I Want To Sleep

I want to sleep soundly
I don’t want a drink or pills
I just want peace of mind
Losing a minute of sleep
Compounds all my ills

So what about tomorrow?
Who can really say?
I just need to let it come
Losing a minute of sleep
Ruins the next day

I wonder about the past
And say what if and what for
I just need to forget all that
Losing a minute of sleep
Remembering what I should ignore

I want to sleep all night
And start the day anew
I just need to believe
Losing a minute of sleep
Makes me question what is true
