about

Pretty straight-forward, it's about not sleeping. Back a few years ago, I pre-moved to another state a few months before my wife and two dogs joined me. During that time, I had really bad Insomnia and it was a very stressful time being in a new state and starting a new business. Well this song and music helped me get through that time. Much of the recorded instrumentation and vocals are from the original Zoom multitrack recorder.

lyrics

At night, when the lights fade low
and the doors close, and there's no one home
When you're left within your mind, and all of your thoughts aren't kind
There's no place to go, to occupy some time
It's easier said then done
Give it a try sometimes
As one falls it continues down the line
Promise me you won't tell
and I'll never bring it up again
I can see it in your eyes
You'd rather hear me lie

Sleep, Fall asleep
Dream, a happy dream

20 years maybe more, I have been this way
I got to hold on, another 20 or more to go
It's not all that bad, if I don't cross that line
but if I do, I'd rather be you
Fight or flight, give me something I can get my hands on
As one slides, another one slides on top
Take a drink of cool water, whatever can break this spell
It won't allow me, to come back again

Sleep, Fall asleep
Dream, a happy dream
