"Counting Numbers" as written by and Christopher James Wollard Charles Allen Ragan....
We are proud to get away
Some time to think alone
Mixed feelings about the whole thing
Should you come back, I don't know

Today
It was so hard being alone
I can hardly sing,
Gotta hold on I'm trying

I owe it every day
That I wake and stay. I'm gonna make it.
(Dues I'll pay, I'll recognize
from our days. I'm gonna make it.)

You got a lot of things to say
That I'm a selfish human being
But I drove alone today
Felt the wind and remembered everything

I laughed today
And I'll laugh again tomorrow
I count mistakes
But I still gotta find the blessings

Got thinking I'm not happy
Not thinking right
I can't wash this away
But gotta get it out of my mind
Another lonely night
All alone, drunk in my bed
Think until I close my eyes
Then wake up and find a new day

    General Commentthis song helped me a lot when i moved away from home in new jersey over to maui. It was really the first time being on my own. During the time I was over there I lost the whole reason for me being there, but when I hear counting numbers I can say "I felt the wind and remembered everything."

    General CommentThe lyrics don't give too much away, which is what makes it so good, as we can all relate to it in someway or another. "I'm gonna make it..." great song.
