lyrics

5AM, I saw the day before it changes,
Before we lose our feelings in the same old way.
I know a girl a bit like me – she tries too hard
To find some kind of meaning in things that have none,
When all of the hours that the sun shines on pass her window
And she can't get them into her eyes.

She says she hates to see the change
In long hot summer days.
Well I don't remember how they used to be,
Cos I never set my summers free –
I got no sorrow that don't make me angry,
And my heartache shows –
I'm always the last to go home.
When the sun shines on my window,
She can only see the clouds in my eyes.

But I know why the blue sky always made her cry,
Like she never saw the world before,
Like she never made anything happen at all,
And I see how the daybreak only wears us out –
These children never get lonely no more,
Cos they’re all grown up now.

We’re all grown up now, yeah.

5AM, I hold the key
To all the places that I can never go,
That I will never see.
I know this girl will still believe we fall asleep too fast
To wake so slowly for much longer now,
And when the long hot summer comes around,
Drawn once again to our windows,
We can’t know what it’s done to our eyes.

And I know why the blue sky always makes her cry,
Like she never saw the world before,
Like she never made anything happen at all,
And I see how the daybreak only wears us out –
These children never get lonely no more,
Cos we’re all grown up now.
