Benjamin Booker - Overtime

English

Overtime

No more waking up with a "what-was-I-thinking"
Mahalia's singing how she got over
You could have it all if you just try harder
Make it to the end without going under
 
I've been here before
Though I don't like to say it, it's usual problem
When'd you become such a faithless man?
It's easy to forget that the recent wave of helpful confidence
Grew from the one you're leaving now
 
No more waking up with a "what-was-I-thinking"
(Bad days rule me now)
Mahalia's singing how she got over
(Someone turn that down)
You could have it all if you just try harder
(Please don't watch me now)
Make it to the end without going under
(i'm not ready now)
 
I believe you know
That you feel it on the night's you're all alone
That life's not some glossy love song
You have got to work for good things in this world
A good person's worth overtime
Overtime
Growing over time
 
No more waking up with a "what-was-I-thinking"
(Bad days rule me now)
Mahalia's singing how she got over
(Someone turn that down)
You could have it all if you just try harder
(harder harder)
Make it to the end without going under
