Richard Buckner – 4 AM lyrics

It’s a bruised and a fallen sky
Pressed all up against us
And it’s just as true so far away
But I can be there by breakfast

If I just drive on through to you
So as the past goes breaking by
Where are you tonight?

It’s 4 am and I’m awake again
And not quite high enough
I’ll be back, you know when
Should I lie a little and dream away?
I’m just lying here anyway

With a chill a little heat
Could kill on sight
But where are you tonight?

Wasted and well spent
Taken and once wrecked
Oh, you’re better than this and that
I thought I was cured of any last chance

Unfastened and floored
Now all I want is
Just a little, nothing more

I looked inside the ring we wear
And I read myself to sleep
I caught myself so captured there
Deep inside those cavern eyes

Oh, my one, my one, you’ve broken me
At the vow below the vine
But where are you tonight?

Where are you tonight?
Where are you?
