Didn't See It Coming

Album: Overnight (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This was the final song written for Parachute's third album, Overnight. It was inspired by a friend of the band who landed an acting job without realizing it was an "adult" feature.
  • Will Anderson's spoken rap-like verses were just improvised dummy lyrics done for the demo until the band decided to keep them in the final mix. Anderson told Artist Direct: "I originally had the spoken word verses in there as a placeholder until I could come up with the melody. Once we got in the studio though, everyone liked them so much that we decided to keep them in there."
