"Overemphasizing" as written by and Ian Thornley....
Once was a man a rage
All foreign tales onstage
It turns a page

All through this time, not grown
She'll go through life alone
Don't answer the phone

The time we spent
Oh, the time you lent
Oh, the less you gave
And I forgot to save

Not long ago, we moved
Still much was left to prove
I was removed

The love we made
Well I forgot to save
All the locks you gave
That I forgot to save

Once was a man a rage
All foreign tales on stage

    My InterpretationThe short and sweet story of a relationship that did not end well. The first and last lines, being the same, I believe wrap up the idea of this story Ian is telling.

    "Once was a man... a rage, All foreign tales onstage" - This line is him telling what most people have heard and know about this relationship. "Onstage" to say that it's in the spotlight for everyone to see.

    "It turns a page" - This is a fascinating metaphor to say "Now here is my interpretation because you haven't heard my side of the story yet."

    He then goes on to emphasize the point that this girl was "Overemphasizing" the story of this relationship and blew it out of proportion. He proves himself not to be "Man who was a rage" because in fact this girl drove HIM out of the house, in verse 2 he claims, "I was removed."
