I take these turns a bit too fast
Trying to leave you in my past
The CD skips our favorite songs
Our greatest hits just don't belong

I really love to hate this
Love, hate, hate, love
Relationships
Are over-rated
Over my dead body
Is how this will end
He said it's over
And I could go for
Another chance to do
This over again

(So this is it?)
After all we've been through
(We called it quits)
And now I'm about to
(I lost my grip)
Oh, the little I had left
You said it's over
And I could really go for
A cup of coffee and an overdose

Leave it all behind me
You'll see it when you finally find me
Comatose or pretty close
Cup of coffee and an overdose

I pop these pills like cracker jacks
And the prize, with glazed eyes
Is watching you react
When you're depressed you sleep too much
I'm not sure if I'm waking up

It's over-rated
Over my dead body
Is how this will end
You said it's over
And I could go for
Another chance to do this over again

(So this is it?)
After all we've been through
(We called it quits)
And now I'm about to
(I lost my grip)
Oh, the little I had left
You said it's over
And I could really go for
A cup of coffee and an overdose

Leave it all behind me
You'll see it when you finally find me
Comatose or pretty close
Cup of coffee and an overdose

He said it's over
And I could really go
For a cup of coffee
And an overdose
Leave it all behind me
You'll see it when you finally find me
Comatose or pretty close

I stood in line without you
I stood in line without you
I stood in line without you
And I don't tell you what it is
I thought about you
Well without you
Is everything I've got
I stood in line without you
I stood in line without you

    General Commenti think its about the girl who's boyfriend has just broken up with her

    and shes trying to be calm by saying she could use a cup of coffee

    but she is suicidal saying she needs the overdose

    and i get from "Leave it all behind me
    You'll see it
    When you finally find me
    Comatose or pretty close" that she wants to take the overdose so the guy that broke up with her regrets it and feels bad

    General Commenti think this song is about how she deels with her feelings after a break up or any other situation. like wanting to just sleep to get away from everything. i feel like that with the situation im in. just wanna take and overdose and wake up to find it all better. but then she says she needs a cup of coffee.. coffee doesnt let you sleep. i think she found that the overdose didnt work and it hurts to wake up the most because you find the pain didnt go away. waking up is like starting it all over. so she wants coffee to stay awake and sleep deprivation makes you feel like your in comotose cuz youre just to tired to feel. so thats her way of sleeping. i see it this way because thats what i found out for myself.

    Song Meaningit could be she's talking about an overdose in something elce .... stronger. cus she says it like a.... "cup of coffee and .... a peace of cake". and then there's the "over my dead body" bit and the Comatose bit an overdose in coffee could kill you bt u'd need about 100 cups and it would kill ur heart first not put u into a coma. just an idea.
