Lyrics: 

Sleep Sleep
Susan Cantey © 2019

I say goodnight and turn on my side
He’s already snoring, I just sigh
I toss and turn, can’t stop my thoughts
I never get the sleep I want

Sleep, sleep, sleep is all I want
Sleep, sleep, sleep is all I want

My tummy’s sour, should I take a pill?
What’s making that shadow on the windowsill?
Did I remember to lock the front door?
What’s that noise? I can’t take this anymore!

Sleep, sleep, sleep is all I want
Sleep, sleep, sleep is all I want

Lord, I pray! Lord, I pray!

Get another cover; close the blind
Ignore the clock when it chimes
Count my breaths from one to ten
Oh no, now I need to pee again.

Sleep, sleep, sleep is all I want
Sleep, sleep, sleep is all I want
Sleep, sleep, sleep is all I want
Sleep, sleep, sleep is all I want

you must be reading my mail. insomnia might be one of the worlds most unrcognized diseases. this is such an accurated description, not only in the lyrics but that guitar feels just like the irritation in my bones that keeps me awake,. and the anxiety of the sleepless rings through your voice.

I'll keep my wife away from this one. There's only one real solution and that's adjoining rooms. Very effective song Susan, love the moaning lamenting 'Sleep" chorus work! Nightmare! EDIT dammit I forgot that posting part of a comment kills the music! Ah well, listen again!

Oh, I have been here! This is so real in how you describe all the thoughts that go through our heads when we can't sleep. Love it!

Haha - universally spoken Susan! One of my greatest battles is waged every night. Will I sleep through this one? Or will I fight it? I think we’re all with you on this one!
