it out)
Everyday she'd call me (what'd she say?)
Is it over yet? Do you love me?

Overnite... and while your trouble's away
Under the stars up above... I'll build you another day
Close your eyes... I'll be home before it's light
And all the tears you cry... will dry in the dead of night

And now I'm in between (tell us about it Green)
It all became a mystery (check it out)
Everyday she calls me (what does she say)
Is it over yet? Do you believe them?

Overnite... and while your trouble's away
Under the stars up above... I'll build you another day
Close your eves... I'll be home before it's light
And all the fears you have... will die in the dead of night

Someday... maybe soon...
We could show them a way
I would love just to watch it falling
Oh my pretty one... show me a way

Overnite... I heard satellite say
There'll be a wind for the west... to blow all your dreams away
Close your eyes... and maybe before it's light
Oh all the hopes that you have... will die in the dead of night

Overnite... and while your trouble's away
Under the stars up above... I'll build you another day
Close your eves... I'll be home before it's light
And all the tears you cry... will dry in the dead of night

Overnite... and while your trouble's away
Under the stars up above... I'll build you another day
Close your eves... I'll be home before it's light
Oh all the hopes that you have... will die the dead of night
