4AM

Sam Perry

 

 

 

 

When I'm crying all night long

I see you’ve got your nightgown on

While I’m driving down

the interstate

Wide awake at 4AM

Wide awake at 4AM

 

When I'm damning all existence

I see you standing in the kitchen

Commanding that my happiness be simple

With a pencil in your hand

Wide awake at 4AM

Writing late at 4AM

 

the seas will rise and they will hide the cities built by man

The embers will turn ash and then they'll blow away on wind

The apple seed that you spit out will grow through the house

That you grew up in

And the last page will be through at 4AM

And the last train will be due at 4AM

 

The lamppost with a broken arm

Will dance to the air raid alarm

The bombs will fall and rain will fill the craters

And later will be wine at 4AM

and you'll ask the time at 4AM

 

You and me will see what's left

When even rodents flee the wreck

The best of all the worthless wasteland few

And I'll dance with you at 4AM

I’m stranded here past due at 4AM

 

the seas will rise and they will hide the cities built by man

The embers will turn ash and then they'll blow away on wind

The apple seed that you spit out will grow through the house

That you grew up in

And I’ll speak to you at 4AM

I’m weak and I’m past due at 4AM

 

I say perfection lies ahead

You say that's what you thought I'd said

I say I'm fine the way I am

To you

Everything seems true at 4AM

Everything seems true at 4 AM

 

Yesterday you did love me

And now you say I guess we'll see

And I can be your memory's

to haunt

I want to be with you at 4AM

Even this seems true at 4AM

 

the seas will rise and they will hide the cities built by man

The embers will turn ash and then they'll blow away on wind

The apple seed that you spit out will grow through the house

That you grew up in

Everything seems true at 4AM

And I’ll speak to you at 4AM

And the last sheet will be due at 4AM

I’m wide awake at 4AM
