It’s 3am, I must be lonely

If there’s an unidentifiable, unending, aggravating noise in the house, it usually happens about 3 am.

Am I the only one to hear Matchbox 20 playing ceaselessly in the back of my brain at this hour?

“3 AM”

She said it’s cold outside and she hands me my raincoat
She’s always worried about things like that
She said 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 strained
And
She says baby
It’s 3 am I must be lonely
When she says baby
Well I can’t help but be scared of it all sometimes
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 strained…
And
She says baby
It’s 3 am I must be lonely
Well heaven she says baby
Well I can’t help but be scared of it all sometimes
Says the rain’s gonna wash away I believe it

She believes that life is made up of all that you’re used to
And the clock on the wall has been stuck at three for days, and days
She thinks that happiness is a mat that sits on her doorway
But outside it’s stopped raining
She says baby
It’s 3 am I must be lonely
Well heaven she says baby
Well I can’t help but be scared of it all sometimes
Says the rain’s gonna wash away I believe it

Well it’s 3 am I must be lonely
Well heaven she says baby
Well I can’t help but be scared of it all sometimes

  1. I hear it too. Am often up at that hour (although less now than ever before)..I have a variety of breathing exercises I was taught to help minimize the insomnia. And I’ve learned to embrace it..if I’m awake, I get up and do something else – read usually. So welcome to the club – we’ve got t-shirts…
