Panic! At The Disco – The Overpass lyrics
[Intro]
Let me hear you say somethin'

[Verse 1]
Sorry to get sentimental tonight
(That perfume lingers in your hair)
It's just that everything reminds me of things
I thought I shouldn't have to see again
See, the thing is I'm so sorry to say
(You need me, don't you?)
Someone still loves you (still loves you)
Someone still loves you

[Chorus]
Meet me, meet me
At the overpass
, at the overpass
Sketchy girls and lipstick boys
(Sketchy girls and lipstick boys)
Troubled love and high speed noise
I know you wanna meet me, meet me
At the overpass, at the overpass
Sketchy girls and lipstick boys
(Sketchy girls and lipstick boys)
Troubled love and high speed noise
I know you wanna
Let me hear you say somethin'


[Verse 2]
I have a shirt that keeps your smell
(That perfume lingers in your hair)
You keep one too in parallel
(You keep my long black leather)

See the thing is I'm so sorry to say
(You need me, don't you?)
Someone still loves you (loves you)
Someone still loves you

[Bridge]
Tiny bottles of shit wine in a tin can that climbs
But I remember every time
Everything about you is perfect
Down to your blood type

But I remember every time

[Chorus]
Meet me, meet me
At the overpass, at the overpass
Sketchy girls and lipstick boys
(Sketchy girls and lipstick boys)
Troubled love and high speed noise
I know you wanna meet me, meet me
At the overpass, at the overpass
Sketchy girls and lipstick boys
(Sketchy girls and lipstick boys)
Troubled love and high speed noise
I know you wanna
Let me hear you say somethin'

    The Overpass is an upbeat song, which I think is to distract from the meaning and I have to confess that it does exactly that. Northern Downpour for example has a nostalgic feel and you know it even without the lyrics. Here many people ignore the meaning of this song, the upbeat rhythm distracts them. For a love song it is a lot more upbeat, Brendon normally writes much slower and calmer songs when about love, and maybe he's even trying to trick himself into believing its okay. It is obviously a love song, though it can't be about his wife Sarah. It isa out a former love, which here I believe is Ryan Ross. I think Ryan was his soulmate, and even if he's fallen in love with Sarah, he can't fall out of love with his other half. A part of him will always want him back, will always love him. Since he can't do anything about that, he is stuck just writing songs about his ex. Quite a sad song in my opinion, very sad.
