Counting Stars

Lyricist:     Composer:

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 prayin' 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
In my face is flashing signs
Seek it out and ye shall find
Old, but I'm not that old

Young, but I'm not that bold
And I don't think the world is sold
I'm just doing what we're told
And I feel something so right

By doing the wrong thing
And I feel something so wrong
By 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 (Whoho!)

Dreaming about the things that we could be
But lately I've been, I've been prayin' hard (Whoho!)
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be...
We'll be counting stars
Yeah, We'll be counting stars, yeah!

I feel the love and I feel it burn
Down this river every turn
Hope is our four letter word
Make that money, watch it burn
Old, but I'm not that old
Young, but I'm not that bold

And I don't think the world is sold
I'm just doing what we're told
And I feel something so wrong
By doing the right thing

I could lie, could lie, could lie
Everything that drowns me makes me wanna fly
Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep (whoho!)
Dreaming about the things that we could be

But lately, I've been, I've been prayin' hard (Whoho!)
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be...
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 prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be...
We'll be counting stars
Yeah, we'll be counting stars
Wohoh
Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep

Dreaming about the things that we could be
But lately, I've been, I've been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be...
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 prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be, we'll be counting stars
