    Lyrics

    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 praying 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
    And my face is flashing signs
    Seek it out and you shall find
    Oh, but I'm not that old
    Young, but I'm not that bold
    I don't think the world is sold
    I'm just doing what we're told
    I feel something so right
    Doing the wrong thing
    I feel something so wrong
    Doing the right thing
    I could lie, could lie, could 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
    But baby, I've been, I've been praying 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 praying 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
    Oh, but I'm not that old
    Young, but I'm not that bold
    I don't think the world is sold
    I'm just doing what we're told
    I feel something so wrong
    Doing the right thing
    I could lie, could lie, could lie
    Everything that downs me makes me wanna fly

    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 praying 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 praying hard,

    Said no more counting dollars
    We'll be, we'll be counting stars

    Take that money
    Watch it burn
    Sink in the river
    The lessons I've learned

    Take that money
    Watch it burn
    Sink in the river
    The lessons I've learned

    Take that money
    Watch it burn
    Sink in the river
    The lessons I've learned

    Take that money
    Watch it burn
    Sink in the river
    The lessons I've learned

    Everything that kills me makes feel alive

    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 playing 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 playing hard,
    Said no more counting dollars
    We'll be, we'll be, counting stars

    Take that money
    Watch it burn
    Sing in the river
    The lessons are learnt

    Take that money
    Watch it burn
    Sing in the river
    The lessons are learnt

    Take that money
    Watch it burn
    Sing in the river
    The lessons are learnt

    Take that money
    Watch it burn
    Sing in the river
    The lessons are learnt

      Isn't it the song that goes "Cause you're a sky, cause you're a sky full of stars"? I am wrong again. Too late!
