I Can’t Sleep Tonight

All alone I see your picture
Before I turn out the lights
I didn’t know how much I’d miss you
Time has shown me that you’re right

Jumpin’ out, jumpin’ in
Of this bed once again
Your memory won’t let me sleep tonight

Now that you’re gone it’s like a nightmare
Without you layin’ by my side
Put a big white pillow over my head
But I still see you in my mind


Chorus 1
It’s one in the morning and I can’t fall asleep
The scent of your kiss, lingers on these sheets
Its two in the morning so I turn the TV on
Girl, if I’d loved you better, you wouldn’t have gone
I’m waitin’ for the morning light
‘ Cause I can’t sleep tonight

I stumble into the bathroom
See your toothbrush on the shelf
I never really thought that you’d walk out
No one to blame but myself


Chorus 2
Its three in the morning I just want to dream
But I still think of you, drivin’ down that street
It’s four in the morning so I start to pray
That you’ll be coming back, that it’s not too late
Waitin’ for the morning light
Cause I can’t sleep tonight
Ill wake up to the daylight
Tryin’ to pretend
That my heart wasn’t broken
Then the pain will start again

Chorus 3
Its five in the morning, nearin’ the dawn
But I still lie awake, tired and alone
It’s six in the morning I try and start my day
But all these sunny skies, still turn to gray
I’m waiting for the morning light (note variation)
Cause I can’t sleep tonight
