lyrics

[5/8]
I just got home from working all day,
Don't wanna discuss it, nothing to say.
I'm terribly tired, barely can stay awake.

Slip on pajamas, climb into bed,
I fluff up my pillow, lay back my head,
And stare at the ceiling, feeling as if I'm dead.

I only need to find,
Some way to clear my mind,
I want to fall asleep.

[3/4]
Hush! Take a deep breath, close your eyes.
Sweet dreams will find you, ere sunrise.

[5/8]
Lying in bed and trying to fall asleep,
Please don't tell me I should be counting sheep,
Cause I've tried that -- it doesn't work for me.

Tossing and turning throughout the night.
I lay on my left side, then on my right.
It looks like somebody left on the bathroom light.

I can't get any rest,
'Cause I am far too stressed!
I want to fall asleep!

[3/4]
Hush! Take a deep breath, close your eyes.
Sweet dreams will find you, ere sunrise.

[5/8]
I can't describe how helpless I'm feeling,
'Round and around my mind keeps on reeling,
From all the things that I have been dealing with.

Why are my brain and body still warring?
Why aren't I sleeping? Why aren't I snoring?
It's almost five o'clock in the morning now.

Here comes the sun's first ray,
Starting a brand new day.
I never fell asleep!
