      About "Counting Stars"

      Initially encountering only mediocre success, OneRepublic's "Counting Stars" marks one of the pop rock's bands best global hits. After reaching Billboard's No. 86 on the Hot 100 Chart, a live performance on hit TV show "The Voice" brought the catchy track to No. 8 on the charts. The music video, largely taking place in a dark basement with eclectic scenes like an alligator, no doubt helped bring the original 2007 breakout stars new-found success.

      Lyrics for OneRepublic - "Counting Stars"

      Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
      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 across the line
      And my face is flashing signs
      Seek it out and you shall find
      Old, but I'm not that old
      Young, but I'm not that bold
      I don't think the world is sold
      I'm just doing what we're told
      I feel something so right
      Doing the wrong thing
      I feel something so wrong
      Doing the right thing
      I could lie, coudn't I, could lie
      Everything that kills me makes me feel alive

      Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
      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

      Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
      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, we'll be counting stars

      I feel the love and I feel it burn
      Down this river, every turn
      Hope is a four-letter word
      Make that money, watch it burn
      Old, but I'm not that old
      Young, but I'm not that bold
      I don't think the world is sold
      I'm just doing what we're told
      I feel something so wrong
      Doing the right thing
      I could lie, could lie, could lie
      Everything that drowns me makes me wanna fly

      Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
      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

      Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
      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, we'll be counting stars

      Take that money
      Watch it burn
      Sink in the river
      The lessons are learned

      Take that money
      Watch it burn
      Sink in the river
      The lessons are learned

      Take that money
      Watch it burn
      Sink in the river
      The lessons are learned

      Take that money
      Watch it burn
      Sink in the river
      The lessons are learned

      Everything that kills me makes feel alive

      Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
      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

      Lately, I've been, I've been losing sleep
      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, we'll be, counting stars

      Take that money
      Watch it burn
      Sink in the river
      The lessons are learned

      Take that money
      Watch it burn
      Sink in the river
      The lessons are learned

      Take that money
      Watch it burn
      Sink in the river
      The lessons are learned

      Take that money
      Watch it burn
      Sink in the river
      The lessons are learned
