"Sleep" as written by and Eric Whitacre....
This is it, all that I have
Old memories stored away like photographs
What was black and white is now shades of gray
I was so close, so far away

[chorus:]
And I try to close my eyes
And remember the time
When I could find the words
To describe it in rhyme
Only I can't sleep at night
Only I can't sleep at night

I used to be so self assured
I looked at life with all the answers
But I couldn't tell you what It was I knew then or what
I wouldn't give sometimes to know it again

And underneath the endless skies
It's strange how you feel larger than life
But smaller than real
And all the places you can go to be free
Just seem further than a highway to me

And I try to find a line
To describe it in rhyme
Only I can't sleep at night
Only I can't sleep at night

[Repeat chorus]
