Colin Hay – Overkill lyrics
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 will 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


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
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

    Day after day we drift through life looking the one thing which will fulfill our innermost desires and aspirations whether it be love or marriage; job and career or what have you. The mistakes we make along the way bring to us a true meaning of caution when the hurts of the past surface. The ghosts appear - your mind reels and continues through the night. We second guess the things we do when there so much at stake. This life is lived once and only once. Oh well it's just overkill.
