"Can't Sleep" as written by and Jonathan David/siljamaki Grant....
4:30 am., I'm awake again 
Singing to the dark through open eyes 
While dreaming I see only you and me 
Stuck between desire and compromise 

If I said I want you back I'd be a liar 
There's nothing left of us to long for anymore 
But inside the ashes burns an endless fire 
And every night I can't help reaching out for more 

And I can't sleep
You're so far away from me 
And I can't sleep
And I can't sleep 
And I can't sleep
You're so far away from me 
And I can't sleep
And I can't sleep 

And I can't sleep
You're so far away from me 
And I can't sleep
And I can't sleep 

And I can't sleep
You're so far away from me 
And I can't sleep
And I can't sleep

    General CommentNo probs. I've always thought this song is most likely about a relationship, but I can't help thinking that the sleeplessness could be something to do with addiction. Like... you can't sleep because of cravings, or the insomnia after dropping an E etc.

    General Commentthis song hits so deep for me...it's about someone thinking of an ex-lover who is somewhere far away from them. They know in their mind that they don't want this person back, but their heart still misses this person, longs for them and it the memories and thoughts of this person causes them to be restless and sleepless. The lyrics are just haunting and amazing.

    General Commenti think it's about a relationship that's ended.
    like a struggle of doing whats best for you or following your heart.
