Temperance – My Demons Can't Sleep

My Demons Can't Sleep

[Verse 1]
Why am I fighting another night
With something I can't believe is real?
I am restless and broken
Why?
I need you to tell me why
The skeletons in my closet
They're endlessly twisting my feelings
I'm hiding from the darkest side of me

[Chorus]
My demons can't sleep, they're wide awake
And this is not the perfect day
My demons can't sleep and I can feel
That there's no rest or peace for me
I want them to go but I know
That's impossible
I want them to sleep but they say
They won't fade away

[Tag]
My demons can't sleep
My demons can't sleep

[Verse 2]
How?
I'm asking myself how
How did I end up in here?
Which was my mistake
Time
I'm running out of time
I feel like I'm losing ground
I am faithless, they're ruthless, I'm over
Maybe sorry is the missing word

[Chorus]
My demons can't sleep, they're wide awake
And this is not the perfect day
My demons can't sleep and I can feel
That there's no rest or peace for me
I want them to go but I know
That's impossible
I want them to sleep but they say
They won't fade away

[Instrumental Break]

[Bridge]
Turning and turning the story won't change
Hiding my faults just drives me insane
Running and running away from myself
It isn't exactly the way out of hell
Maybe the demons won't look at my cries
Maybe they're trying to open my eyes
What if the one to be blamed it was me
What if I finally say that I'm wrong?
What if I finally say
Let it go!
Will they fade?
My demons can't sleep

[Chorus 2]
My demons can't sleep
They're wide awake
And this is not the prefect day
My demons can't sleep and I can feel
(My demons can't sleep, oh)
That there's no rest or peace for me
I want them to go and I know now
It's possible
I want them to sleep but they say
They won't fade away

[Outro]
My demons can't sleep
My demons can't sleep
My demons can't sleep
