Sleepless Nights

Shadow watching on a darkened wall
Chasing dreams but not closing your eyes to see how they end
Watching a stopped clock to make sure time pasting you by
Stopped by a noise outside and a scream from inside
Reality awakes the thoughts that didn't take place

Shadows becomes a comfort a way of knowing your still here
Wasting dreams wondering how it all came to be
Watching a stopped clock to make sure life cant rewind
Stopped by a light outside and a switch from inside
Reality awakes the day that will scar the next

Shadows give you the excuse to talk to yourself
Remembering dreams and living them in reverse
Watching a stopped clock so all you have is the before
Stopped by life outside and an emotion from inside
Reality awakes the next time for you
