Insomnia

lyrics

When the city sleeps

What’s the thing that keeps you up at night?

And I know you wanna dream

And tap into the repressed sights and scenes

Of yesterday’s happenings

Well I’ve wandered down these halls

Frozen in time like a cold dark night

this is still life it seems.

Well I’d tell you where I’m going

If I knew the way.

So one more drink I’ll set aside.

To pass these lonely hours.

So one more drink I’ll set aside

And maybe rest my tired eyes tonight.

Well the night grows old

As the shadows from the moon they grow greater still.

My mind runs like the wind

Racing through those thoughts that I’d left behind

In the cob webs of my mind.

Well it’s about high time

The wind settled down and the lights dimmed low

And the time began to fade.

Well I’d tell you where I’m going

Oh, If I knew the way.

So one more drink, I’ll set aside

To pass these lonely hours

So one more drink, I’ll set aside

And maybe rest my weary eyes tonight

To feel the bitter breeze

Or a lover’s touch to cure my mind’s disease.

But lonesome all the while

Staring at the ceiling so dull and white

Maybe God can hear me sigh.

I’ve counted every star

And thought and every thought about where you are

And where I ought to be.

And I’ll tell you where I’m going

If I knew the way.

So one more drink, I’ll set aside

To pass these lonely hours

So one more drink, I’ll set aside

And maybe get some sleep tonight

So one more drink, I’ll set aside

And maybe get some sleep tonight
