"Over-Rated" as written by Greg Johnston, Jeen N O'brien ...
[Verse 1]
You think it's cool, just cause they're telling you
You gotta have it, then you'll never miss it at all
You need the thrill, just cause it's killing you
You're so close, so don't take it too far

[Chorus:]
Where there's smoke you'll find a mirror
It's over-rated
I've watched it fade
So please don't give in
Don't forget what you believe in
It's over-rated
It's not worth chasing
Don't you know that
You'll love to love and then you'll hate it

[Verse 2]
Love and lost and everything between
It's perfect, it's poison that made me fall
You want it bad
Don't want it to skip away
It's too fast
It's gonna drag you down

[Chorus:]
Where there's smoke you'll find a mirror
It's over-rated
I've watched it fade
So please don't give in
Don't forget what you believe in
It's over-rated
It's not worth chasing
Don't you know that
You'll love to love and then you'll hate it

[Bridge:]
Coming close now, not any clearer
With every breath you're going deeper
But I will pull you back to me

It's over-rated
It's not worth chasing
Don't you know that
You'll love to love and then you'll hate it

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh..

It's over-rated
And it's over-rated
You learn to love and then you'll hate it
You learn to love and then you'll hate it
It's over-rated

    General CommentDon't follow the crowd. Don't follow all the trends. Be your own person. Most of the trends and being in the 'in-crowd' is over-rated.

    General Commenti think it's about how people think love is just absolutely amazing, where it'll suddenly make everything make sense.
    and she's saying, love isn't all it's cracked up to be. it's a rush at first, but then it hurts and you'll just want to stop ('you'll love to love and then you'll hate it'). she says that love is overrated, so don't give into it because it comes and goes ('i've watched it fade, so please don't give in').
