Lyrics

5 a.m. Blues

Written By: Patrick Hagerman

Someday I hope your plane crashes
Somewhere near my broken city
And maybe you will call me on the phone

Someday I hope your plane crashes
Somewhere near my broken city
And maybe you will call me on the phone

Meet me for a cup of coffee
Tell me where it was that I went wrong

At 5 a.m. the traffic ain't bad and
Ya can't let go of what ya never really had
Ya can't let go of what ya never really had
Come on!

The headlights of a summer sunrise
Woke me up inside my car
And made me travel home and go to bed

The headlights of a summer sunrise
Woke me up inside my car
And made me travel home and go to bed

Bi-planes flew with banners bearing
All the things I knew I should have said

At 5 a.m. the traffic ain't bad and
Ya can't let go of what ya never really had
Ya can't let go of what ya never really had
Come on!

Love letters are for the lonely
This is mine to you
I hope you don't feel sorry
But I kinda hope you do
I've got my pen and paper
And some memories I can use
And I'll pretend that they're just as good
As your window with a view

I was dreamin and I saw your
Brushes beating helpless canvas
My eyes opened too soon to the dark

I was dreamin and I saw your
Brushes beating helpless canvas
My eyes opened too soon to the dark

Drove my mind around for hours
Couldn't find a single place to park

At 5 a.m. the traffic ain't bad and
Ya can't let go of what ya never really had
Ya can't let go of what ya never really had
Come on!

Someday I hope your plane crashes
Somewhere near my broken city
And maybe you will call me on the phone

Someday I hope your plane crashes
Somewhere near my broken city
And maybe you will call me on the phone

Meet me for a cup of coffee
Tell me where it was that I went wrong

At 5 a.m. the traffic ain't bad and
Ya can't let go of what ya never really had
Ya can't let go of what ya never really had
Come on!
Where did I go wrong?
A-Baby come on!
Come on!
