I just joined UG not long ago. I'm an idiot newb. I guess I posted this in the wrong place the first time. I don't really know a lot about songwriting, but here's something I came up with - probably about a year ago. So tell me what you think. I can take it. I think. 'Can't Sleep'- partially sums up the last few years of my life, including ahora mismo, but it's mostly the name of this song that I wrote:


Why must you always
say nay?
Sometimes I get on my knees
I'm not one to pray
It doesn't matter what I say
I know that you won't stay

I'm up all night because I can't sleep
I spend half of the day in my dreams I creep
I'm up all night because I can't sleep
I spend half of the day in my dreams I creep

Before you turn away you look in my face
I know you think that I'm a disgrace
You always fill me with rage
But I won't give in to those wars you wage
I just wish that you could act your age
Keep waiting for you to turn a new page

I'm up all night because I can't sleep
I spend half of the day in my dreams I creep
I'm up all night because I can't sleep
I spend half of the day in my dreams I creep

Sometimes I feel like I'm stuck in a cage
Like I'm up on some stage
Like I'm up there on display
Just so people can walk by and stare
But there ain't nothin' here to see
It's just me, so leave me be

I'm up all night because I can't sleep
I spend half of the day in my dreams I creep
I'm up all night because I can't sleep
I spend half of the day in my dreams I creep

I don't care if you die
I don't care if you fry
I'm just so tired of all your lies
And the pain that you cause inside

I'm up all night because I can't sleep
I spend half of the day in my dreams I creep
I'm up all night because I can't sleep
I spend half of the day in my dreams I creep
I'm up all night because I can't sleep
I spend half of the day in my dreams I creep
