It's Official...I'm WIDE awake.

and I see no sign of sleep coming my way.

it's way too late to think of
someone I would call now
the neon signs got tired
red eye flights help the stars out
I'm safe in a corner
just hours before me

I'm waking with the roaches
the world has surrendered
I'm dating ancient ghosts
(the ones I made friends with)
the comfort of fireflies
long gone before daylight

and if I had one wish fulfilled tonight
I'd ask for the sun to never rise
if God lent his voice to me to speak
I'd say: «go to bed, world!»

I've always been too lame
to see what's before me
and I know nothing sweeter than
champagne from last new year's
sweet music in my ears
and a night full of no fear

but if I had one wish fulfilled tonight
I'd ask for the sun to never rise
if God passed the mike to me to speak
I'd say: «stay in bed world

...sleep in peace!»

I fell asleep for a couple hours on the sofa, but now it's 5:30am and I'm wide awake too

nice quote.

I never sleep.

If I do it is about 4 hours a night.

Too much to think about and do, I am only getting older...
