lyrics

Can’t seem to find the right words to say to you.
I wanna scream, but I know it will never do.
I’m burning up; should’ve never struck that match,
And now I’m stuck in a room that is sure to catch.

Heart’s beating in my chest,
Head’s retracing all the steps.
It’s 2:00AM, I’m sure I’ll be alright.
Stomach’s turning while I try
To rest these weary eyes.
It’s 2:00AM, I’m sure I’ll be alright.

She said I wish I could be with you.
Wanted to believe those words, but I knew they weren't true.
Some things should’ve never happened,
Some things are better left unsaid.
The sun will soon be rising,
And I've yet to sweep this dirty head.

Heart’s beating in my chest,
Head’s retracing all the steps.
It’s 3:00AM, I’m sure I’ll be alright.
Stomach’s turning while I try to rest these weary eyes.
It’s 3:00AM, I’m sure I’ll be alright.

Time keeps ticking by.
Same mistakes, yeah, same old stories.
Ain't one for telling lies,
But maybe you would want to start one with me.

Can’t seem to get it right;
Same mistakes, yeah, there’s no glory.
The songs, they’re alright,
But that soft voice there’s nothing else that calms me.

Heart’s beating in my chest,
Head’s retracing all the steps.
It’s 4:00AM, I’m sure I’ll be alright.
Stomach’s turning while I try to rest these weary eyes,
It’s 4:00AM, I’m sure I’ll be alright.

Heart’s beating in my chest,
Head’s retracing all the steps.
It’s 4:00AM, I’m sure I’ll be alright.
Stomach’s turning while I try to rest these weary eyes,
It’s 4:00AM, I’m sure I’ll be alright.


The birds are singing, and I am anything but calm.
