Overnight

By: Alan Berger

A lot can happen overnight
Continue again and make it right

I could come over there
You could come over here
Will not be meeting in the middle
The middle disappeared

You may go to bed a loser
Dreaming of gone lovers
The worst FICA in the nation
And wake an overnight sensation

Sometimes I do not
Sleep so tight
One eye watches the other
The cigarette glow is too bright

The things I am trying to forget
Just renewed its memory course
Recalling in full force past regret

A lot can happen overnight
While you plane and deplane
Your coach seat flight

Many a time
Held at the gate
You wait too long to fly
As another cancelled
Dream goes bye bye
