I've never had insomnia before
Well, maybe once, but was it really insomnia? I can't be sure
Sleep has always come easy to me
Like a hungry dog looking for a treat
Now I watch the dreaded clock take my time
But was it ever really mine?
I imagine falling into a peaceful sleep
I want it so bad I could weep
I want it so bad, I get so angry when it doesn't come!
I'll fall asleep for a few minutes then wake up numb
Maybe it's not insomnia, now that I think about it
Maybe it's just my anxiety chopping at the bit
But is it really anxiety? I cannot be sure
Maybe it's just all the pressure
To figure things out
I don't even know what I'm talking about
I really need to see a doctor
So I can know for sure
It isn't that deep
I just want some ******* sleep.
