I can't believe nobody has tabbed this yet, as it's not too hard to figure out. I love 
song; it's so powerful and emotional.

Lyrics:

My spirit is willing, but my flesh is weak.
My eyelids grow heavy, and I might just fall asleep,

Walking around in my sleep,
Running into walls I cannot see,
Falling and scraping up my face,
Ignoring the softest spoken grace.

How many times will I go and take the bait
Only for this hook to rip right through my face?

How can I love you back?
What can I do to show you, you?
His piercing eyes meet mine...
Please simply stay awake,
Talk to me and I'll hear you, you!
Don't fall asleep this time,
gotta stay awake, gotta stay awake.

Don't you see me reaching for you?
I swear I really do love you,
Love you.

How can I love you back?
What can I do to show you, you?
His piercing eyes meet mine...
His piercing eyes meet mine.
