Oh, how I wish I could tell you how tired I am
But you might feel the same way too
Then there would be no need to explain it to you
This aching in my bones says I have to slow down
I can’t keep up this pace
Can’t keep living the so-called rat race
There is a weariness in my soul
From going and doing every minute of the day
But can life be lived a different way?
So push on past the yawning and the droopy eyes
And send me off to dreamland
For the sleep my body requires
Bring on the shut eye!
Bring on the naps!
Bring on the 8 hours or 10, perhaps.
Just let me drift away
To find the rest I’m longing for
Sleep, sweet sleep
I want more, more, more.
