Gladys Knight – Overnight Success lyrics

The time has come to take a look around us
See once again if we are living happily
'Cause almost everything is changing
Things are seldom what they seem

So if we could be honest
We could say what we mean
You look at me and you think it's been so easy
Things that you want, they should have been here yesterday

Well, that is not the way it happened
I worked hard for my respect
Believed what I was feeling
And try not to expect

Overnight success, stars are on the rise
These are ever changing times
Well, some will last and some will burn out too fast
I stood in it's light, overnight success
I know doesn't happen overnight

Well, the world is still a circle
What goes around, someday will come around again
So just treat every person fairly as you start among that cloud
'Cause everything will happen in it's own special time

Overnight success, stars are on the rise
These are ever changing times
Well, some will last and some will burn out too fast
I stood in it's light, overnight success
I know doesn't happen overnight

Well, the world will be a circle
What goes around someday will come around again
So just treat every person fairly

Reecho everyone's respect
Just believe in what you're doing
And try not to expect

Overnight success, stars are on the rise
These are ever changing times
Well, some will last and some will burn out too fast
I stood in it's light, overnight success
I know doesn't happen overnight

    In today's times so many people are looking for instant success: it seems as though the microwave effect has taken place in the mind. well it really doesn't happen overnight there's a lot of hard work and preparation that goes into anything that is WORTH anything. There WILL be difficulties and only those who are able to withstand obstacles and move past them will succeed. If the expectation is "things will go smoothly", then it's a false expectation at best. However, if you really enjoy what you doing, the challenges that will present themselves will only make you stronger, wiser and more resilent. Learn to keep the faith, believe in yourself. and keep reaching for the stars for your success lies not in the sky: but WITHIN you. REMEMBER the old adagethat says, "smooth water does not make a good sailor." Trust the process. Don't worry about how it looks on the outside, the strength is growing on the inside. The inner voice is always speaking, LISTEN! The birth of a child like "success" is the aftermath of much discomfort.
    I speak to me as I speak to you. It is a reminder for me too. It ALL begins in the MIND!!!
