Sleepless World

Wake me up
Don’t let me fall asleep tonight
I don’t want the monsters in the closet to get me
I don’t want to be transported back to that time
A world without you in it
A time when you and I were leading 2 different lives

Not knowing what you had
Not understanding how great life could be
Makes the past dim and sad like a moonless night

Trying to function without you in it
Makes this a sad story
Going through the motions but always feeling like something was missing

While I was running away from the world
Driving 80 mph down the road
You were fighting for your survival
Sometimes you’d go without food
Other times you’d find yourself begging for a chance

Always lost, always sad
Your skin marks the time for you
Never forgetting what you went through
You didn’t love yourself
You felt the world on your shoulders
Thinking no one wanted you

But I did
When I found you I saw the broken boy in the man
I wanted you to find yourself
I wanted you to know what happiness was

I would have put your happiness before mine

Because that’s how love goes
