4am Blues

Open your eyes before the dawn
Looked outside and saw the rain lashing on your window pane
Turn on the light, turn on the TV
Let it wash away the pain
It’s always the same

4am Blues
Sandman’s gone away
He took your dreaming shoes
and led your mind astray
4am Blues
Tired but wide awake
What else can you lose
with nothing left to take
when you’re tired but wide awake

All these voices speak from the past
running circles through your mind
They can be so unkind
Plans and choices, did you make ‘em too fast
in a race against the time
It’s here you always find

4am Blues
Sandman’s gone away
He took your dreaming shoes
and led your mind astray
4am Blues
Tired but wide awake
What else can you lose
with nothing left to take
when you’re tired but wide awake
when you’re tired but wide awake
tired but wide awake
tired but wide awake
