My Random Thoughts and Observations

Sleepless Night, You Aren't My Friend

Hello darkness my old friend
You've come to taunt me once again
I can't recall my last good sleep
My racing thoughts could make me weep
Nighttime, nighttime, go away
I never liked this game we play.

 

The sound of silence fills my home
The noises say I'm not alone
Tinnitus ringing in my ears
The snores and creaks I do not fear
Nighttime, nighttime, go away
I never liked this game we play.

 

My clock has joined the midnight chant
The time clicks through its taunting rant
My sleepless night will end by five
And yet my mind is still alive
Nighttime, nighttime, go away
I never liked this game we play.

 

It's torture but it's my own time
I tell myself that life is fine
The sleep, I chase outruns my gait
But then I nod off way too late
Nighttime, nighttime, go away
I never liked this game we play.

 

The hours left are just a few
The darkness fades to skies of blue
My clock demands I face the day
It' time to rise and earn my pay

My sleepy eyes just want to close
Throughout the day I'll want to dose.


Hello darkness my old friend
Tonight, we'll do this all again
