"Something Coming Over" as written by and Peter Zizzo Marc Andrew Roberge....
Who's that with his arm around you?
He making eyes at you that way
He looks in love
He looks familiar
Damn it's me
Never thought I'd see that day
It's like I came to sleep and there was darkness
Well I'm holding the daylight by your voice
Not that I have any choice

Something coming over me
I know it's you
Someone that I used to be
But he is through
Know that it's forever and it's overdue
Something coming over me
I know it's you

And now we're talking about our future
Oh and our futures wide open
Cause your love is the best place I've ever been
It was you to the rescue
And I mention that I'd never felt like this before
I'm powerless to fight it anymore

Something coming over me
I know it's you
Someone that I used to be
But he is through
Know that it's forever and it's overdue
Something coming over me
I know it's you

Used to watch this game from the sidelines
Now it's time to get on in and play
You've been waiting there for me for my whole life
Now it's all you
Now it's all you

Something coming over me
I know it's you
Someone that I used to be
But he is through
Know that it's forever and it's overdue
Something coming over me
I know it's you
I know
I know it's you baby
I know it's you

    General CommentI acutally think this is about a guy who finally met the girl that changes him and "wakes him up" ("Used to watch this game from the sidelines, now it's time to get on in and play"). He doesn't recognize himself - hence "Who's that with his arm around you? He's making eyes at you that way, he looks in love, he looks familiar - Damn, that's me."

    He is saying that who he used to be is gone now because he met her and he knows now what everyone was talking about...

    General CommentI think this song has a pretty simple meaning, but it has a very powerful impact.

    It is clear, that the guy didn't ever think relationships were for him. He just used to watch eveyone else fall in love.

    He finally finds the right girl that makes him perfectly happy and he doesn't need to sit on the sidelines anymore because her love is the best place he's every been.

    This is a great song, very underrated on their album.
