lyrics

In his darkest hour
Closing the door behind him
Longing for a pancake
In this hour when no one is around
at 3am

At 3am were you sleeping
When the pancake man was creeping
To the 24 hour diner
Life is pounding at your door
Demanding that you live it more
While you're sleeping
It's 3am

It's a short walk up the hill
To a road that he finds empty
A skyline to the north
A skylines never the same at 3am
There is a 15 minute wait
But that doesn't stop him
He needs his gingerbread man pancake
Gingerbread man pancake
At his favorite seat at the bar
Everyone expects him at 3am

At 3am were you sleeping
When the pancake man was creeping
To the 24 hour diner
Life is pounding at your door
Demanding that you live it more
While you're sleeping
It's 3am

Finishing his last bite
Pausing to ponder life
Leaving a 10 and some change
And back out into the night
Across the empty road
And back down the hill

The moon beaming through the trees
He falls into bed at 3am

At 3am were you sleeping
When the pancake man was creeping
To the 24 hour diner
Life is pounding at your door
Demanding that you live it more
While you're sleeping
It's 3am
3am
3am
3am
3am
3am
3am
