It’s song lyrics…I’m not actually lonely, but it is 3am…
So why am I awake? Good question.
I’m sick. Yuck, cold/flu whatever, but there must be more to it than that…
Maybe I’m the reincarnation of some nocturnal animal tonight.
Maybe I am a spy, and all important sneaky stuff needs to be done while the boring non-spies sleep.
Maybe some mysterious event is about to happen and, due to my insomnia, I’m not going to miss it.
Maybe I really am an alien, like I tell my kids. (A little healthy fear is good for kids).
Maybe tomorrow decided to come early in its cloak of darkness.
Maybe I would have been having a nightmare and my mind decided to spare me the horror.
Maybe it’s Opposite Day and I really am asleep.
Maybe I need a drink. Or a smoke. Or a pill.
Maybe I supposed to be developing the characters for my fictional autobiography. (It’s going to be awesome).
Maybe I should just lay there.
Maybe I should get up.
How do you turn off your brain?
