This is about how I can't sleep. Ever.



Night comes and Iím lost again
I need the sound I heard before
ĎCause Iím just sitting here inside my head,
Waiting for the chance to be a little bit more
Than I already am

In the sunshine you look like a night sky,
At night time you are so bright
Out of reach but close enough to touch
It's not how I thought this would end up
With a voice of envy and a taste of bad luck
Nothing but a waste of time and a crease
In the same blankets we used to hide from the cold
Now all thatís left is this goddamn heat

Itís been years since, since I could admit
That Iím tired, that Iím lost
Been worn out since god knows when
Iím wasting time talking about how I donít know why
My heart tells me to find another way
Another place to get by
Like thatís all I could ever be, is just someone
Who doesnít know how to fix the shit that happens
When I choose to run

But Iíve got friends and books
Even ones that sing the same songs
Never heard their voice, never heard a story
But I can tell itís more than nothing
I donít close my eyes at night to dream anymore
Reality is whatís left for me, and Iíve got plans
To cross this country and do everything I can
Iíll be just like our favorite bands
Always holding on, and telling you what I want
And who I am

ĎCause,
In the sunshine you look like a night sky,
At night time you are so bright
Out of reach but close enough to touch
It's not how I thought this would end up
With a voice of envy and a taste of bad luck
Nothing but a waste of time and a crease
In the same blankets we used to hide from the cold
Now all thatís left is this goddamn heat

I fucking love this. As someone who (probably) suffers from insomnia, I can feel every goddamn emotion in this lyric/poem. I can't sleep most nights and it's really taking its toll on me.

I don't know if you wanted helpful suggestions, but there's a certain green plant that can be smoked and it is the only thing that has ever helped me sleep. And this is coming from a non-stoner (I use it exclusively to sleep).

Haha, I'm glad you can relate. I appreciate the suggestion! But I am actually a recovering drug addict so that would be a bad idea for me, as I used to indulge all too much in the goods at one point.
