Counting Stars

OneRepublic

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 praying 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

And 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

On just doing what we're told

I-I-I-I feel something so right

Doing the wrong thing

I-I-I-I feel something so wrong

Doing the right thing

I couldn't lie, couldn't lie, couldn't lie

Everything that kills me makes me feel alive

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 praying hard

Said no more counting dollars

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 praying hard

Said no more counting dollars

We'll be, we'll be counting stars

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

On just doing what we're told

I-I-I-I feel something so wrong

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

Dreaming about the things that we could be

But baby, I've been, I've been praying hard

Said no more counting dollars

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 praying hard

Said no more counting dollars

We'll be, we'll be counting stars

Take that money

Watch it burn

Sink in the river

The lessons I've learned

Take that money

Watch it burn

Sink in the river

The lessons I've learned

Take that money

Watch it burn

Sink in the river

The lessons I've learned

Take that money

Watch it burn

Sink in the river

The lessons I've learned

Everything that kills me, makes feel alive...

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 praying hard

Said no more counting dollars

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 praying hard

Said no more counting dollars

We'll be, we'll be counting stars

Take that money

Watch it burn

Sink in the river

The lessons I've learned

Take that money

Watch it burn

Sink in the river

The lessons I've learned

Take that money

Watch it burn

Sink in the river

The lessons I've learned

Take that money

Watch it burn

Sink in the river

The lessons I've learned

“Immortals”

Fallout Boys

They say we are what we are,But we don't have to be,

I'm bad behavior but I do it in the best way

,I'll be the watcher (watcher) of the eternal flame

I'll be the guard dog of all your favorite dreams,

I am the sand in the bottom half of the hourglass (glass, glass),(Ooh)

,I try to picture me without you but I can't.

'Cause we could be immortals, immortals.

Just not for long, for long,

And live with me forever now,

Pull the blackout curtains down,

Just not for long, for long,

We could be immor- immortals,Immor- immortals,

Immor- immortals,Immor- immortals,

Sometimes the only pay off for having any faith,

Is when it's tested again and again everyday,

I'm still comparing your past to my future,

It might be your wound but they're my sutures,

Ooh I am the sand in the bottom half of the hourglass (glass, glass)

I try to picture me without you but I can't

'Cause we could be immortals, immortals

Just not for long, for long

If we meet forever now, you pull the blackout curtains down

Just not for long, for long

We could be immor-immortals, immor-immortals

Immortals

If we meet forever now, pull the blackout curtains down

We could be immor-immortals, immor-immortals

Just not for long, for long

We could be immor-immortals, immor-immortals

Immor-immortals, immor-immortals

Immortals

“Bet My My Life.”

Imagine Dragons

I know I took the path that you would never want for me.

I know I let you down, didn't I?

So many sleepless nights where you were waiting up on me.

Well I'm just a slave unto the night

Now remember when I told you that's the last you'll see of me.

Remember when I broke you down to tears I know

I took the path that you would never want for me.

I gave you hell through all the years.

So I, I bet my life, I bet my life.I bet my life on you.

I, I bet my life, I bet my life.I bet my life on you.

I've been around the world and never in my wildest dreams.

Would I come running home to you.

I've told a million lies but now I tell a single truth

There's you in everything I do.

Now remember when I told you that's the last you'll see of me.

Remember when I broke you down to tears I know I took the path that you would never want for me

I gave you hell through all the years

So I, I bet my life, I bet my life

I bet my life for you

I, I bet my life, I bet my life

I bet my life for you

Don't tell me that I'm wrong

I've walked that road before

And left you on your own

And please believe them when they say

That it's left for yesterday

And the records that I've played

Please forgive me for all I've done

So I, I bet my life, I bet my life

I bet my life for you

I, I bet my life, I bet my life

I bet my life for you

I, I bet my, I bet my, I bet my

I, I bet my, I bet my, I bet my

My Poem

Hurricane

My life is like a hurricane

Because every time I build my walls

They come crashing down

My walls are my dreams

The hurricane is my nightmare.

Snow Storm

I enter the cold, black night

As soon as my finger tips hit the air, they freeze.

The only thing that keeps me warm

Is the love in my heart.

The chill quickly creeps up my spine

The snow is my pain,

The desire is found in my heart.
