When I'm all alone and I hear your voice
No other man can make me feel the way you do
I can't describe this feeling inside
I can't sleep at night ooh
Home is where you belong
That's what I tell myself when you're gone
Every night I say a prayer hopes you make it there
Anyone alone like me, I'm certain they'd agree
'Cause I can't sleep at night

Chorus:
Loneliness is my biggest fear
I wish the feeling would disappear
I can't sleep at night
Coldness is creepin' in
Need to feel your warmth again
I can't sleep at night no

Holding you so very close
That's what I need the most
And it's your job to go around and
Share your gifts from town to town
I hope I'm not misunderstood
The man that treats me so good
But I can't sleep at night
When I pick up this phone
And I hear your voice telling me
You cannot wait until you're home
I can't describe this feeling inside
I can't sleep at night 'cause

Chorus:
I need you to hold you in my arms
Honey how can I be strong
'Cause I can't sleep at night
I need a love I need your thrills
I'm sick and tired of taking pills
'Cause I can't sleep at night

Ooh holding you so very close
That's what I need the most
And I know it's your job to go around
Share your gifts from town to town
Anyone's who's alone like me
I'm sure they'd agree
'Cause I can't sleep at night
Sick of holding my pillow tight
(lots of ad libs)
