When nights turn into pain,
When something niggles at you,
When sleep dances around you,
Yet slumber is not easy to grab.
When drifting off is all you want,
But creepy thoughts crawl in you,
When you want to grab a wink,
But sleep fairy loves to mock.
Break my shackles, I wanna run,
Why such turmoil of own doing,
Life is short and happiness shorter,
Peaceful sleep was a fair weather friend.
