Lyrics

I'm lying on the bed
With the paper in my hand
Turn on the radio
And listen to the band
And when I close my eyes
And I turn out the light
I find the same thing
Happens every night

It's called insomnia
It's called insomnia
That's what the doctor says
And he's so sure
It's called insomnia
It's called insomnia
I call it lack of sleep
And I need a cure

I've tried all kinds of pills
And also counted sheep
Read another magazine
Still I can not sleep
And when I close my eyes
And I turn out the light
I find the same thing
Happens every night

Repeat Chorus

And when I close my eyes
And I turn out the light
I find the same thing
Happens every night

It's called insomnia
It's called insomnia
It's what the doctor says
And he's so sure
It's called insomnia
It's called insomnia
I call it lack of sleep
And I need a cure
For insomnia
