Counting Stars - OneRepublic

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


I see this life
Like a swinging vine

Swing my heart across the line
In my faces 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
By doing the wrong thing
I feel something so wrong
By doing the right thing

I couldn't lie, couldn't lie, couldn't lie
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive

Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we] could be
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
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


I feel the love
And I feel it burn
Down this river every turn
Hope is a 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
I'm just doing what we're told
I, feel something so wrong
Bydoing the right thing

I could lie, could lie, could lie
Everything that drowns me makes me wanna fly


Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
Baby I been, I been prayin' hard

Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars

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


Take that money and watch it burn
Sink in the river the lessons I learned


Take that money and watch it burn
Sink in the river the lessons I learned


Take that money and watch it burn
Sink in the river the lessons I learned


Take that money and watch it burn
Sink in the river the lessons I learned


Everything that kills me makes me feel alive

Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
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
Dreaming 'bout the things that we could be
Baby I been, I been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars

We'll be, we'll be counting stars

(Take that money and watch it burn)
(Sink in the river the lessons I learned)

(Take that money and watch it burn)
(Sink in the river the lessons I learned)

(Take that money and watch it burn)
(Sink in the river the lessons I learned)

(Take that money and watch it burn)
(Sink in the river the lessons I learned)
