Overjoyed Lyrics

Over time, I've been building my castle of love
Just for two, though you never knew you were my reason
I've gone much too far for you now to say
That I've got to throw my castle away

Over dreams, I have picked out a perfect come...

    My interpretation of Overjoyed is that one person is "overjoyed" to have found their true love while the other person is not so sure. He is pleading for her to feel the same way about him that he feels about her.

    This song reminds me of the intriguing story of Edward Leedskalnin, who built and re-built mysterious Coral Castle in Homestead, Florida.
    Leedskalnin was a Latvian immigrant who constructed the mystical site in response to being spurned in a love quest early in his life. "Over time I've been building my castle of love..." --- those lyrics sound very similar to what Leedskalnin was try to accomplish in building the enigmatic structure.

    The best heartbreak song ever!
    But we must trust God for everything...

    To me its clear that this man had plans for the love he found and now the plans are ruined.

    -the castle of love has to be thrown away.
    -the sandman has to come back another day.
    Yet he has searched to discover...
    -the love he sought could never be mine (his)

    It is God talking to us, expressing His utmost love for his ultimate creation. God so much desires a personal relationship with us. He's waiting for us to come to Him.

    I think it’s about someone’s finding their true love which at first the person was not so sure whether it’s being reciprocated or not. But in the end, the person is feeling overjoyed because the other person is actually feeling the same thing. Or the meaning is pretty easy to get:
    its about someone with dreams of finding their true love and they actually find that love and is pleading for that one you love to have those same "overjoyed" feelings towards you Or When you are your soulmate's soulmate. That 1 in a...........-

    I believe the song to represent someone who fell in love with a person who was not ready to love him in return. He was initially overjoyed, and over loved that person, and now he is over loving her with the belief that there is a true love that still exist if given a chance. Wonderful lyrics and tune...

    My interpretation? I don't think this song needs interpretation it's all there in the lyrics and the way he sings it. He's overjoyed with the love he feels for this person and is sharing his love for them in this song.
