2 The track basically wrote itself, and includes some of the front man's favorite lines from the album, like, “Everything that kills me makes me feel alive.” He wrote the chorus — another one of his favorite lines — for anyone who loses sleep wondering how they’re going to be able to afford their rent or provide for their family. “A lot of time I just lay in bed awake, stressing out,” Ryan Tedder said. “Everybody does it. And I just thought, I can’t wait until I’m counting stars and not counting dollars anymore. Things will be so much better.”

3 Let’s make a list of stressors: Talk about a stressor in your life. What do you do to relax?

4 [Chorus] Lately I been, I been losing sleep Dreaming about the things that we could be But baby, I been, I been prayin' hard Said no more counting dollars We'll be counting stars Yeah, we'll be counting stars [Verse 1] I see this life Like a swinging vine Swing my heart across the line In my face is flashing signs Seek it out and ye shall find

5 Old, but I'm not that old Young, but I'm not that bold And I don't think the world is sold I'm just doing what we're told I feel something so right By doing the wrong thing And I feel something so wrong By doing the right thing I couldn't lie, couldn't lie, couldn't lie Everything that kills me makes me feel alive

6 [Chorus] Lately I been, I been losing sleep (hey!) Dreaming about the things that we could be But baby, I been, I been prayin' hard (hey!) Said no more counting dollars We'll be counting stars Lately I been, I been losing sleep (hey!) Dreaming about the things that we could be But baby, I been, I been prayin' hard (hey!) Said no more counting dollars We'll be, we'll be counting stars

7 [Verse 2] I feel the love And I feel it burn Down this river every turn Hope is our four letter word Make that money Watch it burn Old, but I'm not that old Young, but I'm not that bold And I don't think the world is sold I'm just doing what we're told And I feel something so wrong By doing the right thing I couldn't lie, couldn't lie, couldn't lie Everything that drowns me makes me wanna fly

8 [Chorus] Lately I been, I been losing sleep (hey!) Dreaming about the things that we could be But baby, I been, I been prayin' hard Said no more counting dollars We'll be counting stars Lately I been, I been losing sleep (hey!) Dreaming about the things that we could be But baby, I been, I been prayin' hard (hey!) Said no more counting dollars We'll be, we'll be counting stars Oh, oh, oh. [Bridge 4x:] Take that money Watch it burn Sink in the river The lessons I learned Everything that kills me makes me feel alive
