"Overcome" as written by Peter Zizzo and Thomas Mark Harmer Nichols....
Silence shattered like it's glass
My world was captured like a photograph
When I saw you
Eyes of oceans pulled me in

The rip tide was strong
And 'though I fought it for a second or two
You stole me with a glance and it was done
I was overcome by you...

Breathe me in and breathe me out
Crave and desire what I yearn for
Pray that I might feel the same
'cause every night and every day
I wait for you
Looking for someone I almost knew
Why do I run, overcome?

The Moments happen then they pass
But my obsession doesn't go that fast
Who are you and do I ever cross your mind?

Find me alone and kiss me softly as I wake to truth
My sleep is dead, my life has just begun

I am overcome by you...

Breathe me in and breathe me out
Crave and desire what I yearn for
Pray that I might feel the same
'cause every night and every day
I wait for you
Looking for someone I almost knew
Why do I run, overcome?

How could I come so close?
What if I could spin the world like Superman
And would the moment go?
Fast enough to fly me back to you again
I shoud have let it show
I would grab a hold and not let go

Oh, and kiss me softly as I wake to truth
My sleep is dead, my life has just begun

Breathe me in and breathe me out
Crave and desire what I yearn for
Pray that I might feel the same
'cause every night and every day
I wait for you
Looking for someone I almost knew
Why do I run, overcome?

    General Commentthis sounds like a vanessa carlton song with the piano.

    Excellent hook, though.

    General CommentIt's about liking someone but not saying anything, and then regretting not saying anything 'I should have let it show'. 'Looking for someone i almost knew' she could've gotten to know him, but everytime she could've said something, she didn't.
