lyrics

I lie awake and watch the pictures on your wall
I'm feeling sleepy so I try to count them all
And if I get to ten, I'll maybe fall asleep
But you won't

And in the morning-time I'd often think of you
In your apartment with it's perfect ocean view
I see you wash your face and slowly pack your things
As you go

You go and get your breakfast at the local corner store
You buy those little things we used to love before
Sit on the promenade and watch the people pass
As they go

Well you tried to follow through
With the things that you do
And you know you're not alone
You're at home

In the morning-time I'd often think of you
In your apartment with it's perfect ocean view
I see you count the stars and kiss them all goodnight
As they go

And it takes away your hunger
And it takes away your pain
And if you just write down this number it'll come again
