There are many versions of the lyrics of the Song Counting Stars by One Republic at this part

Take that money

Watch it burn

Sing in the river / Sink in the river

The lessons I learned / I've learned / are learned

What's the right lyrics here?

  • If I recall, the lyrics in the version I know vary a bit as the song goes on anyway. And the words are not always distinct. From a point of view of "making sense", 'Sink in the river/the lessons I've learned" make most sense in keeping with the feeling expressed in 'Take that money/watch it burn'

  • We will never know. I have the album but the lyrics aren't in it.
