I worry over situations Eu me preocupo com situações I know will be alright Que eu sei que se resolverão Perhaps it's just imagination Talvez seja só a minha imaginação Day after day it reappears Dia após dia reaparece Night after night my heartbeat Noite após noite a batida do meu coração shows the fear Demonstra o medo Ghosts appear and fade awa Fantasmas aparecem e somem Alone between the sheets Sozinho entre os lençoes Only brings exasperation Somente traz irritações It's time to walk the streets É hora de caminhar pelas ruas Smell the desperation Sentir o cheiro do desespero At least there's pretty lights Pelo menos existem luzes bonitas And though there's little variatios E embora haja pouca variação It nullifies the night From overkill Ela livra a noite do exagero Day after day it reappears Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear Ghosts appear and fade away Come back another day I can't get to sleep I think about the implications Of diving in too deep And possibly the complications Especially at night I worry over situations that I know will be alright It's just overkill Day after day it reappears Night after night my heartbeat, shows the fear Ghosts appear and fade away Ghosts appear and fade away Ghosts appear and fade away Dia após dia reaparece Noite após noite a batida do meu coração demonstra o medo Fantasmas aparecem e somem Volte outro dia Não consigo pegar no sono Eu penso nas insinuações Por mergulhar tão fundo E possivelmente as complicações Especialmente à noite Eu me preocupo com situações que Eu sei que se resolverão É somente exagero Dia após dia reaparece Noite após noite a batida do meu coração demonstra o medo Fantasmas aparecem e somem Fantasmas aparecem e somem Fantasmas aparecem e somem.
