I can't sleep
I lay here in the dark
In the distance I hear dogs bark
I can only think of you.

I can't sleep
No matter how I try
All I can do is cry
In the space you left behind

But love demands
both sides of the coin.
You lose what you join.
It's part of what makes it real

I can't hide
I must go into the light
To give the surgeon sight.
He will mend the broken light

I start anew
In a world without you
Even though in all I do
I still see you in the crowd

And love demands
both sides of the coin
We lose what we join
And we know that going in
That's the plan,
That's the plan.

I can't sleep.
