40 Hours Lyrics by Howie Day

 

40 Hours by Howie Day


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
