Autumn, Emilie - 4 o'Clock Lyrics




4 o'Clock
4 o'Clock
Never let me sleep
I close my eyes and pray
For the garish light of day
Like a frightened child I run
From the sleep that never comes

4 o'Clock
4 o'Clock
Out of bed I creep
To climb this tower of shame
But the hour's still the same
Only madness knows my name
At 4 o'Clock

4 o'Clock
4 o'Clock
Never let me sleep
I close my eyes and pray
For the garish light of day
Like a frightened child I run
From the sleep that never comes

4 o'Clock
4 o'Clock
Out of bed I creep
To climb this tower of shame
But the hour's still the same
Only madness knows my name
At 4 o'Clock

Why can we never go back to bed?
Whose is the voice ringing in my head?
Where is the sense in these desperate dreams?
Why should I wake when I'm half past dead?

Sure as the clock keeps its steady chime
Weak as I walk to its steady rhyme
Ticking away from the ones we love
So many girls, so little time

Why can we never go back to bed?
Whose is the voice ringing in my head?
Where is the sense in these desperate dreams?
Why should I wake when I'm half past dead?

4 o'Clock
4 o'Clock
Never let me sleep
I close my eyes and pray
For the garish light of day
Like a frightened child I run
From the sleep that never comes

4 o'Clock
4 o'Clock
Out of bed I creep
To climb this tower of shame
But the hour's still the same
Only slumber never came
Only madness knows my name
At 4 o'Clock

Why can we never go back to bed?
Whose is the voice ringing in my head?
Where is the sense in these desperate dreams?
Why should I wake when I'm half past dead?

Sure as the clock keeps its steady chime
Weak as I walk to its steady rhyme
Ticking away from the ones we love
So many girls, so little time

Why can we never go back to bed?

  1. Luca Uttó

    My insomnia has been at it's worst ever in the last few months, and i just remembered this song...

  2. aoitennyo

    My friend sent this to me and I’ve never listened to it before and it is, completely coincidentally, now 4:00 AM.

  3. Agustin Juarez-Rangel

    Only madness knows my name at 4' 0 clock

  4. Serasia

    "So many girls, so little time"... Uh? Is this like Gothic Lolita?

    TheXmauZ

    Is sad to admit but yes

  5. Kay Zaine

    I'm an insomniac who needs to wake at 4 am for work.

  6. Neon

    5:45, 5:45, never let me sleep...
    I close my eyes and pray,
    For the garish light of day,
    Like a frightened child I run,
    from the sleep that never comes...

    Sarah Mackay

    Yes, this is the song I was looking for! Yes!

  9. Complete.__.Trash

    4 o'clock I'm in my bed watching YouTube

  10. No Name

    she is the most amazing singer I have ever heard

  11. The Pastel Candy Cat In Wonderland

    Listening to this at 4 0 clock in the morning, as an insomniac, it is so relatable and just insane.

  12. Mahreen Biersack

    listen this song at 0.5....its a nightmare... O.O

  13. Devon Avery McAllister

    As an insomniac I think I connect most with this song.

    PearlyBird

    Let's make an insomniac squad

  14. Rosethemad

    listening to this at 4'o clock in the morning is a special experience...  I love this song though.

    Kissa Ukkonen

    especially when you can't sleep

  15. Ellie X

    I love the madness in this song. The sense of insanity and nightmarish-ness caused by the insomnia that seemingly comes with the hour of 4 o'clock feels so real and is so skillfully created; I can really feel the maddening sleeplessness that I picture gradually seeping into an insomniac's mind as wide-awake hours of darkness tick slowly by. I feel like there's so much more to this song than just the insomnia that I imagine when I listen to it, and in fact if anybody else understands the full meaning of this song I'd love to hear it explained. But even regardless of the eerie lyrics or even the music itself, it's that feeling I get from this song that makes it for me. It just has this crazed and dreamlike quality that for some reason reminds me of Alice In Wonderland, which is one of my favorite stories. I'm just so intrigued by this right now.

    +Ellie X I'm pretty sure it's talking about the insomnia that often comes in a mania, when someone is bipolar. You want to sleep, but your body won't let you because you're out of control. Something like that. It's not just the insomnia, it's the mania.

  16. Mochi Cat

    0 dislikes? That's something you don't see everyday. But, It's an amazing song. I don't blame the votes! <3

  17. TimeVamp

    Am I the only person who think this could be made into an epic dubstep/techno/house song? I so deeply adore this original but I would love to see this at a fast pace as well.

    thumble360

    Listen at 1.5 speed XD

    Sunnie

    I feel like this comment is cancerous.

  18. Kaitlyn Crow

    This song has to be influenced by The Phantom Of The Opera. The "garish light of day" line and 2:09... it sounds like it <3

    Dawnofdark24

    I was thinking the exact same thing :D

    Crispy PSX

    @Kaitlyn Crow The chorus sounds like it has elements of the song in it too.

  19. Kami Baker

    I can't wait to hear this in her musical

    Raven Young

    I can't wait to SEE her musical!!! I'm so excited for it!!!

    Jamie Dutton

    @Raven Young  I know me too 

    Angie Panda

    details please

  20. douchefuckmcgee

    Reminds me of American McGee's Alice.

  21. WinningSidekick

    Not to mention the whole "garish light of day"-line.

  22. Courtney Grier

    2:08....totally Phantom of the Opera...
    I'm a Nightwish fan too, by the way!

  23. WhiteNightFantasy178

    totally right :P

  24. Ian

    Could I guess by your username that you are a nightwish fan, too? :)

    great song, by the way.
