Hayden Forbes – Insomnia Lyrics

Insomnia Lyrics by

Insomnia” is the thirteenth track off of Hayden Forbes’ debut album A Musician’s Nature.

In this track, Hayden and Erin discuss the thoughts and fears that keep them up at night, causing them to lose sleep. The judgments from others, the judgment of yourself, etc.

Sydney Dobratz also lends a hand, providing backing vocals.

[Intro: Hayden Forbes & Erin Cald]
Ooo, ooo
Ooo, ooo
Ooo
Yeah
Ooo
I know we’re always talkin’ about “Chasing Dreams”
Ooo
But how can I chase dreams if I can’t even get any sleep?
Ooo
Let’s talk about it

[Verse 1: Hayden Forbes]
The lights are off but my eyes are wide open
Thoughts are flowin’ through my mind but I am hopin’
This insomniac poem, this no-sleep ballad
Will cure it once and for all, cause I’ve just about had it (Uh-huh)
It’s like
Words keep comin’, almost freestylin’ in a mic (Yeah)
But I’m all alone and it keeps pilin’ through the night (Ugh)
That’s why I take every emotion that I’ve ever had
Ball up into a pen and point it at whatever pad
These thoughts and flows are kinda crazy
Cause your opinions have made me sleep-deprived lately
I swear, I can’t take this any longer
With my emotions and time, I usually squander
I’ll get stronger, I’ll conquer, for now, my shots are pretty weak
This is an anti-nursery rhyme, forget Little Bo Peep
Instead, I lost my mind, my dreams I should at least try and keep
So Erin sing the hook while I try and get some much-needed sleep

[Chorus 1: Erin Cald & Syndey Dobratz]
Keep the lights on
For as long as possible
Scared of my mind
When I’m by myself
Runnin’ out of time
Runnin’ out my mind
Shadows on the walls
Insomnia keeps me up
Can’t escape at all

[Verse 2: Hayden Forbes]
Nope
I’m still up, this conscience nightmare is ironic
No sleep for 3 weeks, it’s shakin’ my world up, tectonic
But I’m not givin’ up, this’ll take as long as it needs to be
So I’m happily attackin’ dreams, but first I need to tackle sleep
I’ll be confrontin’ you when you say I’m worthless
You’ve got some nerves, but this life is making me nervous
I’m hurtin’, I’m burnin’, I know it isn’t workin’
When I’m up all through the night tryna discover my purpose (Huh?)
Never been the kid wearin’ varsity letters
I was alone, earbuds in, dressed in off-branded sweaters
But certain reactions kept running me this way
They were right, no one told me life was gonna be this way
When
(Yeah)
Everything I pushed out is now back in
Everything I pushed out is now attackin’
Everything I pushed out now has impact and
Everything I pushed out is now rappin’
So

[Chorus 2: Erin Cald & Syndey Dobratz]
Here comes sleep time
For as long as possible
Scared of my mind
When I’m by myself
Runnin’ out of time
Runnin’ out my mind
Shadows on the walls
Insomnia keeps me up
Can’t escape at all

[Chorus 1: Erin Cald & Syndey Dobratz]
Keep the lights on
For as long as possible
Scared of my mind
When I’m by myself
Runnin’ out of time
Runnin’ out my mind
Shadows on the walls
Insomnia keeps me up
Can’t escape at all
