Oh what’s this malady
what’s this pain
when the day’s activity
starts to wane

My mind’s awake
with thoughts and worry
waiting for sleep but
there’s no hurry

An hour later
I’m restless now
just shut it down but
I don’t know how

Two hours gone by
oh tell me please
when sleep will come
my mind will ease

Fading a little with
restless dreams
nothing is ever
just what it seems

I glance at the clock
it’s 4 a.m.
oh, sleep’s embrace
I need it, damn

Too soon it’s morning
and the sun has rose
but not for Jeannie
NOW it’s time to doze
