Scared of Dreams is a song I wrote a while ago, when I was having nightmares and was too scared of what I would dream to sleep.

Scared of Dreams

Shadows under my eyes
Purple, showing sleepless nights
Eyelids drooping,
But I force them to open wide

'Cause I know it's bad for me
But I just won't let myself sleep

It's getting late
But I'm still wide awake
I should go to sleep
But I'm scared of what I'll dream
Sun's about to rise
I still don't close my eyes
I'm scared of what I'll see
Oh, please don't fall asleep

Moonlight and shining stars
Glowing, standing out in the dark
Crickets chirping,
A lullaby from afar

And I stare up at the ceiling
Oh, I wish I could stop this feeling

It's getting late
But I'm still wide awake
I should go to sleep
But I'm scared of what I'll dream
Sun's about to rise
I still don't close my eyes
I'm scared of what I'll see
Oh, please don't fall asleep

Pinch myself, once or twice
Twist and turn from side to side
No matter what, can't shut my eyes

It's getting late
But I'm still wide awake
I should go to sleep
But I'm scared of what I'll dream
Sun's about to rise
I still don't close my eyes
I'm scared of what I'll see
Oh, please, just don't let me fall asleep.
