John Hiatt - Overnight Story

John Hiatt
They took enough of my mind
To make a calculator
Addin' up the figures, they'll find
That love's a dumbwaiter

Waitin' for the dream to fade
Right into you hit parade
Maybe I've made that long black list
But I was born when we first kissed

CHORUS:
Not another overnight story
No overnight success
We've hung around too long for gloryIs it too late for happiness?
Yesterday is over now
And we've come too far to bow

Here comes Swifty, they're off
To chase another headline
But all the news gets soft
Before it makes the deadline

The morning paper hits my door
But I don't read it any more
Yes I know what went on last night
You made your coffin before daylight
