Am                 C

Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
G                              F

Dreaming about the things that we could be
    Am               C

But baby, I've been, I've been praying hard,
G                   
Said, no more counting dollars
F                              F

We'll be counting stars, yeah we'll be counting stars

           Am
I see this life like a swinging vine
C

Swing my heart across the line
G

In my face is flashing signs
F

Seek it out and ye shall find
Am
Oh, but I'm not that old
C

Young, but I'm not that bold
G

I don't think the world is sold
F

I'm just doing what we're told

Am C                G

I feel something so right
          F

Doing the wrong thing
Am C                G

I feel something so wrong
          F

Doing the right thing
F

I could lie, could lie, could lie
F (1 strum)
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive


Am                 C   
Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
G                              F

Dreaming about the things that we could be
Am                   C               
But baby, I've been, I've been praying hard,
G

Said, no more counting dollars
F

We'll be counting stars

Am                 C

Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep

Said, no more counting dollars
F

We'll be, we'll be counting stars


Repeat For the next verse

           Am 
I feel the love and I feel it burn
C

Down this river, every turn
G

Hope is a four-letter word
F

Make that money, watch it burn
Am
Oh, but I'm not that old
C

Young, but I'm not that bold
G

I don't think the world is sold
F

I'm just doing what we're told

  I feel something so wrong
          F

Doing the right thing
        F

I could lie, could lie, could lie
F (1 strum)
Everything that drowns me makes me wanna fly

Am                 C

Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
G                              F

Lately I been, I been losing sleep
Dreaming 'bout the things that we could be
But baby I been, I been prayin' 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
In my faces flashing signs
Seek it out and ye shall find
The old, but I'm not that old
Young, but I'm not that bold
And I don't think the world is sold
I'm just doing what we're told
I, feel something so right
But doing the wrong thing
I, feel something so wrong
But doing the right thing
I could lie, could lie, could lie
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive

Lately I been, I been losing sleep
Dreaming 'bout the things that we could be
Baby I been, I been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars
Lately I been, I been losing sleep
Dreaming 'bout the things that we could be
But baby I been, I been prayin' 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 a 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
I'm just doing what we're told
I, feel something so wrong
But doing the right thing
I could lie, could lie, could lie
Everything that drowns me makes me wanna fly

Lately I been, I been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
Baby I been, I been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars
Lately I been, I been losing sleep
Dreaming 'bout the things that we could be
But baby I been, I been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be, we'll be counting stars

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

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

Everything that kills me makes me feel alive

Lately I been, I been losing sleep
Dreaming 'bout the things that we could be
Baby I been, I been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars
Lately I been, I been losing sleep
Dreaming 'bout the things that we could be
Baby I been, I been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be, we'll be counting stars

(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)

(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)
