George Strait - Overnight Success Lyrics




If it was in your mind to really cut me down.
If it was in your plan to walk me in the ground.
You left with him last night and daylight told the rest.
And if you planned on hurtin' me, you're an overnight success.

I couldn't blame someone who'd steal your love away,
Because I know what I've lost and all he's gained.
Sweetheart last night I know he got the very best.
And if you planned on hurtin' me, you're an overnight success.

Can you handle all you've won from breakin' my pride?
Will he stay with you and help you spend all the tears I've cried?
Sweetheart I love you so and wish you happiness.
And if you planned on hurtin' me, you're an overnight success.
