Overnight Sensation
lily rose Lyrics


Lookin' at the faces starin' back at me
Stage lights are blindin', they're remindin' me
Of playin' on my bedroom floor
Mama's back against the door
Sayin', "Baby, won't you sing me one more song"

Drivin' and my song comes on the radio
It brings me back to days when I didn't know
If anybody'd even show
And was it worth the miles I drove?
'Cause no one knows my name in Toccoa

No one knows quite how this thing goes
There's no right way to chase it
After all the booze and tears and patience
I'm an overnight sensation
Thirteen years in the makin'

Don't wonder anymore if my dad's proud of me
'Cause now he's standin' side of stage singin' my melodies
I remember him askin' me
"Why're you wastin' your degree
For a couple part-time jobs and a dream?"

No one knows quite how this thing goes
There's no right way to chase it
After all the booze and tears and patience
I'm an overnight sensation
Thirteen years in the makin'

There's no map for this damn promised land
No blueprint, there's no master plan
And no way of knowin' if, or how, or when

Sometimes I miss the days when I was seventeen
Wasn't worried about the money or singin' out of key
But I set my course for the unknown
Worked my fingers to the bone
Hurt like hell goin' through it then
Lookin' back I'd do it all again

No one knows quite how this thing goes
There's no right way to chase it
After all the booze and tears and patience
I'm an overnight sensation

I'm an overnight sensation
Thirteen years in the makin'
