"Over Thinking" as written by and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
I was thinking
Over thinking
Cause there's just too many scenarios
To analyze
Look in my eyes
Cause you're my dream please come true

I was thinking
Over thinking
About exactly how I'm not exactly him
I'll break my heart in two
More times than you could ever do
Cause you're my dream please come true

Cause I think way too much
On a one track mind
And you're so out of touch
Cause I'm so far behind

I can't deny this anymore, the facts ignored all done before
And if there's one in this world,
You let me know you're not that girl

I was sinking
Lower, sinking
Cause I lost the things I held on to
They let me think a thought
A thought that I would know was not
Of seeing my dream come true

I was thinking
Over thinking
About how far I had let this go
One more guy/girl chiché
I know now you're just in the way
Of me and my dream come true

Cause I think way too much
On a one track mind
And you're so out of touch
Cause I'm so far behind
I'm trying to make sense
Out of all of this
While your fading scent
Just slips through my grip

I can't deny this anymore, the facts ignored all done before
And if there's one in this world,
You let me know you're not that girl

Don't touch the positive with the negative end
Don't touch the positive with the negative end
Cause after all of the sparks you're left alone in the dark
Cause after all of the sparks you're left alone in the dark

And while I'm able, I think I'll label
Experience with you as a mistake
And while I'm at it, I'll say I've had it
Experience with you is a mistake

Cause I think way too much
On a one track mind
And you're so out of touch
Cause I'm so far behind
I'm trying to make sense
Out of all of this
While your fading scent
Just slips through my grip

I was thinking
Over thinking
Cause there's just too many scenarios
To think about
To figure out
If you're my dream please come true

    General Commenthmm... I think the 'don't touch thepositive with the negative end cause after the sparks you're just alone in the dark' is about girls and boys. Because after the sparks of a relationship is over... thereis nothing really.

    General CommentIts about him thinking so much about this girl, and in the end he realizes he was just wasting his time. I love this song, easy to relate to..well except that I'm a girl

    General CommentI think its about a girl he likes that isn't a christian. He keeps going through things in his mind and re-analyzing them over and over trhying to justify being able to date her. I think he's referring to the verse about being unequally yolked when he mentions "don't touch teh positive.... left alone inthe dark" because although you might get along well at first, eventually such a relationship will simply make you empty... anyway, that's what i think.. it kinda hit me once driving home.

    General Commentperhaps he can't have her because she's not completely over her ex or she wants someone else...? "i was thinking, over thinknig, about exactly how i'm not exactly him"

    General CommentDoes anybody think that this song is about sex? It sounds like Matt is talking about saving oneself for his future mate, his "dream come true," and how premarital sex only has negative consequences.

    General Commentmaybe it's about a non Christian girl... thats my theory anyway,

    and she doesn't like him asmore than a friend anyway, but he keeps liking her... this song made me cryt he first time i heard it cause one of my guy friends liked me and i felt so bad cause i knew this was the kind of thing going thru his mind...

    General CommentThis song is just about related to any scenerio between a guy and a girl, but I agree with the sex idea "cause I lost the things I held on too" like his values, and then he's thinking "about how far [he] had let this go" and then he's saying that "after all the sparks you're left alone in the dark" but like I said, this song is easily related to tons of things
