Songs About Sleep or Insomnia

Recommended Posts

I thought this might be a good category, or maybe two categories. Questions:

1) What are some songs about sleep?

2) What are some songs about insomnia?

3) Should this be one category or two?

Looks like there's definitely a distinction between insomnia/nightmare songs and sleep songs, so I think we have 2 categories here.

Dream-related songs I think can fit into the sleep category.

Keep 'em coming. :)

Insomnia - Megadeth

The lyrics are purely based on this

I'm running in quicksand

something's haunting me

the guilty past I've buried

my mind won't let me sleep

I'll do anything for peace - I keep waking up

a solemn oath I make

cross my heart please let me sleep - I keep waking up

how much more do I take

My head is talking to me

I don't know what it needs

but the loudest voice

is the one I heed

Insomnia, my swollen bloodshot eyes

Insomnia, awake till morning light

Insomnia, stirring deep inside

Insomnia, somebody turn out the lights

I can't sleep - insomnia

I'm twisting and turning - I keep waking up

the madness I must tame

my candle is burning - I keep waking up

both ends again today

The whole house is creaking

I know they're out there

the things kept from sight

I beg to the shadows

I can't sleep

Insomnia, footsteps on the walk

Insomnia, I hear someone knock

Insomnia, I wish it was a dream

Insomnia, can you hear me scream
