Restless:

 

I'm up all night

while she's asleep.

Is she dreaming of me

as I watch bad TV

while I'm up all night?

 

I'm up all night

while everything is quiet

The only sound I hear

Is the noise that I make

while I'm up all night.

 

I'm up all night

while the city's asleep.

The streets are all empty,

the whole world is mine

while I'm up all night

 

I'm up all night

and my hands are on fire

I can't keep them still,

so I smoke and I write

while I'm up all night.

 

I'm up all night

with these thoughts of you.

I'm not sure what to do

at four in the morning

because I'm up all night.

 

I'm up all night.

A new day is dawning.

Tomorrow would be

a whole lot closer

if I wasn't up all night

 

I'm up all night

and afraid of my dreams.

You haunt me in them,

so I try to avoid them

by staying up all night.
