It is the saddest day
When ya 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 that 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 [in the blue]
And we could swim around and round and round [in the blue]
And we could swim and swim until we drown [in the blue]
We could swim [we could swim] around and round and round

I wanna take you to Overlee [Overlee]
Floating 'round endlessly [endlessly]
No language and no country [Overlee]
Where I could hold you tenderly [tenderly]
I would take you over me [over me]
I wanna take you to Overlee

Round and round and round [round and round]

Where we could swim around and round and round
And we could swim and swim until we drown
