I can't sleep for thinkin'
My poor heart's been sinkin'
To the bottom of an ocean of blue
In some run down hotel room
The radio's playin' an old Hank tune
It's "Mansion on The Hill" and it's half past two
I can't sleep for thinkin' 'bout you

Somewhere in nowhere Texas
Road weary and restless
Been playin' these honky tonks, it's what I do
The guys in the band are wonderin' when
I'm gonna crack up for the shape I'm in
They say I been carryin' on like a lovesick fool
I can't sleep for thinkin' 'bout you

[Chorus]
I know that you said it's time
Time we moved on down the line
Time that we both found somebody new
But it don't have to be the end
Maybe we can just pretend
That it's just a phase we're goin' through
I can't sleep for thinkin' bout you

I know you think I'm wastin'
Precious time and hesitatin'
You want babies, a pink house and a picket fence too
I reckon we can't just ignore the fact
That I want this and you want that
But they say opposites attract, baby it's true
I can't sleep for thinkin' bout you

[Chorus]
I know that you said it's time
Time we moved on down the line
Time that we both found somebody new
But it don't have to be the end
Maybe we can just pretend
That it's just a phase we're goin' through
I can't sleep for thinkin' bout you

Night after night I just lie awake
I'm so damned tired I can't think straight
Can't get you off my mind, baby
Can't we give it one more try

[Chorus]
I know that you said it's time
Time we moved on down the line
Time that we both found somebody new
But it don't have to be the end
Maybe we can just pretend
That it's just a phase we're goin' through
I can't sleep for thinkin' bout you
I can't sleep for thinkin' bout you
I can't sleep for thinkin' bout you
