  • Overnight I walk these midnight streets alone
    All the lights they try to pull me in
    Oh and I should be sleeping
    Oh but I can't close my eyes anymore
    So wide awake again

    And everybody says that I should just forget
    The hardest part is over with
    But it's so dark and I can't see the light
    There will never be a heart that I could break
    That I could find to take your place
    There's nothing I can do

    I can't get over you overnight
    I can't get over you overnight
    I should be sleeping, overnight

    I watch the strangers pass me by
    Every time their face looks just like you
    Oh and I still remember you in my arms
    When I would hold you
    Back when the sun would always rise too soon

    And everybody says that I should just forget
    The hardest part is over with
    But it's so dark and I can't see the light
    And there will never be a heart that I could break
    That I could find to take your place
    There's nothing I can do
    I can't get over you, overnight
    I can't get over you, overnight
    I should be sleeping, overnight
    I can't get over you, overnight
    I should be sleeping, overnight

    I should be sleeping
    I should be sleeping
    I should be sleeping
    I should be sleeping
    I should be sleeping
    I should be sleeping
    I should be sleeping
    I should be sleeping
    everybody says that I should just forget
    The hardest part is over with
    It's so dark and I can't see the light
    And there will never be a heart that I could break
    That I could find to take your place
    There's nothing I can do
    I can't get over you, overnight
    I can't get over you, overnight
    I should be sleeping, overnight
    I can't get over you, overnight
    I should be sleeping, overnight
    I can't get over you, overnight
    I should be sleeping, overnight
