this one's a dud so I'll avoid recording a demo, maybe if I revisit it later and can't remember the melody I'll come up with something better
alone in the darkness, I'm counting sheep
so calm and so quiet, yet I can't breathe.
a mile a minute goes my heartbeat
can't help it, can't fake it. can't drift to sleep.
And every night's the same, exhausted and awake,
Surviving through the silence, hoping light is on the way.
"is life eternally a nightmare or a dream?"
alone, I hear those voices and their endless echoing.
Darkness fades and breaks to day;
Now I’ll fight to stay awake.
