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
