"4am" as written by and Mcpherson,graham/barson,michael....
4 am

Terry turns he just cannot sleep from the ceaseless noise out in the street
It's too hot, and it's too late, there's nothing he can do but wait

Terry says I'm going nowhere fast
Nobody hears there's no-one there
Julie wakes to find herself alone
Which comes as no surprise, no surprise, no surprise, to be on her own

It's four in the morning
Why don't you call me?
I'm sorry I hurt you
I still want you back
It's four in the morning

Julie wakes to find herself alone
Which comes as no surprise, no surprise, no surprise, to be on her own

It's four in the morning
Why don't you call me?
I'm sorry I hurt you
I still want you back

It's four in the morning
Why don't you call me?
I'm sorry I hurt you
I still want you back
It's four in the morning

Waiting I'm so tired of waiting

It's four in the morning
Why don't you call me?
I'm sorry I hurt you
I still want you back

I know what you're thinking
You're alone now
I'm sorry I hurt you
I still want you back

It's four in the morning
Why don't you call me?
I'm sorry I hurt you
I still want you back

    General CommentI can't help noticing the names of the protagonists, which are the same as in Waterloo Sunset.

    A simple tale this, works pretty well.

    My InterpretationI believe the song is meant to be a continuation of the characters from Waterloo Sunset.
