Written by: Mo’ez Mas’oud(*):
There are nights when I can’t sleep… I’m never sure why..
And the doctors they keep telling me… you should lead a healthy life..
But a voice keeps telling me that I’m supposed to cry, and i’m still trying to figure out why I like living lies..
You know I could never really count… all the things you’ve given me, and when you take you’re really giving.. but that’s not what I always see..
And I carry on takin’ and livin’ my life and I send you all my bills.. And you know that it feels good in the morning yet at nighttime it kills..
And I still can’t seem to close my eyes, and the doctors still keep telling me you should lead a healthy life…
And what really drives me crazy is how much you love to give,
you watch me take like crazy, I don’t thank but you still give…
And I carry on taking’ and livin’ my life and I send you all my bills and you know it feels good in the morning yet at nighttime it kills..
And even now as you inspire me, my heart’s gone out again..
It amazes me how fast it can fall asleep and wake again
If there was coffee for the hearts, baby hook me up… with a life supply..
I wanna make sure that my heart’s alive so I can close my eyes..
Cause there are some who wakes up every morning and their heart is still asleep..
And I can’t even close my eyes without this coffee of mine..
And I carry on takin’ and livin’ my life and I send you all my bills.. And it don’t even feel good in the morning and at nighttime it kills…
There are nights when I can’t sleep and I’m never sure why and the doctors they keep telling me… you should lead a healthy life!
