    ...last night I laid down
    closed my eyes to sleep
    but at that moment sleep avoided me
    you were not there
    so sleep did not want to be either

    ...i tossed and turned and waited for you to come
    but sleep would not let me rest in peace
    because he could not find you
    sleep took off into the night
    leaving me there
    ...restless


    ...i tried to think of other things
    but you kept haunting me
    i called out to you but i got no answer
    i tried drinking a warm glass of milk, counting sheep
    into the trillions to no avail
    sleep would not appear he just kept searching
    leaving me there
    ...restless

    ...so I got up and paced the hall
    and had a long talk with sleep
    i told him how i needed him
    needed him to come back home to me
    how weary I am, how my life is not right
    with out him in it, showed him the bags under my eyes
    but sleep did not want to hear me
    He said, if you were not here
    then he would not be either
    So sleep kept searching
    and left me
    ...restless
