Insomniac is a song off of the album Drawing Lines by Eth Eonel. It was originally written in 1989 with the title Fighting Swi. The lyrics for the chorus and the new title came in 2003/2004 while Eth Eonel began planning the release of his first solo album (then with the title All Of This Is All That Is). The song was rearranged and demoed on March 20, 2010, and new lyrics for the verses was written on March 21. A few words from the original song was kept in the lyrics (... fighting and Me and Mona Lisa). The lyrics include some references to the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale.


Lyrics


That's what you get for fighting
That's how it goes when you go all the way
I've tried that before
But when awake I just can't make them stay

In dreams it seems so easy
Me and Mona Lisa
It doesn't need to happen
Just feel this real

I just wanna sleep
I just wanna sleep and dream
I just wanna sleep and dream of you

At times I wonder
If I will ever love someone - to the end of time
I am the sleeping beast
We all know that's not a crime

I will sleep a hundred years
Or even more
Until you whisper in my ears
Words unheard before

I just wanna sleep
I just wanna sleep and dream
I just wanna sleep and dream of you

I just wanna sleep
I just wanna sleep and dream
I just wanna sleep and dream of you

I just wanna sleep
I just wanna sleep and dream
I just wanna sleep and dream of you
