"4am" as written by and Simon Aldred....
It'll get you on the last bus home
Get you at the discount bend
It'll get you on the old dance floor
Get you as the party ends

Oh 4am, is the time when you were mine
Frozen in deepest sleep, for only I to keep
Now there ain't no hiding place on earth
That loneliness ain't been first

It'll get you hanging out your clothes
Get you as you wash your hair
It'll get you as you're making plans
Catch you trying to climb the stairs

Oh 4am, is the time when you were mine
Frozen in deepest sleep, watching the morning creep
Now there ain't no hiding place on earth
That loneliness ain't been first

Hard times, hole in my heart, who stole the sun and
Left me alone again
Give me a guiding light, a stretch of sky and a hand on
My shoulder singing

Hard times, hole in my heart, who stole the sun and
Left me alone again
Give me a guiding light, a stretch of sky and a hand on
My shoulder

Oh 4am, is the time when were mine
Frozen in deepest sleep, for only I to keep
Now there ain't no place on earth
That loneliness ain't been first

Oh no, there ain't no hiding place on earth
That loneliness ain't been first, been first, been first

    General Commentthis song always makes me smileeee.
    i think it's how that image of his lover comes back to him all the time, on the last bus home, at the discount bend in the supermarket. when he has to do these things all on his own he feels like he has a hole in his heart, and he just misses the time at 4am when his lover was sleeping next to him.
    sweet.

    General Commentthis song is about when you feel lonely cause of a break up

    hard times, hole in my heart, who stole the sun and
    left me alone again

    and the feeling of lonelyness and how it can hit you at anytime

    It'll get you on the last bus home
    get you at the discount bend
    it'll get youon the old dance floor
    get you as the party ends

    It'll get you hanging out your clothes
    get you as you wash your hair
    it'll get you as your're making plans
    catch you trying to climb the stairs

    i love this song even though its about unhappy time that you can have it makes me smile big time

    defo feel good song

    General CommentThough you may think this a sad song because it seems to be about loneliness, for me it's saying that >everyone< gets a little lonely.
