I enjoy your show and I've been trying
To get through for quite a while
Well, we're glad you kept trying
Umm, I have this problem, last July, I was assaulted sexually
And ever since then, I've been having trouble sleeping

How old are you?
I'm 22 going on 23
Medicine, counseling, anxiety, sleep programming
Medicine, sleep programming
Anxiety, counseling, medicine, sleep
Programming, depression, anxiety

Well, they told me, when I have these bad dreams
To try and put endings on the dreams like I come out a winner
But every time I try to do that, I just don't get anywhere
It seems, I keep having the same dream over and over every night
And that's why I'm up so late

And I watch one soap opera a day
And if he happens to walk in the house, I'm paranoid
I just jump up and turn off the TV
Except he says, "Is that all you're gonna do all day
Just sit around and watch TV?"

And I love to travel, so I've mentioned traveling to him
And finances are no problem
But he says that he did all the traveling that he wanted to do
While he was in the service
