Waiting for the break of day Searching for something to say Dancing lights againnst the sky Giving up I close my eyes Sitting cross-legged on the floor 25 or 6 to 4 Staring blindly into space Getting up to splash my face Wanting just to stay awake Wondering how much I can take Should have tried to do some more 25 or 6 to 4 Feeling like I ought to sleep Spinning room is sinking deep Searching for something to say Waiting for the break of day 25 or 6 to 4 25 or 6 to 4 Edit Lyrics Edit Wiki Add Video.

He is up late writing and doesn't know Downtown Train - Rod Stewart - Storyteller 1984-1991 he should keep going or not.

Could you elaborate sir please? General Comment I have go agree with Scrappy on this one.
