NIGHTS.

NIGHTS.

The nights are long and oh so quiet,

But sleep it does not come.

I read until my eyes bleed tears,

But sleep it does not come.

Thank god for ticking clocks,

The heartbeat of a home,

But sleep it does not come.

The nights are dark, and the thoughts are weary,

Yet sleep it does not come.

The pills are strong, and cut so deep,

Yet sleep it does not come.

Soon the new day dawns,

Yet sleep it does not come.

Oh, endless nights, it seems that way,

Yet sleep it does not come.

Soon it will be tomorrow,

Still sleep it does not come.

Awake, awake, must stay awake!

So sleep will never come.

To stay awake, to stay alive,

Sleep must never come.
