The clock is ticking and I cringe at every chime
I can't catch my sleep at this moment in time
I went to bed coz I was sleepy and really needed the rest
I'd been having a "one of those days" and didn't feel my best
My shoulder ached, my neck and lower back too
Going to bed early was the only thing to do

Its 3am in the morning, I'm starting counting sheep
Tossing and turning, restless but I still can't get no sleep!
The covers on the floor and I pick them up again
I can't close my weary eyes with this much pain
Should I get up and walk around, should I stay in bed
These thoughts are keeping me awake, going round in my head

It's 4am and I'm freezing, my feet like blocks of ice
The covers are off the bed again I've picked them up twice
I try thinking of something lovely but my back is giving me grief
So I turn my cheek to the pillow and start to clench my teeth
Every little sound, every little noise, the rain is pattering down
I give out a little scream and grab for my dressing gown
Now I want a wee wee and for the toilet I will make
Anything to get rid of this awful ###### ache

It's 4.30am in the morning and I'm pacing the floor
I went to bed at 10pm and I can't take it any more
Might as well get up and read or maybe watch TV
I'll keep the sound right down, I'll not wake the family
I yawn and stretch, my eyes are closing fast
I might be starting to fall asleep, Yippee! At last
My bed sure looks inviting as back into it I crawl
And snuggle in the linen, the pillow and all
I curl up in a little ball and it sure feels like heaven
And before I know where I am the clock is striking seven

Oh No! Time to rise, a new day has begun
And I feel like a zombie, sleep I've had none!
I can't think what I'm doing ,put coffee in a cup
Forgot to boil the kettle and filled it right up
I need to gather my senses and snap out of this daze
I'm wandering round the kitchen in a total haze
I have so much I need to do and how will I succeed
When I can't even concentrate on the things I need

I drive my hubby to his work his voice a distant mumble
And I just sit there quietly sedate and very humble
I'm really not that fit to drive, it's hard to keep my wit
I need to gather my senses and just come round a bit
What was that he said about the bills I'm sure he asked me to pay?
I can't remember anything not a single word today
All I want to do is to climb in my nice warm bed
I can't do any chores or do anything he said

I need a cure for insomnia, I need to get some sleep
How can I carry on, I collapse on a chair in a heap
I guess I need some tablets to cure my restlessness
I need to raise my pillows, they were flat I confess
And so I face another day, I'll get through today somehow
But I'll sit and have my coffee and just rest awhile now
I watch the clock ticking, each hour just passes by
I can't wait for this evening when I get down to lie
For now I need to do my chores to keep myself awake
And I think my pain has gone, that awful throbbing ache
I guess it's just my lack of sleep and it won't happen again
I'm going to bed early tonight even before ten.
