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