Can't Sleep - Above & Beyond

4:30 am I'm awake again,
singing to the dark through open eyes.
While dreaming I see only you and me
stuck between desire and compromise.

If I said i want you back I'd be a liar
there's nothing left of us to long for any more
But inside the ashes burns an endless fire
And every night I can't help reaching out for more

And I can't sleep, you're so far away from me,
and I can't sleep, and I can't sleep (x2)

You're leaving these scars scattered round my hearth
a road map of the places you have been.
But i can't escape, can't wash this away
when love has burned your mark so deep within

If I said I want you back I'd be a liar
there's nothing left of us to long for any more
But inside the ashes burns an endless fire
and every night I can't help reaching out for more

And I can't sleep, you're so far away from me
And I can't sleep, and I can't sleep. (x6)
