Avenged Sevenfold - 4:00 AM Lyrics




There comes a day when we all find out for ourselves
That once we have the words to say, there's no one left to tell
I know why you're running away.

There's a place where nothing seems to be assembled quite cohesively,
It's all your mind, all your mind
Something little shouldn't feel this way,
We got a million thoughts we can't convey,
It's all your life, all your life!

It's four in the morning, you got one more chance to die
Like beautiful stories the greatest chapters flew right by
There comes a day when we all find out for ourselves
That once we have the words to say, there's no one left to tell
I know why you're running away.

These things don't happen here; another fictional reality
It's all you'll find; all you'll find!
It's just as good as any other day, I'm gonna teach you about mortality
No it's not right, it's not right!

It's four in the morning, you got one more chance to die
Like beautiful stories the greatest chapters flew right by
There comes a day when we all find out for ourselves
That once we have the words to say, there's no one left to tell
I know why you're running away.

In many ways I guess I'll never let you go.
I'm close behind but I've got room here left to grow,
Until our second chance, just enjoy the dance, and find out who we are
(These dreams will never leave you)
Let's find out what we are,
(These dreams will never leave you)
Never leave you asking why.

It's four in the morning, you got one more chance to die
Like beautiful stories the greatest chapters flew right by
There comes a day when we all find out for ourselves
That once we have the words to say, there's no one left to tell
I know why you're running, I know why you're running away!

  25. Ean Thomas

    it'd kick ass to party with A7X

  26. Eat More Chicken

    On my drives on the highway, ima play this at 4:00 am. My new rule.

  27. Berto7x

    Matt's voice is soothing in the beginning of the song. It's even better when complemented with Syn's melody and piano sound at the back

  28. JeneralJitan

    The beginning riff sounds like it could lead right into Strength of the World's

  29. Swampdonkey69 YT

    They really need to release diamonds in the rough. It’s by far their best album.

  30. Epic Dolphin

    This song is similar to lost it all a little bit

    Stefan Matic

    They are both Nightmare bonus tracks.

  31. Misty Dawn Elliott

  36. Big Mike

    WHERE MY EST BOYS AT

  37. Sherm Hart

    What album is this on?

    Max Romero

    Welcome To The Family Single

  38. alevd14

    One of the best A7X songs! Is a shame that just few people know it :(

  39. Joseph Foster

    Someone pointed out that his voice is nasally and I cant get over now

    Tomorrow Awaits

    It's because he used incorrect techniques in his earlier works. Still great for self taught, but before The Stage he recieved professional help to prevent hurting himself again. You can really tell the difference now.

    Dustin Neems

    @Tomorrow Awaits Funny enough, I actually think his vocals on The Stage are his worst output yet. I'm glad that he got training and hopefully he won't have to undergo another surgery, but when he tries to sing in higher keys it just... doesn't work for me.

    Stefan Matic

    @Tomorrow Awaits This is not true he hurt his voice in 2003/04 had a surgery and started working with Ron Anderson who is considered one of the best if not the beast vocal coach in the world. Since than he did become a little more nasally but developed a technique that made him one of the best singers in the world.

    Berto7x

    @Dustin Neems luckily I'm not the only one who thinks that. His voice is so strained and awful there, It's gotten worse since self-titled release I think.

  40. Isaiah Ayala

    I’m the only family that knows that song.

  41. mongz79

    a7x is the only band where it can go from almost heavy metal to soft rock within seconds and still sound beautiful.

  42. Ian Rogers

    51 soccer moms disliked this

  43. Mr Vengeance

    Fun fact: I've listened A7X since 2005, but I NEVER heard this song.

    Jordan Diehl

    Jstage D Yeah I just discovered the Diamonds In the rough album the other day lol

    Dana Renée

    I'm going to to come back to this comment at 4 am

  50. Zachary Kahl

    "There comes a day when we all find out for ourselves that once we have the words to say, there's no one left to tell" something about that statement that is as beautifully profound as it is true

  51. Carolina Jim

    Confirmamos canción más infravalorada del grupo?

  52. Partyondudes

    "Like a beautiful story the greatest chapters flew right by" I don't know what it is but it's the best part

  53. Krillitfast 21

    If people who like rap pop and country music come here why dislike it you know your not going to like it and it could make a7x sad we aren’t liking their music but we do

    Krillitfast 21

    Michael Myers wtf

  73. Dreyke Smith

    Ok, so metal head question, the first three notes of the actual electric guitar, there is a song that plays those three notes in a rift going down in pitch as like, the main rift, and I can't for the life of me remember what song it is, any help?

    rob bermudez

    Sounds like a bullet for my valentine song... hearts burst into fire maybe?

    Brady White

    Dreyke Smith I think Strength of the World is the song you’re looking for

    Dreyke Smith

    @Brady White yes, it was, thank you so much, I can't believe it didn't dawn on me, and I was sure that it was either avenged or metallica, that was bugging me cause I could only think of the rift

  74. First Name Last Name

    Just found this at 4 am

  75. Tyler Snow

    A7X 💀BATS

  76. Tristan Gorman

  77. Colt

    Fun fact: The Rev actually came up with the line "It's four in the morning, you got one more chance to die" one time when he arrived to the studio when they were writing the album.

    SMOKY GRAFFITI BOYS

    Rip The Rev❤️

  81. Tommy Oliver

    Song had me headbanging hard

    Tommy Oliver

    Liam Porter naw thats animal abuse i headbang without killing chickens

    Tommy Oliver

    Liam Porter now if you wanna fight 1v1 me on mw3 and ill kill yr gay ass while headbanging to this song

  82. Pablo Nixon

    if you haven't noticed notice that bass line is the same as shepherd of fire towards the beginning of the song.

  83. Nextgenben

    Ima say the songs meaning is that the rev died 4 in the morning

    Colt

    The name of the song comes from one time during the making of the album when he got to the studio and yelled "It's four in the morning, you got one more chance to die!" But from what I've heard, he may have actually died a bit later than 4 A.M because the paramedics tried to revive him when they got to the hospital and weren't successful. The band would've known much earlier if he had died around that time.

    Izaya

    The song is about contemplating suicide to join a loved one that passed away

  84. Hyper Orso

    On a 30+ hour drive rn and it's 4am

  89. ThatWas EC

    Oh man when the guitars come in my adrenaline starts pumping!

  90. Takoda Hager

    Why was this not on the album?

    TheRevX

    Takoda Hager it was on the Welcome to the Family 3 song album rather than Nightmare. Not sure why but I heard that originally this was supposed to be in place of Welcome to the Family on Nightmare

  91. Jason From Guitar Center

    Why Wasn't This Released On The Album??

    Brad Donovan

    I guess the band didn't think it was good enough. I think the song is pretty great though.

    SlasheZ Tech

    Written before most of the songs in Nightmare I guess

    Happy 1208

    It was an exclusive from diamond in the rough from live in the LBC

  97. Matt Vengeance

    I love this little EP! I remember getting it on my kindle when it first came out years ago and listening to it nonstop. 4:00 AM is one of the most underrated A7X songs, and the artwork on this EP is one of my favorite A7X cover arts.

    Mason Sanderson

    I saw the blue numbers and clicked it thinking it was part of the song you liked but I read the rest of your comment

  98. Scr1llongoz

    why do they keep re-uploading like almost all of their songs?

  99. Mackie Yvalian

    I'm going to see them for the first time on the 28th also my first concert
