Singalong! 3am by Matchbox Twenty

According to Youtube, this song came out in 2007, but I feel like there is no way that can be right. Okay, yep, nope, it's totally wrong. I didn't even have to hit enter on my google search to learn that it was 1996. (Is this the future we have come to? You don't even have to execute an inquiry to get the answer. Weird.) Anyways, this song is clearly about a woman with a few mild delusions and a sleep disorder. Perhaps the illusions are because she can only sleep when it's raining outside.


3AM
by Matchbox Twenty

She says it's cold outside and she hands me my raincoat
She's always worried about things like that
She says it's all gonna end and it might as well be my fault
And she only sleeps when it's raining
And she screams, and her voice is straining

And she says baby
It's three a.m. I must be lonely
When she says baby
Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes
And the rain's gonna wash away I believe it

She's got a little bit of something, god it's better than nothing
And in her color portrait world she believes that she's got it all
She swears the moon don't hang quite as high as it used to
And she only sleeps when it's raining
And she screams, and her voice is straining

And she says baby
It's three a.m. I must be lonely
Oh, when she says baby
Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes
And the rain's gonna wash away I believe this

She believes that life isn't made up of all that you're used to
And the clock on the wall has been stuck at 3 for days, and days
She thinks that happiness is the mat that sits on her doorway
But outside it stopped raining

And she says baby
It's three a.m. I must be lonely
When she says baby
Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes
And the rain's gonna wash away I believe this

Well it's three a.m. I must be lonely
Well hell, when she says baby
Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes
