"24" as written by and Rick Nowels Eizabeth Grant....
There's only 24 hours in a day
And half as many ways for you to lie to me, my little love
There's only 24 hours in a day
And half of those, you lay awake
With thoughts of murder and carnage

If you lie down with dogs, then you'll get fleas
Be careful of the company you keep

There's only 24 hours
And that's not enough
To lie like you lie
Or love like you love

There's only 24 hours in a day
And half of those you lay
Between the sheets with me, my lying love
There's only 24 hours, so you'd say
For most of them you pay
For all the things they paid you for, my love

If you lie down with dogs, then you'll get fleas
Be careful of the ones you choose to leave

There's only 24 hours
And that's not enough
To lie like you lie
Or love like you love

Give me your heat
Give me your diamonds
You hit that street
And my crooked lust
You count to three
While they're all dying
You're hard to reach
You're cold to touch

    General CommentI'm convincing myself she wrote this for a James Bond film

    Cause this one seems the least 'Lana like' from honeymoon.

    Otherwise its talking about a lover who always leaves and comes back to her but she knows he's been seeing other people maybe and neglecting her while only seeing her a day at a time (24 hours ) and leaving again? "if you lay down with dogs you'll get fleas" "be careful of the company you keep/the ones you choose to leave"

    And when she tries to get him to stay he's just "hard to reach, cold to touch"
