When darkness descends, and I cannot sleep,
I bury my head in the sheets, and I weep
Dreams are just fleeting, but life is too real
I cannot escape it, nor deny what I feel
The moonlight is too bright, an unwelcome guest
Which invades my thoughts as I try to rest
There’s too much to deal with, my whole body aches
I yearn for escape, but I stay awake
The stars in their patterns align in the sky
Do you think I’ll become one, after I die?
Life is a nightmare, but nightmares are dreams
And dreams are just visions which aren’t what they seem
I wish I could stop it, this throbbing, this ache
Should I try falling asleep, or it is better to wake?
The moon’s passing over, and the hours flash by
One, two, three, four, the sun appears in the sky
I cover my eyes in a last-ditch attempt
To escape for a moment, and find solace in rest
At least temporarily, for life must go on
I can’t escape it; it will drag me along
But on that one day when I finally fall asleep
And do not awaken, please, I beg you, don’t weep
Because I have found solace in a dream-world afar
And, who knows? You might see me, up there with the stars.
