Sleepless Night (words and music by Alan Gillis)

Another sleepless night
Waiting for the Sun to rise
I can't let go and I'm not trying
You're always on my mind

Another lonely night
You'll always have me under your spell
I close my eyes, I hear your words
I know them all so well

Lying awake these endless nights
Sleep won't come, I'm so in love with you
I tried so hard to make it right
Tried to beat the loaded dice
Why is fate so cruel?


Another sleepless night
Alone with all the plans we made
Thinking of the life we loved
The love we lived

Thinking of the life we loved
The love we lived

The love we lived

Story Behind the Song:
Despite my best intentions, I've deviated from my master plan and written another sad song.
The tune just happened as I was aimlessly tinkering on my guitar. It's recorded in its original key so there are a few falsetto notes camouflaged by harmonies and some strategic lead guitar.
