This is the fetus of a song, it needs revising and all. Please give me some constructive criticism and/or suggestions. These are the first lyrics I've ever written, I'm more of a composer. Still, this being my first song once that first line wnet down the rest just followed, so it's not thoroughly thought out or anything.


Late Night Ramblings

Long day behind and another up ahead
Anticipating a quiet night asleep in your bed
Take five minutes to reflect on the day
Ten minutes later thoughts gone astray

Willing yourself to sleep
You’d love to be in deep
Trying to gain control
As attractive thoughts pull
No more hope for rest
Your mind is on a quest

Late night ramblings
Thoughts running through your head
Lying awake in bed
Late night ramblings
Searching for the meaning
Searching through your being

You think about life and of death
Where are you going when will it end?
Regressing to childhood dreams of wealth
What is everything and how did it begin?
Professors or the holy
Which one’s got it right?
Will she ever know me?
You reflect upon your plight

Late night ramblings
Thoughts running through your head
Lying awake in bed
Late night ramblings
Searching for the meaning
Searching through your being

As the night darkens sleep begins to call
Thoughts slowing as you cycle through them all
Sleep beckons but you’re on the brink
So many things you begin to think
Slipping slowly…
Not even knowing…
You’ve gotten in deep…
Now you’re rising from your sleep…
