"Overload" as written by Johnny Lipsey, Keisha Buchanan, Cameron Mcvey, Siobhan Donaghy, Mutya Buena, Felix Howard and Paul Simms....
Strange fear I ain't felt for years,
The boy's coming and I'm close to tears, I can't let go of you now.
Imagination's playing round for free, in my world I take him out for tea,
Oh my god, can't say no.
Skipping school, go walk for air, I just had to get out of bed,
I'm on overload in my head.

Train comes, I don't know its destination,
It's a one-way ticket to a madman's situation.
Train comes, I don't know its destination,
It's a one-way ticket to a madman's situation.

Life is a dream, time does come true, and in my sleep I think of you,
Feather bed by myself.
Basically probability says that fate's come side with me,
It's been so long on my shelf.

Train comes, I don't know its destination,
It's a one-way ticket to a madman's situation.
Train comes, I don't know its destination,
It's a one-way ticket to a madman's situation.

The tension is incredible, boy I'm in charge,
You know how I feel for you.
Will you stop, or will you just keep going,
Please don't say no, no, no, no.

Train comes, I don't know its destination,
It's a one-way ticket to a madman's situation.
Train comes, I don't know its destination,
It's a one-way ticket to a madman's situation.

Train comes, I don't know its destination,
It's a one-way ticket to a madman's situation.
Train comes, I don't know its destination,
It's a one-way ticket to a madman's situation.

    General CommentI think they meant it in that way. But why should it be frowned upon? I think it's a really good lyric, as though she's finally sleeping with someone she's been obsessed with but knows she doesn't mean as much to and she's just dreading the end because then it will all be over. Meh, maybe, maybe not. That's the way I like to look at it.

    General CommentI think the "coming and I'm close to tears" is a sexual reference.
    I think the whole song is about a girl who is so much in love with this guy, and tries to get over him by sleeping around (or maybe with a boyfriend) thats why she's close to tears "i can't let go, of you now" - because she's still thinking of the guy she's in love with.

    The song talks about "imagination" and "dreams" because she's picturing a whole where they " take him out for tea" and spend time together.

    then she begs: "will you stop ... please don't say no" - because he's teasing her and knows she loves him,

    The real lyrics to the chorus is actually "train comes and I know it's destination" i think, which means: He comes into my head and i know what it means, it leads to heartbreak.

    General CommentPretty sure the whole song is about having sex, I think the second verse is chronologically the first verse as it's about not having had it in a while, and in the first verse she's finally getting it with the guy she's dreamed of. He's about to finish but she doesn't want him to end it, simple.

    MemoryI never thought this song was about sex. I thought it was about the pressure of being in love or liking someone to a point, but at the same point running away from it, i can' tput it in words. But maybe that's why when I Heard this song first time i was 10 and my english didn't let me catch that "the boy's coming" was meaning sex and not just a boy approaching. :DDD

    General CommentNo silly!

    They are singing about the second coming of Jesus the Christ when he returns! His a boy, then he will grow into a man to condemn white people for their evil ways and to heal gay's, weather gays will deviant into gay clubs or will they remain on the straight path.

    . . ."The tension is incredible, boy I'm in charge,
    You know how I feel for you.
    Will you stop, or will you just keep going,
    Please don't say no, no, no, no." . . .

    I love you sugababes!
