Memphis May Fire – Sleepless Nights lyrics

I stare deep down into the eyes of my nightmares,
As they come to life (As they come to life).
I feel my heart beat right out of my chest
And I think I might be losing the fight (I might be losing it).

I live inside my poisoned mind,
It leaves me paralyzed (It leaves me paralyzed).
My vision's blurred, my words are slurred,
I think I might, might die tonight!

This shadow follows me,
It always keeps me on the edge.
I know that I would never jump,
So why can't I step back from the ledge? Am I losing control?

You take me to the darkest places I have ever been,
I think I feel it coming back again!

[Chorus:]
Why am I terrified of everything I used to love? (Oh, won't you..)
Save me from myself, I don't want to hate who I've become.

Inhale, exhale, why is it so hard to breathe? (Breathe)
Inhale, exhale, why isn't this working?

If I live to see the other side of this,
I swear I'll never take for granted any happiness!
I never knew what I had until it was gone,
How long will this go on?

[Chorus:]
Why am I terrified of everything I used to love? (Oh, won't you..)
Save me from myself, I don't want to hate who I've become.
Tell me that tomorrow when I wake up I'll be fine (I want to be..)
I just want to be myself again, I want to know that I'm alive!

Tell me is there something that I'm learning from this?
I try my best to make the most of it!
Maybe I just need to see the bigger picture,
Show me how it ends!

If I have to feel this forever, I'd rather feel nothing at all.

Bring me back to life,
I just can't take another sleepless night.
Bring me back to life,
Give me the clarity to see the light!
I know that you can take this away (Away),
So I'm praying that today is the day.
Oh, I pray that today is the day,
Bring me back to life!

[Chorus:]
Why am I terrified of everything I used to love? (Oh, won't you..)
Save me from myself, I don't want to hate who I've become.
Tell me that tomorrow when I wake up I'll be fine (I want to be..)
I just want to be myself again, I want to know that I'm alive!

Please, give me peace, give me joy, give me sanity!
Give me hope, give me love, give me truth.
