i only want to sleep...

i only want to sleep...

i want to sit in the garden and read one more good book

...most of all I want to sleep. I want to sleep like I slept when I was a boy. Give me that, just one time...

one of these nights, maybe my wish will come true
nothing would please me more than to relieve this sore
lonely nights like this, could I just sleep through it all?
you stole my nights and dreams. I just want them back

when I close my eyes, I see your face at that place
and I can’t go to sleep.
nothing helps. . . no one helps. . . so I just sigh and cry
till the sun rises again and I die a little more again

tomorrow I know will be the same. . . this sleepless game
over and over. . . when will this battle be over?

staying awake is lonely to do. . .
long days like this, must I always wait through it all?
every time I close my eyes, I see your face
every day I go to work, I walk by the same place
people think I want to die, but I don't. I only want
.
