Oooh Look At The Time

So, for no reason, I woke up at about 1.45am. Dark, silent, snoring dogs, snoring Jo. And I laid there, fidgeting, trying to get comfortable. Now it's half three and I quit.

Faithless: Insomnia
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, fight dark forces
In the clear moon light
Without fear... insomnia
I can't get no sleep

I used to worry, thought I was goin' mad in a hurry
Gettin' stress, makin' excess mess in darkness
No electricity, something's all over me, greasy
Insomnia please release me and let me dream of
Makin' mad love to my girl on the heath
Tearin' 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 takin' sleepers
But now I keep myself pepped
Deeper still, that night I write by candle light
I find insight, fundamental movement, uh
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, although I get no sleep
I need to sleep, although I get no sleep
Have to laugh, really. I'm tired, but just cannot get to sleep. Pah. Not angry, stressed, sick, not even really hurting much. Bed was comfortable, clean sheets, soft, nice duvet, Jo was snuggled on me...
