"Overjoyed" as written by and Even Johansen....
I'm overjoyed and in the sun, the second time this year
I'm on a plane at thirty thousand feet, the only way from here is down
And that's ok with me
Cause I'm overjoyed and ready for the fall

It's no surprise that I've been forced to learn that bliss comes at a price
And here I am still mining gold from the soul I've sold like a whore
The finger of blame is pointing at me
Cause I lit that flame and now it's burning me
But I'm overjoyed and it's no surprise that I'm ready for the fall

    General Commentsimple and beautiful. this song is about reaching that apex of joy (here the speaker compares it literally to being on a plane at 30 000 feet) and knowing that things can only go downhill from there. but it doesn't matter, because the feeling at that moment is enough.
