I sometimes close my eyes for hours
But never fall asleep
I'm so jealous of your peaceful state
And of the dreams you keep
I stare at walls and out through windows
So deep into the night
As shadows shift and shapes emerge
Fall in and out of sight
My body's asleep but my mind's still working
All through the night I'm tossing and turning

I sometimes close my eyes for hours
But never fall asleep
I'm so jealous of your peaceful state
And of the dreams you keep
Oh, you don't know this silent torture
Frustration that I feel
A million sleepless nights I've prayed
This nightmare can't be real

My body's asleep but my mind's still working
All through the night I'm tossing and turning

My body's asleep but my mind's still working
All through the night I'm tossing and turning
