It's 4 am and I'm wide awake
Waiting for the thoughts to fade
I flick a ring of all of my mistakes
And as the light starts creeping in
I slowly feel
The day missing
But I wont even know where to begin

Do I push too hard
I fall too fast
A moment never seems to last
And will I stop long enough to know

Cos everybody burns
And when it starts to hurt
I cry
I feel it in my veins
I just cant walk away, this time

Your words circle in my head
And weigh so heavy on my chest
And I'm crushed by your expectation
I only want to do some good
To dumb to know if I could
And I just wanna feel the days I'm in

And do I go too far
Not far enough
Why cant I keep my big mouth shut and do
And lead the life that we should

And everybody burns
And when it starts to hurt I cry
I feel it in my veins
I just cant walk away, this time

Did I say too much again?
I'm just a girl in a panic
If I tell you my truth
Am I getting through?
And it just seems I should confess
Who am I to pretend?
This is more than I can carry

Cause everybody burns
And when it starts to hurt
I cry

I hold my head up high
I know ill be alright, this time

I feel it in my veins
I just cant walk away this time
This time
This time
This time
This time

Its 4 am and I'm wide awake
Waiting for my thoughts to fade
And its time like these I see your face
