Now I lay me down not to sleep
I swim in sweat three inches deep

I turned the lights off while she burned
I throw the sheets off and I freeze
Lids down, I count sheep
The only thing that counts is
I countdown, I look around
Who needs sleep?
Who needs sleep?
Who needs sleep?
There's a guy who's been awake

My mind is racing filled with lists
Another sleepless night's begun
Lids down, I count sheep
The only thing that counts is
I countdown, I look around
Who needs sleep?
Who needs sleep?
Who needs sleep?
There's a guy who's been awake

(well you're never gonna get it)
(tell me what's that for)
(be happy with what you're getting
Since the Second World War)
There's so much joy in life,
But the pleasure of insomnia
With all life has to offer,
But the pleasures of insomnia

I count heartbeats
That I won't sleep

Who needs sleep?
Who needs sleep?
Who needs sleep?
There's a guy who's been awake
