Overnight oh, Overnight oh

Verse 1:
I wish the pain would go away
I wish they'd find a cure today
I asked the doctor what it means
He said "Things ain't as bad as what they seem."
My heart is working overtime to mend what's broke inside
And it's hard for me to see the light
Cause I'm stuck
At least that's what it feels like

I'm slower to heal
Slower to heal
Don't wanna feel the way I feel
(Don't wanna feel)
I wish I could kill this pain that I feel
(Right away)
But it don't happen that way, never

It's not gone happen overnight, overnight, overnight
I won't get better overnight, overnight, overnight
It's not gone happen overnight, overnight, overnight
I won't get better overnight, overnight, overnight
So I'm slower to heal

Verse 2:
It's like I'm in a traffic jam
(A traffic jam)
Being pulled out of quicksand
(Outta quicksand)
It's like a newly planted tree
I wish that you could find it in yourself to be patient with me

I'm slower to heal
Slower to heal
Don't wanna feel the way I feel
(Don't wanna feel)
I wish I could kill this pain that I feel
(Right away)
But it don't happen that way, never

It's not gone happen overnight, overnight, overnight
I won't get better overnight, overnight, overnight
It's not gone happen overnight, overnight, overnight
I won't get better overnight, overnight, overnight

I'm slower to heal
Slower to heal
Don't wanna feel the way I feel
(Don't wanna feel)
I wish I could kill this pain that I feel
(Right away)
But it don't happen that way, never

I'm slower to heal
Slower to heal
Don't wanna feel the way I feel
(Don't wanna feel)
I wish I could kill this pain that I feel
(Right away)
But it don't happen that way, never

It's not gone happen overnight, overnight, overnight
I won't get better overnight, overnight, overnight
It's not gone happen overnight, overnight, overnight
I won't get better overnight, overnight, overnight

It's not gone happen overnight, overnight, overnight
I won't get better overnight, overnight, overnight
It's not gone happen overnight, overnight, overnight
I won't get better overnight, overnight, overnight
So I'm slower to heal
