  • You done someone wrong
    Your karma has come
    To settle the score with you
    You're sneaking, you're crawling
    Into the ground
    Eyes open wide and blue

    Insomnia
    Closer, but no closer
    Insomnia
    Closer, but no closer

    The night you were laid
    You had it made
    When everyone fell into place
    Higher and higher
    Too fast to miss a beat
    Body and bones as well

    Insomnia
    Burning like a hell
    Insomnia

    Oh, burning, yes, burning like a hell
    Where does it come from
    Where does it go
    Throwing over your sleep?
    Walking and talking
    Dancing 'till dawn

    Insomnia
    Waiting to get you
    Insomnia
    Waiting to get you.

    Waiting to, waiting to get you, inso...
    Waiting to, waiting to get you, inso...
    Don't let it, don't let it, inso...
    Don't let it, don't let it
    Don't let it get you Writer/s: MATTHEW KELLY SHARP
