"Counting Stars"

[Chorus]

Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep

Dreaming about the things that we could be

But baby, I've been, I've been prayin' hard

Said no more counting dollars

We'll be counting stars

Yeah, we'll be counting stars

[Verse 1]

I see this life

Like a swinging vine

Swing my heart across the line

In my face is flashing signs

Seek it out and ye shall find

Old, but I'm not that old

Young, but I'm not that bold

And I don't think the world is sold

I'm just doing what we're told

I feel something so right

Doing the wrong thing

And I feel something so wrong

Doing the right thing

I could lie, couldn’t lie, couldn't lie

Everything that kills me makes me feel alive

[Chorus]

Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep (hey!)

Dreaming about the things that we could be

But baby, I been, I been prayin' hard (hey!)

Said no more counting dollars

We'll be counting stars

Lately I've been, I,ve been losing sleep (hey!)

Dreaming about the things that we could be

But baby, I,ve been, I've been prayin' hard (hey!)

Said no more counting dollars

We'll be, we'll be counting stars

[Verse 2]

I feel this love

And I feel it burn

Down this river every turn

Hope is our four letter word

Make that money

Watch it burn

Old, but I'm not that old

Young, but I'm not that bold

And I don't think the world is sold

On just doing what we're told

I feel something so wrong

Doing the right thing

I couldn't lie, couldn’t lie, couldn't lie

Everything that drowns me makes me wanna fly

[Chorus]

Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep (hey!)

Dreaming about the things that we could be

But baby, I've been, I've been prayin' hard

Said no more counting dollars

We'll be counting stars

Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep (hey!)

Dreaming about the things that we could be

But baby, I've been, I've been prayin' hard (hey!)

Said no more counting dollars

We'll be, we'll be counting stars

Oh, oh, oh, oh

[Bridge 4x:]

Take that money

Watch it burn

Sing in the river

The lessons I learned

Everything that kills me...

Makes me feel alive

[Chorus]

Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep (hey!)

Dreaming about the things that we could be

But baby, I've been, I've been prayin' hard (hey!)

Said no more counting dollars

We'll be counting stars

Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep

Dreaming about the things that we could be

But baby, I've been, I've been prayin' hard

Said no more counting dollars

We'll be, we'll be counting stars

[Outro 4x:]

Take that money

Watch it burn

Sing in the river

The lessons I learned
