Counting Stars



[Chorus]Lately I been, I been losing sleepDreaming about the things that we could beBut baby I been, I been prayin' hardSaid no more counting dollarsWe'll be counting starsYeah, we'll be counting stars
[Verse 1]I see this lifeLike a swinging vineSwing my heart across the lineIn my face is flashing signsSeek it out and ye shall findOld, but I'm not that oldYoung, but I'm not that boldAnd I don't think the world is soldI'm just doing what we're told
I feel something so rightAt doing the wrong thingI feel something so wrongAt doing the right thingI could lie, could lie, could lieEverything that kills me makes me feel alive
[Chorus]Lately I been, I been losing sleepDreaming about the things that we could beBut baby I been, I been prayin' hardSaid no more counting dollarsWe'll be counting starsLately I been, I been losing sleepDreaming about the things that we could beBut baby I been, I been prayin' hardSaid no more counting dollarsWe'll be, we'll be counting stars
[Verse 2]I feel the loveAnd I feel it burnDown this river every turnHope is a four letter wordMake that moneyWatch it burnOld, but I'm not that oldYoung, but I'm not that boldAnd I don't think the world is soldI'm just doing what we're told
And I feel something so wrongAt doing the right thingI could lie, could lie, could lieEverything that downs me makes me wanna fly
[Chorus]Lately I been, I been losing sleepDreaming about the things that we could beBut baby I been, I been prayin' hardSaid no more counting dollarsWe'll be counting starsLately I been, I been losing sleepDreaming about the things that we could beBut baby I been, I been prayin' hardSaid no more counting dollarsWe'll be, we'll be counting stars
[Bridge 4x:]Take that moneyWatch it burnSink in the riverThe lessons I learned
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive
[Chorus]Lately I been, I been losing sleepDreaming about the things that we could beBut baby I been, I been prayin' hardSaid no more counting dollarsWe'll be counting starsLately I been, I been losing sleepDreaming about the things that we could beBut baby I been, I been prayin' hardSaid no more counting dollarsWe'll be, we'll be counting stars
[Outro 4x:]Take that moneyWatch it burnSink in the riverThe lessons I learned
