eyes sealed shut with the hope of tomorrow
mind idles by, no intention to follow
sleep comes to all who have no one to think of
and those with some far-reaching visions of true love
you've got me up all the night through to morning
you've got my brain firing off without warning
laying beside your dark shape in my vision
feeling right by wasn't all my decision
restless insomnia takes darkness from thought
replacing the joy with my worry, hard-fought
are we really right here or is this my first trick?
how do I care if my mind may be sick?
dark fleeting clouds surround all thought and reason
taking the form of my least-favourite season
pink stains the sheets and my clothes mark the floor
I will never know 'till we're at death's dark door.
