Two AM.


When the clock strikes two
And everyone else is asleep
In this quiet little house
There's not a sneeze or a peep
When the clock strikes two 
The world goes silent 
And dark as the dead coals in the grate 
When the clock strikes two 
And the raindrops pitter on the the tin can roof
Telling me 
"Child go get some sleep" 
When the clock strikes two 
And I've still got oh so much to do 
I sit there clicking away 
Mesmerizing screen illuminating my face 
When the clock strikes two 
And I know what to do 
I just don't want to do it 
It's only two I think
It's not that bad
But the hour passes in a blink 
When the clock strikes three
Thank the lords 
Bless the saints 
I'm asleep 
Somewhere off in my dreamland 
Dancing with moonbeams 
And singing with stars
When the clock strikes three.
