Send me to bed
My head's drowning out
The thick and blurry sounds
Of horses on the highway
The days are running down
And I'm drowning out
This overwhelming sad

Send me to bed
And tamp out the lamp
In the dark the colors fade
To shades of grey and black
But the city's fireflies
Wash the bedroom with light
Like an overwhelming sad

I must be drowning out

The roar of the engines
As they escape into night
The stillness unravels
The long lost strands of our lives
They drift out the window
They drift out to sea; and I fall asleep
To an overwhelming sad

    General CommentYea, those lyrics are sort of wrong. Here some better lyrics straight from The Good Life site.


    Send me to bed. My head's drowning out
    the thick and blurry sounds of horses on the highway.
    The days are running down and I'm drowning out-
    this overwhelming sad.
    Send me to bed, and tamp out the lamp.
    In the dark the colors fade to shades of grey and black.
    But the city's fireflies wash the bedroom with light-
    like an overwhelming sad.
    I must be drowning out...
    the roar of the engines as they escape into night.
    The stillness unravels...
    the long lost strands of our lives.
    They drift out the window,
    they drift out to sea; and I fall asleep.
    To an overwhelming sad.

    General Commentsee never say forever, i think this IS their best song. when i first heard this song, i was completely amazed and i had to find out who it was by. Since then ive heard every other album and every other song and havent found a single good song except for this, the rest were all just OK. i mean, i love this genre, i just don't think this band is great persay excluding this song
