American Authors – Counting Down Lyrics

Counting Down By American Authors

This life I choose takes me so far away from you, so far away from you
It’s bittersweet when I look at the screen of my phone, the picture of me and you, I miss every piece of you

The way you fall asleep on the couch at night
Laying in my arms always slows down time
When you drop me off, wish I’d miss my flight
Cuz I hate goodbyes, I hate goodbyes

Oh I can’t wait to see your smile again

It’s been 5 long nights not by your side and I miss your touch
At 4am I call your phone and wake you up, to tell you
3 more days till the 2 of us can finally be 1
I’ve been counting down the hours till I see you, my love

I’ll say it 5 more times no I won’t lie I miss you so much
Only 4 more nights till I get home been long enough, and now there’s
3 more days till the 2 of us can finally be 1
I’ve been counting down the hours till I see you, my love

It feels like years since the very last time I held you and I saw you last, I saw you last
The distance between us has messed with my heart and it fucked with my head, with my head

The way you sing along to your 90’s tunes
When we get so high laughing at cartoons
Drive the coast up north just to chase the view
Wish I could stay with you, wish I could stay with you

It’s been 5 long nights not by your side and I miss your touch
At 4am I call your phone and wake you up, to tell you
3 more days till the 2 of us can finally be 1
I’ve been counting down the hours till I see you, my love

I’ll say it 5 more times no I won’t lie I miss you so much
Only 4 more nights till I get home been long enough, and now there’s
3 more days till the 2 of us can finally be 1
I’ve been counting down the hours till I see you, my love

I’ve been counting down the hours till I see you, my love
I’ve been counting down the hours till I see you, my love

I’m trying to close the distance
I’ll see you any minute
I’m trying to close the distance
I’ll see you any minute
I’ll see you any minute

It’s been 5 long nights not by your side and I miss your touch
At 4am I call your phone and wake you up, to tell you
3 more days till the 2 of us can finally be 1
I’ve been counting down the hours till I see you, my love
