"Overload" as written by and Siobhan/buena Donaghy....
overload, oh what a match we are!
as we romance along
towards the firescape
open fire
forever in your arms
splendid time we have
doing what i dread
oh my lord
can i buy some time
i'm learning to dance
dum-ditty-dance
i'm dancing, ok?

overlord, lord of the underworld
full-of-wonder-girl
as we twist and twirl
hot and dry
high in my cloven heels
this is how real love feels
as we prance and die
oh my lord
such a fancy fire
as we dance
you sure can dance
dance dance
you i will never forget
i hope you'll remember me later
we're swimming in a puddle of sweat
i'm hot baby, don't burn your fingers
i'm tenderly served on your plate
the band must continue to play
so we can dance
i love to dance, baby dance with me
yeah, i can dance
to love is to dance
now dance me home

    General CommentFirst time I heard this one, I started crying. Seriously. It's one of the most beautiful song I've ever heard! Best one on Super Extra Gravity.

    General CommentI agree with gwirleybee. Simply beautiful. I'd hate to dissect this song, but I'll take a stab at it nonetheless: You know when you meet a person you just click with... You've got all these things in common, just BLAMO: This is might be THE ONE (hence: "Overload, Oh what a match we are!" 'cause, like, your mind is blown... how can this person even be alive let alone somehow found their way to you? Freakin' OVERLOAD). And then she (he) says something along the lines of "By the way, I love swingdancing." And you for what ever reason, respond with "Oh my god! Me too!" Knowing full well that you've made numerous half-hearted attempts at learning some fancy swing move and failed. So there you are, in your studio apartment, stepping on her maryjanes, trying to be all devanair (sp?) with your heartbeat competing with the music. "God, I suck at this but whatever, she (he) is in my arms," you think to yourself ("Splendid time we have doing what I dread"). A five minute waltz spans an eternity and in that time you've found a rhythm with this person. (I'm learning to dance). SOOO... you're getting in the groove of things and your mind just shuts off... no thinking, just dancing. The two of you are in the moment... (moment...moment....MOMENT...moment... :)

    ...anywho there's more to it but I'll just leave it at that. I could be wrong. It could be about dancing with the devil. Er, I don't know. What do you think?
