"4 Leaf Clover" as written by Michael Clark Gurley, Davis Leduke and Chris Sorensen....
Father stumbles through the door, he's late again
He says he needs his space and a drink
Mother's in the kitchen, washing everything and nothing
As she stares into the sink

Sister's in the bathroom, killing spiders
Dreaming up new ways to fool her new shrink
And I am watching television, nothing's on
But it's great when you don't want to think

Please wake me up when it's all over, yeah
Tearing apart a four leaf clover

Every night that I lay down my head
I try to sleep, but I just stare into the black
Forgotten golden trophies upon my shelf from long ago
Sometimes they take me back

Way back to a time when lawns were mowed
And every window seemed to shine, instead of crack
It's so hard for lost wolves to find their way back home
Once separated from their pack

Please wake me up when the party's over
Tearing apart a four leaf clover

Oh, yeah, yeah
When I look back so far from now
At the happiness I never found
And all those days play on and on, oh

Father stumbles through the door, he's late again
He says he needs his space and a drink
Mother's in the kitchen washing everything and nothing
As she cries into the sink

Please wake me up when the party's over, yeah
Tearing apart a four leaf clover
Please wake me up when it's all over, yeah
Tearing apart a four leaf clover
