insomnia lyrics – various artists

deep in the bosom of the gentle night
is when i search for the light
pick up my pen and start to write
i struggle and fight dark forces
in the clear moonlight without fear
insomnia

i can’t get no sleep

i used to worry
thought i was going mad
in a hurry getting stressed
making excess mess in darkness
no electricity, some thing’s all over me
greasy, insomnia
please release me

and let me dream of making mad love
to my girl on the heath
tearing off tights with my teeth
but there’s no release, no peace
i toss and turn without cease
like a curse, open my eyes and rise like yeast

at least a couple of weeks
since i last slept, kept taking sleepers
but now i keep myself pepped
deeper still that night, i write by candlelight
i find insight fundamental movement

so when it’s black, this insomniac
take an original tack
keep the beast in my nature
under ceaseless attack
i gets no sleep

i can’t get no sleep

i can’t get no sleep

i can’t get no sleep

i need to sleep
i can’t get no sleep

i need to sleep
i can’t get no sleep

i need to sleep
i can’t get no sleep
