Staying Up Lyrics

by The Neighbourhood

No food to eat,
All the money's been wasted
From last week
I can't even leave
So I sit in the basement
Making up rap beats

Hot cup of tea
It's four o'clock
In the middle of the night
And I can't sleep
It's all on the peak
So bad I can taste it
While it eats me

How can I sleep
If I don't have dreams
I just have nightmares
How can it be
I still believe
Something is out there

Some part of me
Feels a little bit naked and empty
I'm stuck underneath
A few dirty old blankets
To comfort me

How can I sleep
If I don't have dreams
I just have nightmares
How can it be
I still believe
Something is out there

How can I sleep
If I don't have dreams
I just have nightmares
How can it be
I still believe
Something is out there

And there's a light
And I can see why I'm still alive
Mommy won't lie, cause if she did
I would have died
And all the time I sit and try
You think I'd be down
Every night, I'm sick and whine
Oh, I'm staying up this time

How can I sleep
If I don't have dreams
I just have nightmares
How can it be
I still believe
Something is out there

How can I sleep
If I don't have dreams
I just have nightmares
How can it be
I still believe
Something is out there
