I'm Trying To Sleep


I hate the sound of an alarm clock in my ear

When I've been up all night downing a case of beer

I pray the Lord my soul for him to keep

Don't you know that my rest just don't come cheap

Fuck off I'm trying to sleep

I'm trying to sleep

Too much coffee I need a sleeping pill

I need a rest but ya know I never will

I've been awake so long feels like the four day creep

It won't be long before they bury me six feet deep

When I get tired and longing for my bed

I plug my ears, hide my achin' head

I shut the world out, my seclusion is deep

All I really want is to get some sleep

A woman's touch is keeping me awake

When it's morning I'm gonna need a break

My mind's in shambles, my body's in a heap

If I don't get some shut eye I'm gonna start to weep
