Sleepless through the night

And once again sleep eludes this night
And once again I tune in to watch ‘the’ big fat panda fight
Can’t understand, there aren’t really scars to tear at me
And yet here I am again, lying restlessly
So many dreams that I know I could see
If only I could close my eyes and wander the night aimlessly
Yet, I guess deservedly, this is what I oughta get
Endless hours in the darkness, lying in my bed
Thinking of days gone by in the life I chose
For betraying those dreams, I once held close
I guess I could tell you that I’ve grown up
But we all know that ain’t true so I guess, I’ll own up
I’m not the one to use my genius and harness it’s force
I’d much rather lay back and watch the river run its course
But I know one day, the water will have tempted me just enough
And in a burst of madness, I’ll go swimming in the rough
So till the day comes, when the time is right
I guess I’m gonna end up lying in the darkness of my bed, sleepless through the night…
