James Songbook - 2. Insomnia

Insomnia

Insomnia haunts me and taunts me,
Mind racing and chasing details of the day.
Plans of tomorrow, no time to borrow,
Always behind as time grinds,
Past and future together in the breathless present.

I am so lost, I don't know the cost,
Of the things that I've been or the things that I've seen,
At night, they are burning bright,
Restless azure darkness impaled,
By the fires that rend the eternal night.

There is no peace when the wars never cease,
even though its been over for decades.
I close my eyes and I am there,
Once again in the fire of pain and desire,
The unending battles still rage.

Beware, my friend, not to live too long,
And see entirely too much shit,
Because at night, it will never feel right,
And it can be a hell to live with it.
