Insomnia

4am we meet again
Where shadows creep as people sleep
Spiders crawl down from the wall
And silverfish do as they please
Mischief making, such a ball
I’m on my knees
Free fall

4am we meet again
Where time is halved as people snore
Creatures sniff around outside
And little lights up in the sky
Shooting past me as I hide
I don’t know why
I cried

4am we meet again
Where bodies rest as people dream
Party animals roll home
And tiny sounds prick up my ears
Probably it’s just the wind
But all these years
I sinned

4am we meet again
Where songbirds praise as people rest
Maybe some awaken now
And go to work or far away
Soon the world will take full swing
What could this day
Now bring

Sleepy eyes
A tired head
And then
I meet you back in bed
