"Can't Sleep" as written by and Hugo Peretti George Weiss....
When we sleep the air is made of silence
The light that cracks our windows
Is settling like dust
And while you dream I lie
My eyes are staring upwards
Beyond this ceiling's heaven
Is that where we're aspiring?
Or don't you know?

These are the days that bring me round again
Tried to stop the sun from falling out of the sky
With my bare hands out
Oh we ran and ran you ask too many questions
The birds that sing at night time
They restored my faith in town but for too long

And god knows
I want to write a love song
You asked so nicely for one
I promise I will do one
Before too long

And these are the days that bring me round again
Tried to stop the sun from falling out of the sky
With my bare hands out

Listen to me
Oh my, oh my darling
I will never believe you again
But please start trying
'cause I don't want to leave you

Oh, from this day on
I promise I won't wish on
Anything unreachable
Especially the stars
'cause they're too far away, yes
They're too far away
They're too far away
