Who is counting sleepless nights
Who is counting letters I meant to write
I said who is counting at all
If you are
I look pretty small

But no matter what I do
If I couldnt call you mine
If I couldnt be with you
Id just be killing time

You went searching for me in the night sky
And when I burned away you wondered why
Well Ill tell you babe I could not bear to stall
I fell too fast I fell too far

But no matter what I do
If I couldnt call you mine
If I couldnt be with you
Id just be killing time

Big big fishes in little ponds
Ive seen them walk around with magic wands

But no matter what I do
If I couldnt call you mine
If I couldnt be with you
Id just be killing time

There aint no magician hidden inside of me
So no matter what you hear I hope you see
That just when Im trying to be tall
Thats when I end up looking pretty small

But no matter what I do
If I couldnt call you mine
If I couldnt be with you
Id just be killing time

No matter what I do
(and you know I will burn)
If I couldnt be call you mine
(like a star in the sky)
If I couldnt be with you
(all Id be doing is)
Id just be killing time

But no matter what I do
If I couldnt call you mine
If I couldnt be with you
Id just be killing time
