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
