Lyrics

SLEEP

I lie here all alone  I'm not the only one in bed

And the memories from long ago awaken in my head

And the little boys I used to love smile as the evening fades

As their faces turn to angry men in this bed I made

 

I wish I may I wish I might 

Get some sleep tonight

I wish I may I wish I might 

Get some sleep tonight

 

Dark and lonely world of mine gives me no reprieve

Til the morning blesses me I can not leave 

And I fight the battles I fight the wars but I never win

I’m searching for redemption of every little sin

 

I wish I may I wish I might 

I wish I may I wish I might 

I wish I may I wish I might 

Get some sleep tonight

 

My body is fading fast but my mind is wide awake

Just for a moments peace I'd give what it takes

And the monsters in my head speak to me in tongues

As they get ready for the party that's just begun

 

I wish I may I wish I might 

I wish I may I wish I might 

I wish I may I wish I might 

Get some sleep tonight

 

I wish I may I wish I might 

I wish I may I wish I might 

I wish I may I wish I might 

Get some sleep tonight

 

Now I lay me down to sleep

I pray the lord my soul to keep 

If I should die before I wake
