Mr Sandman and Insomnia

I cannot sleep tonite,
My mind wanders round,
Finding hidden corners,
Messing shit about.
The dawn will be upon me,
Sooner than I’ll know…
And the harshness of the daylight,
Will take away my flo.
But still i’ll meander thru these rooms,
Aimlesly at best…
Distracted at a whim,
And not getting any rest.
Why dont I lay my head down…
And succumb to dreams untold,
Why does the sandman stand me up,
And leave me in the cold….

I cannot sleep most nights,
Nocturnal at the best…
Insomniac to some degree,
But still i need some rest.
Bound to crash and burn,
When the sugar rush runs low…
But still my mind ticks over,
And sleep i just cant go.

Please Mr Sandman…
Will you take me in your arms,
Will you touch this soul with your power,
And soothe me with your charms…
Can you keep away the nightmares,
And the confusion that awaits…
When this soul succumbs to dreamland,
In that subconscious place.

Will you bless me with your tender kiss,
Please Give me sleep,
Your love I miss…
Will you hold me in your relaxin arms,
Can your power finally my mind disarm…

I need your breath to take mine away,
Caress me to that dreamlike place,
And this time Sandman will you stay…
Dont leave after a moments play…
Dont leave my mind so damned awake….
