I Need to Sleep

I need to sleep, my brain is fried

My emotions are bottled up inside

I’ve gone too long, I can’t turn back

God, I wish it could all just fade to black

Liars are those who say I haven’t tried


If only I could sleep and dream

Then depressed I would no longer seem

Then I could finally get some rest

I need to sleep


I’m not the only one who needs to

There are many others that sleep does beguile

This lack of sleep is testing me, it’s quite the hellish trial

And as to moments of rest, I’ve had few

I need to sleep
