lyrics

I never hear you leave.
I didn't know your other had a name.
Your conscious is heavy with hours at loss,
And memory stretches thin across
The who you are and who you are to blame.

Insomniac by name
And yet I caught you sleeping.
A mile away from where you fell in still-less peace.
Just once, sleep until morning comes.

Mind doesn't matter here.
Your thoughts as lost as stones stuck in the sand.
As sure as a promise with fingers in lock
But for safe keeping two of them crossed
To break the promise made by other hand.

Insomniac by name
And yet I caught you sleeping.
A mile away from where you fell in still-less peace.
Just once, sleep until morning comes.

As though your safer in the in-between.
Without a fault to find you out.
A sharp divide, the left and right
Pulling you apart.
Maybe this once you're safer if not woken up.

Just once...sleep in.
Just once...stay sound.

Insomniac by name
And yet I caught you sleeping.
A mile away from where you fell in still-less pieces.
Insomniac by name and yet I caught you asleep.
Just once, sleep until morning comes.
