"Counting Stars" is a song by the band OneRepublic. It is one of the band's most successful songs.[1]

Cimorelli covered the song and uploaded the video to their YouTube on November 6, 2013. Christina, Lisa, Lauren and Joey were involved in the arrangement, production, recording, filming, direction, and editing.[2] A message in the video says it was arranged, filmed, recorded and edited by only Christina and Lisa.

In the beginning of the video, a message states that no autotune, melodine, or pitch correction was added to the song and it was "vocals and drums only."

Lyrics

Lauren:
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive

Lisa:
I see this life
Like a swinging vine
Swing my heart across the line
In my face is flashing signs
Seek it out and ye shall find

Lauren:
Old, but I'm not that old
Young, but I'm not that bold
And I don't think the world is sold
I'm just doing what we're told

Katherine:
I feel something so right
By doing the right thing
And I feel something so wrong
By doing the wrong thing
I couldn't lie, couldn't lie, couldn't lie
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive

Lisa:
Lately I been, I been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I been, I been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars

Amy:
Baby, I been, I been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
And, baby, I been, I been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be, we'll be counting stars

Dani:
I feel the love
And I feel it burn
Down this river every turn
Hope is our four letter word
Make that money
Watch it burn

Lauren:
Old, but I'm not that old
Young, but I'm not that bold
And I don't think the world is sold
I'm just doing what we're told

Lisa:
And I feel something so wrong
By doing the wrong thing
I couldn't lie, couldn't lie, couldn't lie
Everything that drowns me makes me wanna fly

Christina:
Lately I been, I been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
But, baby, I been, I been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars

Katherine:
Lately I been, I been losing sleep
Dreaming about the things that we could be
Baby, I been, I been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be, we'll be counting stars

Dani:
Oh, oh, oh
Take that money
Watch it burn
Sink in the river
The lessons I learned

Dani, Lauren, and Amy:
Take that money
Watch it burn
Sink in the river
The lessons I learned

Christina, Katherine, Amy, Lauren, and Dani:
Take that money
Watch it burn
Sink in the river
The lessons I learned

Cimorelli:
Take that money
Watch it burn
Sink in the river
The lessons I learned

Everything that kills me makes me feel alive

And, baby, I been, I been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars

Dreaming about the things that we could be
But baby, I been, I been prayin' hard
Said no more counting dollars
We'll be counting stars
