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

Oh 4am, is the time when you were mine
frozen in deepest sleep, for only i to keep
now there aint no hiding place on earth
that loneliness aint been first

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

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.
