"Overflow" lyrics - THE MAYFIELD FOUR

(Craig Johnson / Myles Kennedy / Zia Uddin)

The dial tone is all that sings
It's raining hard inside and far away
What's so new
This never-ending drama won't fade
My guts are coil and my only drain

Will this ever end
It's breaking heart
It's bruising head
Why does the good go so bad
All the joy is fading fast

The contradictions
They are killing me
This pretzel logic
Makes her hard to receive
So fall out again
And swallow me whole
Everythings changed
From blowing kisses
And throwing stones

Night trade with day
And let dawn begin to break
Once again she knows me to well
How to heal how to help

For awhile I am saved by her smile
And all the harm comes undone
Just soon enough to stop the flood
The overflow
Should her charm not hold
It could drown me today
Must the river run so high my love

You know your smile can
Dam the river that
I have of... you
