Howie Day – 40 Hours lyrics

Lately after dark
I've been wandering through the park
With the angry words you said
Wandering through my head

There's nothing I can do
To keep from feeling like I blew
The only chance I had to make it better

The shadow on the wall
Is looking down from 10 feet tall
And I wonder what it sees
As I stumble through the streets

To never feel alone
It seemed written down in stone
But now it's all I can do
To try and forget her

40 hours
And counting
I could shut my eyes
And sleep here

Morning comes and goes
And I'm tangle in the throes
In the stillness of my room
And the bandage on my wound

My heart becomes a bird
She set free with just a word
And now I'm wishing
That I had never met her

40 hours
And counting
I could shut my eyes
And sleep here

People rushing by
Out the corner of my eye
A kaleidoscope of bloom
A mirror broke in two

A thousand little stars
And in a million little wars
Scattered out across the open desert

40 hours
And counting
I shut my eyes
And sleep here

(Instrumental)

A world is set ablaze
By a never ending haze
And you're closer than a tear
I see you ever clear

The rushes in the veins
And there's nothing else to blame
But every minute, every hour,
Every second

40 hours
And counting
I shut my eyes and sleep here
Shut my eyes and sleep to dream

Lately after dark
I've been wandering thru the park
With the angry words you said
Wandering through my head

There's nothing I can do
To keep from feeling like I blew
The only chance I had to make it better
