Insomnia

B/c of U

Most nights I can't sleep.

Most nights my thoughts become too deep.

Most nights I cry and cry, weep and weep.

Most nights I can't sleep.


Some nights I don't want to sleep.

I just want to think.

Some nights thinking leads to drinking.

Some nights I don't want to think.

I just want to sleep.

But instead of sleeping, I stay up 

until dawn silently weeping. 

Some nights I want to sleep forever,

Some nights my brain says "never."


Every night I think of you.

Every night I want to drown

my brain in your image.

Every night I hate you.

Every night I love you.

Every fucking night

I can't sleep

and it's

all

because

of 

you.
