Am                 C
Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
G                              F
Dreaming about the things that we could be
    Am               C
But baby, I've been, I've been praying hard,
G                   
Said, no more counting dollars
F                              F
We'll be counting stars, yeah we'll be counting stars


[Verse]

           Am
I see this life like a swinging vine
C
Swing my heart across the line
G
In my face is flashing signs
F
Seek it out and ye shall find
Am
Old, but I'm not that old
C
Young, but I'm not that bold
G
I don't think the world is sold
F
I'm just doing what we're told


[Pre-Chorus]

Am C                G
I feel something so right
          F
Doing the wrong thing
Am C                G
I feel something so wrong
          F
Doing the right thing
F
I could lie, could lie, could lie
F 
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive


[Chorus]

Am                 C   
Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
G                              F
Dreaming about the things that we could be
Am                   C               
But baby, I've been, I've been praying hard,
G
Said, no more counting dollars
F
We'll be counting stars
Am                 C
Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
G                              F
Dreaming about the things that we could be
Am                   C
But baby, I've been, I've been praying hard,
G                       
Said, no more counting dollars
F
We'll be, we'll be counting stars


[Verse]

           Am 
I feel the love and I feel it burn
C
Down this river, every turn
G
Hope is a four-letter word
F
Make that money, watch it burn
Am
Old, but I'm not that old
C
Young, but I'm not that bold
G
I don't think the world is sold
F
I'm just doing what we're told


[Pre-Chorus]

Am  C                 G
I feel something so wrong
          F
Doing the right thing
        F
I could lie, could lie, could lie
F
Everything that drowns me makes me wanna fly


[Chorus]

Am                 C
Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
G                              F
Dreaming about the things that we could be
    Am               C
But baby, I've been, I've been praying hard,
G         
Said, no more counting dollars
F
We'll be counting stars
Am                 C
Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
G                              F
Dreaming about the things that we could be
    Am               C
But baby, I've been, I've been praying hard,
G              
Said, no more counting dollars
F
We'll be, we'll be counting stars

Sink in the river
N.C.                                                 
Sink in the river
N.C.                                                 
Sink in the river
N.C.                                                 
Sink in the river
N.C.
