It is the saddest day
When ya find you're alone
Well, that's why I'm here with you
See, I got no place to go
Yeah, the truth is I feel safe here
The most comforting place that I know
It's still the saddest day
When you say this is not my home
I want to take you to Overlee
In a blue world, floating endlessly
Where there's no language, and there's no country
I want to take you to Overlee
Now, I return to your place
Knocking, trying to get in
And your roommate opens the door
And says, "Why are you back here again?"
I put my things down in the hall
Quietly enter your room
You're sound asleep with the cats
As I climb back in bed with you
I want to take you to Overlee
In a blue world, floating endlessly
Where there's no language, and there's no country
I want to take you to Overlee
And we could swim around, and 'round, and 'round (In the blue)
And we could swim around, and 'round, and 'round (In the blue)
And we could swim around, and 'round, and 'round (In the blue)
We could swim (We could swim) around, and 'round, and 'round
I want to take you to Overlee (Overlee)
Floating 'round endlessly (endlessly)
No language and no country (Overlee)
Where I could hold you tenderly (tenderly)
I would take you over me (over me)
I want to take you to Overlee
'Round, and 'round, and 'round ('round, and 'round)
'Round, and 'round, and 'round ('round, and 'round)
'Round, and 'round, and 'round ('round, and 'round)
'Round, and 'round, and 'round ('round, and 'round)
'Round, and 'round, and 'round ('round, and 'round)
'Round, and 'round, and 'round ('round, and 'round)
Where we could swim around, and 'round, and 'round
And we could swim, and swim until we drowned
