"Counting Headlights" as written by Thomas Salter, David Thomson, Liam Titcomb and Bill Bottrell....
Lying on the floor and I can't sleep
The burning in my heart is the only light I see
Doing time inside of my own mind
Waiting for you to call

So what happens next?
The message has been checked
Are you coming home?

(Chorus)
You don't know what it feels like
To have stars in your eyes
And a thorn in your side
You don't know what it feels like
Staring out your window... counting headlights

Pace the room, unlock the door
Turn the light off on the porch
Try to keep myself from going crazy
Light a candle, strike a match
Watch it as it fades to black
Should I go to bed?
I'm thinking maybe...

(Chorus)
You don't know what it feels like
To have stars in your eyes
And a thorn in your side
You don't know what it feels like
Staring out your window... counting headlights

The least you could do is let me down
Won't you let me down

As the sun peaks through the pain
Across my cheek
You're not coming home
Yeah, you're not coming home

(Chorus)
You don't know what it feels like
To have stars in your eyes
And a thorn in your side
You don't know what it feels like
Staring out your window... counting headlights

Counting headlights
Counting headlights...
