"Over My Head" as written by Ryan O'connor, Seth James Johnson and Daniel James Stevens....
I can feel a fire starting
And I think it's lost control
I can feel her eyes burning through me
With a steady, steady hand
She'll try to take it all

Take cover
Oh, take cover
I hold my head as I hit the floor
No wonder, doubt she'll go under
She'll stop at nothing
Just to say that she wants more

I'm over my head
Much more than I've been
And I can't let her in
She's more than I need
Remember to breathe
Whenever she's surrounding me

She works so mysteriously
She's always testing me
Just to see if I will ever break down
Tear me apart, yeah
From seam to seam

Take cover
Oh, take cover
I hold my head as I hit the floor
No wonder, doubt she'll go under
She'll stop at nothing
Just to say that she wants more

I'm over my head
Much more than I've been
And I can't let her in
She's more than I need
Remember to breathe
Whenever she's surrounding me (x2)

Take cover
Oh, take cover
Take cover
Oh, take cover

I'm over my head
Much more than I've been
And I can't let her in
She's more than I need
Remember to breathe
Whenever she's surrounding me (x2)

    General CommentHow has no one commented on this yet?! this song is amazing, despite how repetitive it is XD

    i think its just about like a very controlling girlfriend and the guy/narrator realizes hes over his head.

    General CommentShe wants more from him than he can give. He feels like if he lets her in, she'll take everything away.
