(Verse)
Remember coming home at 4 in the morning
Before the sun was up
Back in the east was a fire of gold
Just waiting for the rest of the sky to fall in love

(Verse)
Our hope is just a metaphor, of something better
for all of our dreams tonight
And fear is just a shadow of
The things that matter the most and I fear that I'm losing hope tonight

(Chorus)
Oh oh
I feel like I'm dreaming
Oh oh
Staring up at the ceiling
Oh oh
It's 4 in the morning
I can't sleep and it feels like a warning
Oh oh
Oh, would you believe me
If I could say it just the way that I'm feeling
Oh oh
The words that I wanted to say
I feel them slipping away

(Verse)
Remember that kid with the quivering lip
Whose heart was on his sleeve like a first aid kit
Where are you now?
Where are you now?

(Verse)
Remember that kid didn't know when to quit
I still lose my breath when I think about it
Oh where'd you go?
(Oh where'd you go?)

(Chorus)
Oh oh
I feel like I'm dreaming
Oh oh
Staring up at the ceiling
Oh oh
It's 4 in the morning
I can't sleep and it feels like a warning
Oh oh
Oh, would you believe me
If I could say it just the way that I'm feeling
Oh oh
The words that I wanted to say
I feel them slipping away

(Bridge)
I know this isn't what you had wanted
Past words in the present are haunting us now
And on and on and on and on
My heartbeat could tell you it's urgent
I try to shout but the words don't come out
I feel it slipping away

(Chorus)
Oh oh
I feel like I'm dreaming
Oh oh
Staring up at the ceiling
Oh oh
It's 4 in the morning
I can't sleep and it feels like warning
Oh oh
Oh, would you believe me
If I could say it just the way that I'm feeling
Oh oh
The words that I wanted to say
I feel them slipping away
