Itís not the monsters under my bed
Or possible creeps out in the streets
But the fear to dream the same again,
Iím scared to fall asleep.
Hours I lay awake, waiting to fight
Anything to stop me from dreaming
Stop me from seeing death over again
And watch you slowly fade away.
But every night I lose the battle
When my grip starts to weaken, too tired to fight
Sleep captures me in her arms, suffocates me,
And forcing me to create this feared scene.
And Iím alone, I lost again
As I watched you slowly fade awayÖ
Unable to help as my body is claimed
By Sleepís embraceÖ I canít escape
When finally she lets me go
I open my eyes and feel numb, so weak
As my body is trembling, shocks uncontrolled
I lay awake, but again I will fall.
