lyrics

Sleep is my drug—it hugs like no other
And during the night I dream unsmothered
Of my life, before I ever met you

Sleep is my wing and hope is my second
When my heavy eyelids beckon
I dream of ways of how I’ll let you go

But when I wake up I can’t remember
How it was I tamed your temper
So I could close you off and go to sleep

Sleep is my drug, and sleep will recharge me
When your cruelty turns to bombard me
My return to consciousness is charged

Eyelids are shields and dreams ammunition
Sleep is my drug—it fuels my ambition
To release my mind from your abuse

I’ll take with me all that’s worth keeping
I’ll leave you one night while you’re sleeping
And I’ll wake up in peace

Sleep is my wing and hope is my second
When my heavy eyelids beckon
I dream of ways of how I'll let you go

I’ll take with me all that’s worth keeping
I’ll leave you one night while you’re sleeping
And I’ll wake up in peace
