These sleepless nights won't mean a thing
come tomorrow i'll be dreamin the day away
inside my head again
the moonlight and the cool night air
reminding me of why i'm here
i lay awake in my old bed and stare

and i can't bring myself tonight
to shut my eyes, turn off the lights
i hope that some way if i stay up late
the stars will shine so bright

and oh, i try to fall asleep
i hear the floor boards creek beneath my bed
i pull the sheets over my head
and i, i can't be scared tonight
i need to close my eyes and just pretend
that all the monsters in my room are my dear friends

oh i'll never know why i'm still here
why i can't fall asleep to save my life
it's getting late but i'm not tired
i tried so hard to make my wish
at 11 past 11 and
i'll never tell the whole world what my biggest secret is

and i want to know what i'll be dreamin of when i get my eyes to close
and i want to know what i'll be dreamin of when i get my eyes to close
someday soon, my secret wish will come true

these sleepless nights won't mean a thing
come tomorrow we'll be singin
we need to close our eyes and make believe

and oh, i try to fall asleep
i hear the floor boards creek beneath my bed
i pull the sheets over my head
and i, i can't be scared tonight
i need to close my eyes and just pretend
ohh i need to just pretend

and i can't bring myself tonight
to shut my eyes, turn off the lights
i hope that some way if i stay up late
the stars will shine so bright
