My 4 AM World

Everything around here closes at 2300
Except the gas station up the street
The food is expensive
I'm not all that hungry anyway
You've been asleep for hours
I'm not tired and besides
I know you sleep better knowing I'm awake
You seem to think that I'm going somewhere
that one day I'll go up in a puff of smoke
I won't lie to you
because it isn't up to me
I just don't know what to say
So I sit in silence
contemplating everything and nothing
hoping I can keep a promise
that I know I will never make
