Over my head

Ray Davies, released on Other People's Lives (solo) © Davray Music Ltd. 2006

.

Wakin' up, feeling rough

Totally stressed

Every day is a day at a time

Step by step

Hit a wall, took a fall

To a new depth

Count to ten, focus then

Take a deep breath

.

In a world that is close to breakin'

I thought that you were my friend

In a world that is full of hatin'

And about to descend

I just smile and pretend

.

I'm a million miles away from it all

And let it go right over my head

Let 'em chase and the winner take all

And let it go right over my head

Over my head, yeah

Over my head

Over my head

.

Everywhere, everyone

Questioning me

Are you ill? Are you well?

Do you like being free?

.

Didn't know you were close to breaking

So you thought it should end

Left it all for a new location

So you could start up again

So keep keep smilin' till then

.

Right now I want some peace of mind

So let it go right over my head

Just want to give myself a little more time

And every single word that you said

Went over my head, yeah

Over my head

Over my head

.

Little girl I was so mistaken

Thought that you were my friend

In a world that is full of hatin'

I'm about to descend

Didn't know you were close to breakin'

So you thought it should end

Left it all for a new location

So you could start up again

So keep smilin' till then

.

I'm a million miles away from it all

And let it go right over my head

Let 'em chase and the winner take all

And let it go right over my head

Right now I want some peace of mind

So let it go right over my head

Just want to give myself a little more time

And every single word that you said

Went over my head, yeah

Over my head

Over my head

.

Close the door, let me please

Get to my bed

I wanna take stock, see my life

In perspective

Tomorrow I'll be back in the race, till then

Live and let live

So let all the anger pass me by

Over my head

Over my head

Over my head

.
