4Am Lyrics

Awake in bed at 4am
Awake in bed
'Cause lately sleep ain't been my friend
You leave me with no happy end
You said it all keeps
And even though I might complain
You know I feel the same ole way about you, babe
I'll love you till the very end
I love you, I can't see my life without youWe might be a long way from heaven
But I won't give in
No, not like this
I feel it is my Saturn return
There's a lot we can win
Just not like thisI see us pass the sleepless nights
I see us pass the silent fights and arguing
We'll make it through the distance phases
We'll make it through the stomach aches and crying, tears
Somehow we're back to fear again
Somehow we're back to questioning or leaving
There's never been a silent end
There's never been a nigh to spend without youWe might be a long way from heaven
But I won't give in
No, not like this
I feel it is my Saturn return
There's a lot we can win
Just not like thisSilky soft words are forgotten
But you treat me ?
Come inside, I'll keep you warm
Though it hurts me, leaves me torn
Every time you lend a hand
Our love outlasts the storm again
Again
AgainWe might be a long way from heaven
But I won't give in
No, not like this
I feel it is my Saturn return
There's a lot we can win
Just not like this
