Couldn't breathe this morning, I had a dream.
We were in a room papered with memories.

And though our pictures were plastered on the wall,
You didn't recognize me at all.

Wish there was a way to never sleep again
Because I can't stop these dreams, they always let you in.

Chorus:
Maybe if I told you 'I need you', you'd still need me,
Maybe if I'd asked you to stay, you'd be here,
Maybe if I'd told you I'd loved you since we'd first met,
But you're a memory now,
And maybe I should just forget.

So you've ruined my morning, but that's all I'll allow,
I pull a smile on, and push you out for now,
Keeping busy, I keep you away,
But I lose the battle with the fading day.

Wish there was a way to never sleep again
Because I can't stop these dreams, they always let you in.

Chorus:
Maybe if I told you 'I need you', you'd still need me,
Maybe if I'd asked you to stay, you'd be here,
Maybe if I'd told you I'd loved you since we'd first met,
But you're a memory now,

Insomnia, you're my insomnia, you're my insomnia, let me sleep.
Insomnia, you're my insomnia, you're my insomnia, let me be.

But I can't forget the things I meant to say,
When dreams get in the way.
