I can’t sleep

by Stefanie Schultze

Genre: Folk/Acoustic

Lyrics

What kind of fever could this be
burning in my legs and on my cheeks
challenging my steps
and drumming behind my forehead?
I can’t see
I can’t sleep
How can that heartbeat feel so weak
despite the extraordinary speed
of rushing blood until
it’s all impossible to keep still
to keep still?
If I asked you for help
I doubt that I’d get well
unless you squeezed my fear
inside your hands
If I asked you to stay
and stroke that pain away
and you refrained
I would burn again
I’d burn endlessly
How come that distance hurts so bad?
The doors are closed, the train’s on track
Did I catch your last glance?
Is this the way it feels to be friends
when dreams end?
If I asked you for help
I doubt that I’d get well
unless you eased that ache
inside my lips
If I asked you to stay
and take that twinge away
and you refrained
I would hurt again
I’d hurt eternally
What sort of anguish could that be
thoroughly impeding me to breathe?
Going far too deep
for me alone to find that release
and feel me
If I asked you for help
I doubt that I’d get well
unless you freed that space
of oddities
If I asked you to stay
and blow that balk away
and you consented
I’d be sound again
I’d be found
If I asked you to stay
and tear those bonds away
and you were there
I’d sleep again
we might heal again
