I can't fall asleep
With you on my mind tonight
I need to lay down
I can't close my eyes
And drift into sweet slumber
I lay my head down
I can't stop my thoughts
From racing vigorously
Tonight, I'm in bed
I finally give in to sleep...
It took a while... To count all of my sheep
In my mind's eye... I'm a shepherd by the sheep's side
Like David in the bible... Except I'm on a different ride...
Which means I can't emphasize with the hardships he has been through...
Only my own...
But that's nothing special and new...
But, I wish I can sparkle anew
I Lay Down
Waters...but that's nothing new...
those thoughts of depression
Are as fresh as dew...it sticks to me
