Insomnia

Another night, all trapped in my head
Under the covers, wide awake in my bed
My mind is racing, I just want to sleep
But I can't, my thoughts are running so deep

I fluff up the pillow, change the position which I lay
Why can't I just drift away?
I want to nod off and enjoy a sweet dream
But instead, it's a nightmare, I just want to scream

I toss and I turn, my brain starts to stress
I don't know what to do, no rest for the wicked I guess
And as I resign myself to another night of pain
I turn on some songs, suddenly its morning again
