"Over My Shoulder" as written by and Michael Holbrook Penniman....
Over my shoulder, running away
Feels like I'm falling, losing my day

Cold and dry
Cold and dry

Fog out my daylight, torture my night
Feels like I'm falling far out of sight

Cold, drunk
Tired, lost

Over my shoulder, running away
Feels like I'm falling, losing my way

Cold, dry
Cold and dry

Fog out my daylight, torture my night
Feels like I'm falling far out of sight

Cold, drunk
Cold and drunk

    General CommentI bet that most people dont know that this song is actually on the album. Listening to this song is like being hipnotized gently in to a state of unconsciousness. Its mesmerising when your in the mood.

    General CommentJust bought the album. This song is the first in a good whil eto blow me away. As good as anything produced by Radiohead. A very nice balance to this happy happy bouncy album.

    What does it mean ? its pretty open - and its probably meant to be self-reflective. Its not about the song - its about you. For me - probably the greatest choon Mika will ever deliver.
