"4 And 20" as written by Connor Reeves, Jonathan Nicholas Shorten and Joss Stone....
They say time waits for no man
And neither does this woman
I've been trying hard to understand
Would it be?
Many moons have come and gone
And this little heart is still holding on
To what could be, maybe should be, baby
Crazy is all it's making me
I've been holding on for way too long
It can't go on

You've got 4 and 20 hours
Just one day to prove to me
That your love has got the power
Make me believe
You'll take me where I wanna be
4 and 20 hours
And that's me, hm, baby
That's me, yes

They say Rome wasn't built in a day, but hey
They've got nothing on the patience
That it's taking me to wait
See the sands of the hourglass
Are slipping through your hands
Every grain has got to hurt you
Takes you further from your chance
I've been holding on for way too long
(It's been too long)
Either you're in or you're out

You've got 4 and 20 hours
(24 hours, one day)
Just one day to prove to me
That your love has got the power
(Show me)
Make me believe
You'll take me where I wanna be
4 and 20 hours
And that's me

See everyday I,
I walk out of my front door
And I've been wishing and hoping
That today is the day that you're gonna
You gonna smile in front of my face
And tell me something
Something worth talking about
Tell me that you love me
Tell me you gonna be a man
Show off for me baby

You got one day
I will give you 24 hours baby
That all you should need
Ooh
24 hours should be,
Should be enough for you love
Just make me believe
(Take me where I wanna be)
Make me believe that you're the man for me baby
Ooh, yeah

I gotta believe you, baby
I'm gonna need more than flowers, honey, child
More than talk I'm telling you
4 and 20 hours

4 and 20 hours
It should be more than enough for you

    General CommentI love this song!
    I heard it in "Valentine's Day" and I just feel in love with it.
    It is so sexy and sensual.
    Stone really sings this song.

    This song is from a woman telling her guy that he has 4 and 20 hours (one day) to show her how much he REALLY cares. And even though it was featured in "Valentine's Day," I'm not certain that it is that holiday that she wants.

    General Commentyes, i would like to know too - why 4 and 20 hours, but not 24 hours? btw, it is really a nice song, i love joss' vocal performance, arrangement and melody... that's why i would like to study the lyrics as well.
