Sleepless Nights
 
I Lye Down In The Bed
To Try And Rest My Weary Head
I Close My Eyes And Try To Sleep
Thinking To Myself This Is What I Need
I Toss And Turn And Can Not Rest
So I Get Up And Sit At My Desk
As I Sit There In My Chair
I Run My Fingers Through My Hair
I Ask Myself "What Can I Do"
Strangely I Answer Myself "I Haven't A Clue"
I Go To The Kitchen And Get Some Food
Then I Come Back To Watch The Tube
With My Eyes Heavy I Lay Back Down
I Get In The Bed Without Making A Sound
As I Pull The Covers Up Over Me
I Close My Eyes Again To Try And Sleep
Now In This Bed I Here Lay
To Awake Again To Another Day
