"3 A.M." as written by Brian Yale, Rob Thomas, John Goff and John Joseph Stanley....
She says it's cold outside and she hands me my raincoat
She's always worried about things like that
She says it's all gonna end and it might as well be my fault
And she only sleeps when it's raining
And she screams and her voice is straining

She says baby
It's 3 am I must be lonely
When she says baby
Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes
Says the rain's gonna wash away I believe it

She's got a little bit of something, God it's better than nothing
And in her color portrait world she believes that she's got it all
She swears the moon don't hang quite as high as it used to
And she only sleeps when it's raining
And she screams and her voice is straining

She says baby
It's 3 am I must be lonely
When she says baby
Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes
Says the rain's gonna wash away I believe it

She believes that life is made up of all that you're used to
And the clock on the wall has been stuck at three for days, and days
She thinks that happiness is a mat that sits on her doorway
But outside it's stopped raining

She says baby
It's 3 am I must be lonely
When she says baby
Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes
Says the rain's gonna wash away I believe it

    General CommentDude, this is a Matchbox Twenty song! Well, I guess it's because Rob Thomas was originally part of Tabitha's Secret. Personally I've never listened to TS's version of the song, but MB20's is GREAT. I imagine they're probably about the same though.

    General CommentI have a live piano version where thomas says he wroe it about his mother dying of cancer.

    sorta made me think of a person who has fallen in love with a manic depressive.
