I couldn’t sleep through the night again
I just kept waking up so tangled and so mad
My eyes were burning and I swear I could see you walking in
I knew exactly what I had to say

But you’re too gutless to meet me today
I know what I’ve got to do and I don’t like to do things this way
Feels like giving up on a whole world
It’s so hard to be done, to let go of hope

I know how this should end
I wish I could tell you everything
I wish I could say goodbye
I don’t wanna sleep with my eyes open anymore
But you’re never there, somehow
It’s time to close the door now
Close the door now, for at least a little while

I wanna set the record straight
I guess I have too much faith that justice will prevail in the end
If I could just find you and the right argument
Rub my eyes and the morning light descends

I know how this should end
I wish I could tell you everything
I wish I could say goodbye
I don’t wanna sleep with my eyes open anymore
But you’re never there, somehow
It’s time to close the door now
Close the door now, for at least a little while

I have been ready for our confrontation
you escape me and I run it all in my head
I find you in my dreams
awake, awake, and asleep again

I know how this should end
I wish I could tell you everything
I wish I could say goodbye
I don’t wanna sleep with my eyes open anymore
But you’re never there, somehow
It’s time to close the door now
Close the door now, for at least a little while
