I Hate 3AM

written by Paulina Logan


It's 3 am and I'm thinking of going home

I don't like this place much, this place of lights and chrome

There are too many strangers, there are too many friends

It is 3 am, I don't know how to make amends

I hate 3 am I hate 3 am

It's so dark out the stars forgot to shine

Inside my head everything is already mine

There is too much fear, there is too much hate

It is 3 am and I am already late

I hate 3 am I hate 3 am

I can't sleep, there is too much noise

And this devil on my shoulder is controlling my voice

But the clock is ticking, the seconds go by

Too much hurt is now too much reason to cry

I hate 3 am I hate 3 am

What's the news today, I ask the TV

All I get is silence and standby pity

Media controlled by me, media controlled by you

Media controlled by everyone until it turns blue

I hate 3 am I hate 3 am

Stuck here awake, I am dying of thirst

For the common dream when the bubble burst

There was too much love, there was too much decency

I couldn't handle anything that I could see

I hate 3 am I hate 3 am

When the sun rises

3 am will be long gone

I guess I could use the time to write another song

There are not enough words, there are not enough notes

I would not be so concerned if I was not already broke

I hate 3 am I hate 3 am
