SLEEPLESS

he had an appetite and twisted vision
what he craves he found in me
a love that to some is not very pretty
appetite you wouldn’t believe
time is a wastin’ and here I am
come to me
what he has over me may only exist in my dreams

this love’s got me tossing and turning
I’m losing my head
liquid seconds that pour into hours

sleepless until morning
sleepless for a thousand years
sleepless no rest for the wicked
sleepless

it wasn’t long before he’d taken over
on his lips the sound of my name
a love that to some may seem kind of crazy
in my flesh he buries his shame
so tired of waiting and here I am
come to me
what he has over me may only exist in my dreams

it’s got me tossing and turning
I’m losing my head
liquid seconds that pour into hours

sleepless until morning
sleepless for a thousand years
sleepless no rest for the wicked
sleepless

this love’s got me tossing and turning
I’m out of my head
liquid seconds that pour into hours

sleepless until morning
sleepless for a thousand years
sleepless no rest for the wicked
sleepless
