What Keeps You Up At Night

  • Yeah, it's like a song playing all night long
    Stuck in my head
    Things I should've done
    Things I could've, should've said
    Forgive and forgetting
    Life's too short to let hate hang around

    Sometimes I wonder, is this the last summer
    I go fishing with my daddy
    In 20 years from now, if I'm still here
    Will my beautiful wife still have me?
    These are the voices, won't leave me alone
    Questions I can't put down

    What keeps you up at night?
    What makes your heartbeat wild?
    What weighs on your mind, leaves you paralyzed?
    What keeps you up at night?
    Alright

    See I believe in God, with all my heart
    Sometimes I doubt and wonder
    And I know that'd break my mamma's heart
    And that weighs on me like thunder
    Are these the best days of my life?
    And when tomorrow comes
    Will the skies open up, and blow my mind?

    What keeps you up at night?
    What makes your heartbeat wild?
    What weighs on your mind, leaves you paralyzed?
    What keeps you up at night?

    What makes you take a stand?
    Wanna get up and dance?
    What makes you laugh, you cry?
    Raise your hands to the sky?
    What keeps you up at night?

    For all the times I've run, the things I've done
    If I've really been forgiven
    Do I really know the real meaning
    Of this beautiful life I'm living?
    Well hell yeah I do, it's my kids
    And what they learn from me
    Will they take the good, or take the bad?

    What keeps you up at night?
    What makes your heartbeat wild?
    What weighs on your mind, leaves you paralyzed?
    What keeps you up at night?

    What makes you take a stand?
    Wanna get up and dance?
    What makes you laugh, you cry?
    Raise your hands to the sky?
    What keeps you up?
    What keeps you up?
    What keeps you up at night?
