Lyrics

Demons will invade your mind
Now and then from time to time, hey won't they baby
Rush you like a pack of wolves
Touch you like you least expect it, won't they baby - yeah well

You've been here before, oh yes you've been here before
that's why you know there lying, you know there crying,
you know there dying, they say let me in
You know they want you, you know they taunt you
You know they haunt you every chance they get

they want to make you cold, they want to make you fold,
they want to take your Soul

they'll rob you of it night and day
And I can't sleep at night without you any more.
No baby, I can't sleep without you, oh no
I said, I can't sleep at night, without you
I can't, oh I can't sleep with out you, baby

Lightning lives within my blood
Frightning as it sounds my love don't be scared
Tonight I'm gonna let you in
Commit another mortal sin, but I don't care, no
Cause we've been here
Yes we've been here before

That's why I know your lying, I know your crying,
I know your dying, yeah to let me in
I know you want me, I know you taunt me
I know you haunt me every chance you get
We've got to live this dream
We've got to fill this need
I want you all over me

Rock me like I know you can

Cause I can't sleep at night without you any more.
No baby, I can't sleep without, without you, oh no
I say, I can't sleep at night,.... without you
I can't, I can't, no I can't sleep with out you, baby

And I know These days are long
(ooooooh, oooooooh, oooooooh)
And I know this wind is cold
(ooooooh, oooooooh, oooooooh)
But I need to hold you one more time before we both grow old
(ooooooh, oooooooh, oooooooh)
And for this I?ll be a sinner
(ooooooh, oooooooh, oooooooh)
For this I just don't care
(ooooooh, oooooooh, oooooooh)
Oh desire just to touch you
(ooooooh, oooooooh, oooooooh)
Run my fingers through you hair
(ooooooh, oooooooh, oooooooh)

Ah, but I can't sleep at night without you any more
No baby, I can't sleep at night without you, oh no
I say I can't sleep at night,
without you, without you
I can't, I can't, no I can't sleep without you. baby
no I cant sleep without you.
