Overflow (The Mayfield Four)

The dial tone is all that sings It's raining hard inside and far away What's so new? This never-ending drama won't fade My gut's a coil and my only drain Will this never end? It's breaking heart, it's bruising head Why does the good go so bad? All the joy is fading fast The contradictions they are killing me This pretzel logic makes her hard to receive So fall out again and swallow me whole Every thing's changed from blowing kisses to throwing stones Night trades with day And let dawn begin to break Once again she knows me too well How to heal, how to help For a while I am saved by her smile And all the harm comes undone Just soon enough to stop the flood The overflow should her charm not hold It could drown me today Must the river run so high, my love You know your smile can Dam the river that I have of you
