"Overnight" by Amy Grant


This is a new song by Amy Grant, from her new "Somewhere down the Road" CD,  that we have been listening to a lot lately. I like this song because it seems to speak to me about mothering, and many other situations in life as well. I want so many things to happen easily, to want to use the "easy button" instead of going through the work, pain (possibly) and trials of teaching and learning something day by day. It would be so much easier to resign, give up, go elsewhere sometimes, but I believe God wants us to stay, learn to believe and trust in Him, and He will work in us. Some things just take time. He wants us to be patient and persevere.  I hope you enjoy this song too!

"So, you've handed in your resignation,
Contemplating why nothing turns out right.
A little fed up with all the disappointments,
So what's the point in wasting any time?

It's only temporary, 
So what's your hurry?
No need to worry,
Don't you know that...

CHORUS:
If it all just happened overnight,
You wouldn't know how much it means
Yeah, If it all just happened overnight,
You would never learn to believe,
What you cannot see,
Oh, What you cannot see.

I feel like my pace is at a standstill.
Do I wait till it falls into my hands?
A long highway ahead,
Getting started,
Steady hearted is what I think I am.

There's something to be said,
For experience,
Who knows what's ahead,
Keep on going...

CHORUS
If it all just happened overnight,
You wouldn't know how much it means
If it all just happened overnight,
You would never learn to believe
What you cannot see,
Oh, What you cannot see...

(Take it a day, a day at a time)
One foot in front of the other,
(Take it a day, a day at a time)
No need to hurry, hurry.
(Take it a day, a day at a time)
It won't happen overnight
It won't happen overnight

Have a little faith,
(Have a little faith)
Must appreciate,
(Must appreciate)
Every single day,
Don't give up, no.
(repeat)
CHORUS
If it all just happened overnight,
You wouldn't know how much it means
Yeah
If it all just happened overnight,
You would never learn to believe
What you cannot see
If it all just happened overnight,
You wouldn't know how much it means
If it all just happened overnight,
You would never learn to believe
What you cannot see.

Have a little faith,
(Have a little faith)
Must appreciate,
(Must appreciate)
Every single day,
Don't give up, no.
(repeat)
