Losing Sleep

She was always looking down the road
She was never quick at shuffling her bones
Got a busted headboard
On the bed way back at home
Beside me she dreams so vividly
She kick and curse and moan
As I lay there lifeless as the stone

I bought her
Everyone's got her
Confused with a girl who don't worry
She sometimes confused me
I can't figure out why she's losing sleep

Daylight brings a stillness to her eyes
I drop my suspicions of other guys
But when the weather lies, then the whole world's in disguise
I know what she means, but it still seems
That we can't keep acting surprised
Scared of simply making up our minds

Don't bother
Everyone's got her confused
With a girl that don't worry
Which sometimes includes me
I can't figure out why she'd keep losing sleep

If the weather lies again
And sunshine wakes you
Adjust your mask
Plug your ears with these my dear
When drunken upstairs neighbours
Make you feel like you're being harassed

Or consider moving down the block
Turning over the page
And having a look
I know you might believe
The idea puts me to sleep
But it's not that bad
I know we had this coming
And when the headboard creaks
It's the echoed sound of a kiss on the cheek
