LYRICS

 
SLEEPLESS NIGHTMARE
(Crickmore/Nelson/Wright)

 
7" VERSION

A shiver of cold air
Woke me all night long
Awoke from a bad dream
To find I was not wrong
Everything we've done
Becomes so burdensome
The night is so frozen
It haunts you all night long

So I'm through with sleeping
I take a walk downtown
The mass and the motion
They hardly make a sound
And music fills their ears
With tenderness and tears
A stuttered emotion
To cancel out your frown

But who is your God head?
Omnipotent and true
There's one in the paper
Who looks a lot like you
I used to have a love
She was my Lord above
Now I look to the cold side
To find a dream come true
12" EXTENDED VERSION

A shiver of cold air
Woke me all night long
Awoke from a bad dream
It haunts you all night long

So I'm through with sleeping
I take a walk downtown
The mass and the motion
... make a sound
And music fills their ears
With tenderness and tears
A stuttered emotion
To cancel out your frown

A shiver of cold air
Woke me all night long
Awoke from a bad dream
To find I was not wrong
Everything we've done
Becomes so burdensome
The night is so frozen
It haunts you all night long

But who is your God head?
Omnipotent and true
There's one in the paper
Who looks a lot like you
I used to have a love
She was my Lord above
Now I look to the cold side
To find a dream come true
Now I look to the cold side
To find a dream come true
