"Overboard" as written by Olli Tukiainen, Marko Saaresto and Markus / Kaarlonen....
I see you crying and it rains
Washing away the bad days
Washing away the pain loss brings
And then you smile though it aches
'Cause you don't believe in mistakes
Just that we made a mess of things

When the deal that you made with love
Is just a one-way street
A one-way street
You feel you'll go overboard
'Cause you're incomplete
Incomplete.

You're not afraid to rely on any way
You can try to learn to make some sense of things
And the way you say we'll get by
With a little laugh we can fly
You know the measure of hope that brings

When the deal that you made with love
Is just a one-way street
A one-way street
You feel you'll go overboard
'Cause you're incomplete
Incomplete.

I hear you laughing like a child
Instead of choking all riled
Instead of staring at shortcomings
Just like the rain when you cried
Washed all the stains of false pride
You'll learn to make the best of things

Have a little more of not enough
More of what is less
But isn't love
Little of same you're dreaming of
That's enough
That's enough

When the deal that you made with love
Is just a one-way street
A one-way street
You feel you'll go overboard
'Cause you're incomplete
Incomplete.

    General CommentTo me, it's about one person not taking a relationship/vows as seriously as the other one. it's about a relationship that has gone bad and one of them breaks away from their promise to each other leaving the other one devastated.

    General CommentTo me, It sounds like one person in the relationship isn't truly in love. They wish to have that feeling so bad that they pretend its real. but it falls short of expectations, and they want more, leaving them feeling more empty inside than anything close to love.
