3 AM (3:47)

Cover of Show: A Night in the Life of Matchbox Twenty

From Show: A Night in the Life of Matchbox Twenty and 10 other releases

“3 A.M.” is the third single and the third track from Matchbox Twenty’s debut album Yourself or Someone Like You. This song was written by Rob Thomas and was inspired by his mother’s battle with cancer. When Thomas was 12, his mother was given six months to live. But by the time he left home at 17 she was alive and well. Thomas felt that after her illness, his mother failed to take life seriously, preferring to go and party. This song is about his frustration and loneliness during this time. He chose the time 3 a.m. because this was when the bars shut.

3 A.M.
She say it's cold outside and she hands me my raincoat
She's always worried about things like that
She says it's all gonna end and it might as well be my fault
