Overnight Sensation

Overnight Sensation

These two fingers have picked
the strings of this guitar.
I watched and learned as others
turned out to be superstars.
Now I can pay my bills and pay
cash for a brand new car
because I’m an overnight sensation
that’s been 20 years in the making.

With every nail I pounded I
knew someday I would go far,
along with other odd jobs like
being a bouncer for a bar.
I worked real hard but I had
dreams growing in my heart
and now I’m an overnight sensation
that’s been 20 years in the making.

I’ve played and sung at places I
myself would never be seen,
and all that mattered was the
color of cash to be green.
I’d stay up late and take extra
showers just to be clean,
so now I’m an overnight sensation
that’s been 20 years in the making.

(breakstrain)
Now I know what’s on the other side,
taking a trip on this rainbow ride
and I can have some peace of mind
doing things what I really like,
singing and playing in front of a crowd,
and it’s okay if the music is loud
or if the fans want to scream and shout
because I’m an overnight sensation
that’s been 20 years in the making.

(repeat verses)
