But baby I've been, I've been praying hard
Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep
We'll be counting stars
Yeah, we'll be counting stars
Said no more counting dollars
Dreaming about the things that we could be
 
Old, but I'm not that old
In my face's flashing sun
I see this life
Young, but I'm not that bold
Swing my heart across the line
Like a swinging vine
Seek it out and you shall find
 
I feel something so right
And I don't think the world is sold
I'm just doing what we're told
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive
I could lie, could lie, could lie
But doing the wrong thing
But doing the right thing
I feel something so wrong
 
But baby I've been, I've been praying hard
Said no more counting dollars
Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep
We'll be counting stars
Dreaming about the things that we could be
 
Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
We'll be, we'll be counting stars
Baby I've been, I've been praying hard
Said no more counting dollars
 
Down this river every turn
Hope is a four letter word
Young, but I'm not that bold
Watch it burn
Take that money
I feel the love
Old, but I'm not that old
And I feel it burn
 
I'm just doing what we're told
But doing the right thing
And I don't think the world is sold
Everything that drowns me makes me wanna fly
I could lie, could lie, could lie
And I feel something so wrong
 
Dreaming about the things that we could be
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars
But baby I've been, I've been praying hard
Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep
 
Said no more counting dollars
Dreaming about the things that we could be
Baby I've been, I've been praying hard
We'll be, we'll be counting stars
Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep
 
Sink in the river the lessons I learned
Sink in the river the lessons I learned
Take that money and watch it burn
Take that money and watch it burn
Take that money and watch it burn
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive
Sink in the river the lessons I learned
Take that money and watch it burn
Sink in the river the lessons I learned
 
Dreaming about the things that we could be
We'll be counting stars
Said no more counting dollars
But baby I've been, I've been praying hard
Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep
 
We'll be, we'll be counting stars
Dreaming about the things that we could be
Said no more counting dollars
Lately I've been, I've been losing sleep
Baby I've been, I've been praying hard
 
Take that money and watch it burn
Sink in the river the lessons I learned
Take that money and watch it burn
Take that money and watch it burn
Take that money and watch it burn
Sink in the river the lessons I learned
Sink in the river the lessons I learned
Sink in the river the lessons I learned
