[verse]

I couldn't sleep last night
        G                        B7 B7/A   Em9
I laid awake and wished you were here
                         C                    G
I wished that I had more time to make more mistakes
              B7         B7/A
I'd make them louder and clearer

[chorus]

C          B7/D#      G
I couldn't sleep last night
C                B7/D#   G  A7/C#
It wasn't for my lack of trying
C               B7/D#      G  A7/C#  C  A7/C#
I just couldn't sleep last night___

      D         C
Not a light was on

    C                     B7/D# G
And what you do, what you do to me

[verse]
Emin9               C
I even followed the rules
            G             B7 B7/A   Emin9
I closed my eyes I didn't move
                      C
If I was only stronger I wish that I was stronger here
G
Referring to my heartsong dear
      B7                   B7/A
Cause this day will be the longest of the year

C               B7/D#      G  A7/C#  C  A7/C#
I just couldn't sleep last night___

By the light of day may my dreams be waiting

In time
   Bm7       Bm7 / A#m7 / Am7 (quick slide)
In due time

I will rest my thoughts of you

Emin9                                                           C
Could I be more lucky than I've grown to be just knowing that I know her
                G                B7              B7/A
Why shouldn't I show her all the wise of getting older
Emin9                                                     C
Could she be more perfect in perfection her reflection is casting
                G              B7   B7/A
Well that's the last thing I'm ever asking

C          B7/D#      G
I couldn't sleep last night
C               B7/D#  G  A7/C#
I just couldn't get it right

I just couldn't sleep last night___
