about

As someone with mild insomnia, its time we had an anthem..

lyrics

as the sun sets
the day grows dry
ill get into bed and close my eyes

something captures me,
takes hold of my sight,
I’ve grown a love that new
night

up at night late when im ready to sleep,
just gotta close my eyes tight, and count down sheep,
then all the thoughts from the day flood my thoughts,
its like a razor blade, slicing swift, its too damn hot,
never mind im not, maybe im just cold
ill put one leg out, weaving sheet and blanket folds,
Then my eyes spring open, and the fire begins,
Why is it now, and not then, that my day must begin
I get up walk around, I try hard not to pace,
All for naught, I'm just walking and my steps I retrace
That's alright, I didn't want to go to sleep tonight
Too much work, too much thought, all part of my inner fight
and I’m afraid i truly am, the fear is deep inside of me
where will all these thoughts go when i drift off to sleep,
ill remember me from a dream i could have had a tough break,
luckily, just for me, its dawn, and I’m still awake

its four a.m. somewhere

as the sun sets
the day grows dry
ill get into bed and close my eyes

something captures me,
takes hold of my sight,
I’ve grown a love that new
night


and the tossing and the turning, no it never grows old,
i kind of like the insomnia running through my bones
and if someones gonna ask me why I’m so tired,
ill look at em with teary eyes and tell em that I’m really quite wired
never mind I’m not, maybe I’m just weird,
i have the shadow from the night before, its ugly head has reared
and when if find myself stuggling to get this in one take,
ill reboot with some caffeine, maybe you can relate,
relations stop there, its at the ceiling i stare,
with heavy thoughts and heavy hands, and slight fears for nightmares,
i just hope that i will become brave one night, so i can truly be the victor of this tiring inner fight
i don’t wanna be afraid, and thats the truth I’m telling you,
I’m tired of being tired, and my own self abuse
ill be sober, ill be free in my sweet escape,
luckily just for me its dawn, and I’m still awake

luckily just for me its dawn, and I’m still awake(repeated)

its four a.m. somewhere

as the sun sets
the day grows dry
ill get into bed and close my eyes

something captures me,
takes hold of my sight,
I’ve grown a love that new
night
