Sleeping with the lights on

basically i wanted to write a song aobut sleep

eyes closed
nowhere to go
stuck in a place, no one can dream to get out of
yet it’s over so quick
with a chance of déjà vu
all that’s forgotten
will come back again so soon
when you enter the vile land once more
in parallel with the moon.

We’ve just started this game
and I’m already winning
a thousand dreams and you still haven’t left
‘cause we live in a world where you’ll always exist
where you’ll never be forgotten
whenever I close my eyes
and rest my head on all that cotton
I’m taken to a place
where the only thing that doesn’t leave
is your perfect pretty face

can you help me with my addiction?
I’m addicted to staying asleep
you’re the reason I go to bed so early
and then don’t wake up till late
you’re the reason I’m always last to work
your the reason I missed my date.
I really wish I had a little more patience
but I just can’t wait to see you again
some people call me lazy
and they think that I’m insane.

We’ve just started this game
and I’m already winning
a thousand dreams and you still haven’t left
‘cause we live in a world where you’ll always exist
where you’ll never be forgotten
whenever I close my eyes
and rest my head on all that cotton
I’m taken to a place
where the only thing that doesn’t leave
is your perfect pretty face

so where’s my insomnia now?
Something I could only dream of having
if only my dreams weren’t diseased by you
not that I want you to stop, just want you to start sharing
ration out my chimera
my brain knows I’m never gunna be with her
so why does this unrealistic notion occur

We’ve just started this game
and I’m already winning
a thousand dreams and you still haven’t left
‘cause we live in a world where you’ll always exist
where you’ll never be forgotten
whenever I close my eyes
and rest my head on all that cotton
I’m taken to a place
where the only thing that doesn’t leave
is your perfect pretty face
your face is a picture
a captured moment of time
a moment that never leaves my mind.

The End
