2 AM and she calls me
'Cause I'm still awake
Can you help me
Unravel my latest mistake?
I don't love him
And winter just wasn't my season
Yeah, we walk through the door
So accusing their eyes
Like they have any right at all to criticize
Hypocrites, you're all here
For the very same reason

Because you can't jump the track
We're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass
Glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button, girl
So just cradle your head in your hands
And breathe
Just breathe
Oh breathe
Just breathe

May he turned 21
On the base of Fort Bliss
Just today he sat down
To the flask in his fist
Ain't been sober
Since maybe October of last year
Here in town you can tell
He's been down for a while
But, my God, it's so beautiful
When the boy smiles
Wanna hold him
Maybe I'll just sing about it

Because you can't jump the track
We're like cars on a cable
And life's like an hourglass
Glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button, boys
So just cradle your head in your hands
And breathe
Just breathe
Oh breathe
Just breathe
There's a light at each end
Of this tunnel
You shout because
You're just as far in
As you'll ever be out
And these mistakes you made
You'll just make them again
If you'll only try turning around

2 AM and I'm still awake
Writing this song
If I get it all down on paper
It's no longer inside of me
Threatening the life it belongs to
And I feel like I'm naked
In front of the crowd
Because these words are
My diary screaming out loud
And I know
That you'll use them however you want
