Memphis May Fire — Sleepless Nights lyrics

[Verse 1]
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?

[Pre-Chorus]
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.

[Verse 2]
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!

[Verse 3]
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.

[Hook]
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!

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