I wish you knew what it felt like,
to be stuck inside my mind
My mind like a ticking time bomb,
endlessly set on rewind
Thoughts come and go in an instant,
if I’m lucky they don’t reside
But my mind is a ticking time bomb,
endlessly stuck on rewind.
Sleep comes not to the wandering mind
so here I am, stuck on rewind
tired, so tired, unable to find
a reason to shut up the sounds in my sleep
a reason to silence the voice from the deep
a reason to quiet…
that’s all I want for me.
I just want to sleep.
