Overnight

Overnight
Lyrics:

You can’t have everything you want
Death and money all at once
If I can only sing what you’d remember
You’d remember me when I was gone

Give me something true and real
Give me something I can feel
Take me back to when I was a child
When I first heard my favorite song
Take me back to when I was young and wild
When I could dream all day long

Overnight, you can’t wait till the morning light
‘Cause you want it all right now
Overnight, if you’re gonna do it, then do it right
‘Cause you want it all right now

Always looking for the light
But you can’t take it with you when you die
Always think you’re smarter than the teacher
And you never think you were wrong
If you’re holier than the preacher
Boy you know you’re not the only one

Overnight, you can’t wait till the morning light
‘Cause you want it all right now
Overnight, if you’re gonna do it, then do it right
‘Cause you want it all right now

Why won’t you go?
Why would you stay?
Every time I turn around
There’s another one of you in town

It’s not like they say
Its not like they do, no
Every time I come around
Somebody’s trying to steal my crown

Overnight, you can’t wait till the morning light
‘Cause you want it all right now
Overnight, if you’re gonna do it, then do it right
‘Cause you want it all right now

Overnight, if you’re gonna do it, then do it right
‘Cause you want it all right now
