Liner Notes: 

This is what sprung to mind for the skirmish theme of "Sleep".

Thanks to @vivalarayna for hosting and for the skirmish theme.

Oh regarding the word "chamomile" used in the lyric, where I come from the mile is pronounced like "meal" so even if your dialect of English doesn't pronounce it that way keep it in mind for the sake of the rhyme. lol

The bridge is whispered.

Lyrics: 

Z's

Wound up in bed
Thoughts racing in my head
Nothing seems to slow me down
Drink a cup of chamomile
So hopefully I'll feel
Like snoozing , I gotta slowdown

I need more Z's
When I lie down
Z's so I'm fine
Z's For the next day
Z's to rise and shine
Z's for good health
Z's for my mood
Z's so I'm happy
Z's to feel renewed

Can't get to sleep
After counting some sheep
I don't know what I can do
Picture colors on a wheel?
Dream up something surreal?
I'm so beyond tired it's true

I need more Z's
When I lie down
Z's so I'm fine
Z's For the next day
Z's to rise and shine
Z's for good health
Z's for my mood
Z's so I'm happy
Z's to feel renewed

If I don't get my beauty sleep
I'll be a beast the next day
Mood swings and all
And nobody wants that

I need more Z's
When I lie down
Z's so I'm fine
Z's For the next day
Z's to rise and shine
Z's for good health
Z's for my mood
Z's so I'm happy
Z's to feel renewed

Love the "Z's" idea - great title and I also like how that is repeated. We sort of went the same insomnia direction, I like how you list various ways to maybe get to sleep. Excellent bridge that brings up the consequences of lack of sleep!

"If I don't get my beauty sleep/I'll be a beast the next day" - YEEEESSSS!!! This is so clever and I do love the "Z's" concept. Very spot on with the struggle to get proper rest. I felt the exasperation in that second verse.

Just watch the news, that'll put you to sleep Smile - count excuses and lies.

Z's are great. I hate it when I have sleepless nights.
