Why's it always gotta be this way
I'm seeing shadows on the things you say
But never make good once they will change same stories, acting differently

I give up and I won't lie
I sit there looking at the time
Didn't want you to leave, you had to go
Too bad the pain doesn't follow

I can't sleep at night
Knowing that you ain't right by
I can't, I can't sleep at night
Tonight I was right, just want you by my side

I can't sleep at night
Knowing that you ain't right by
Cause when it's all over
You're what my heart's beating for

Where's the fire if we never break through
What's trust if we never be true
Wonder if you're ever feeling that
Do you toss and turn?
You can love me too

Cause I give up and I won't lie
I sit there looking at the time
Didn't want you to leave, you had to go
Too bad the pain doesn't follow

I can't sleep at night
Knowing that you ain't right by
I can't, I can't sleep at night
Tonight I was right, just want you by my side

I can't sleep at night
Knowing that you ain't right by
Cause when it's all over
You're what my heart's beating for

I can't sleep at night
Knowing that you ain't right by
I can't, I can't sleep at night
Tonight I was right, just want you by my side

I can't sleep at night
Knowing that you ain't right by
Cause when it's all over
You're what my heart's beating for
