FiN – 5am lyrics

To stay in or to go out is as complex as it gets
There is little time to waste on regrets
'Cause the voice in my head
Says I can sleep when I'm dead
So I think a drink will help me to bury it

Raise me on tv
Sugar and caffeine
Drinking till 5 in the morning

There's a train back to London at 7am
So we may as well keep drinking till then
And the girl in the corner with a gleam in her eye
Is all over me and I feel alright

Raise me on tv
Sugar and Caffeine
Drinking till 5 in the morning
Sleep in till midday
Frank Black and Cobain,
Drinking till 5 in the morning

Drinking all alone by yourself, it's 5am
Your best friend falls asleep on the couch, it's 5am
Lets start again...
