Why does my brain wake up when I wanna sleep?
It just won't settle and count those sheep
1,2,3....no even the sheep have left in despair
There's only so many times they can jump over a fence to be fair
Overthinking is the worst thing I can do
my whole life suddenly comes into review
I half expect an episode of This Is Your Life
with the good bits taken out and just left with the strife
What's the point of worrying in the middle of the night?
Those worries dig in like an annoying parasite
It's not as if anything can be done at silly o'clock
it's sleep I need so let me restock
It's daft stuff that keeps me awake
from 'did I buy toilet rolls?' to an unpaid bill giving me a headache
I've actually shopped online in the early hours
or given up on sleep, gone to the market and bought some flowers
It is amazing what you can do to pass some time
until the brain relaxes again and all is fine
I'm not gonna get stressed or feel any sadder
Nothing is going to stop me sleeping tonight not even me bladder
