Listen to the song and complete the lyrics


Lately I've been, I've been
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But, baby I've been, I've been praying hard
Said no more counting dollars, we'll be counting stars
Yeah, we'll be counting stars

I see this life like a swinging vine,
Swing my heart
In my face is flashing signs,
Seek it out and you shall find

Old but I'm not
Young but I'm not that bold
And I don't think the world is sold
I'm just doing what we're told

I feel something so right by doing the wrong thing
And I feel something so wrong by doing the right thing
I could lie, couldn't I, couldn't I?
Everything that kills me makes me

Lately I've been, I've been
Dreaming about the things that we could be
Baby I've been, I've been praying hard
Said no more counting dollars, we'll be counting stars [x2]

I feel her love
And I feel it burn down this river every time
Hope is our four-letter word, make that money

Old but, I'm not
Young, but I'm not that bold
And I don't think the world is sold
I'm just doing what we're told

And I feel something so wrong by doing the right thing
I could lie, couldn't I, couldn't I?
Everything that drowns me makes me wanna

Lately I've been, I've been
Dreaming about the things that we could be
Baby I've been, I've been praying hard
Said no more counting dollars, we'll be counting stars [x2]

Take that money ,
Sing in the river the lessons I learned [x4]

Everything that kills me makes me

Lately I've been, I've been
Dreaming about the things that we could be
Baby I've been, I've been praying hard
Said no more counting dollars, we'll be counting stars [x2]

Take that money ,
Sing in the river the lessons I learned [x4]
