Wide Awake

by Ms. Smooth

It's 2 in the morning and my eyelids 
can't seem to touch long enough to sleep
I feel so restless, I can't keep still
Damn, is it me or does it feel like hell?
What is the temperature on?
Whether it be 65 or 95, I still couldn't tell
Because you are in my mind, causing my inner
 voice to yell
So, I switch positions and find a comfortable spot 
and to no avail, I'm still running hot
I decide to turn on my side, 
but still I see visions of you and I
Maybe I'll try laying on my back, 
but then I begin to remember how we felt in the sack
Finally, I lay on my tummy, 
now I keep hearing you telling me that I'm so damn yummy
Okay, so maybe I need to walk around…
now, my feet are planted on the same ground where we got down
Now, I'm feeling tense, so I begin to exercise, 
but every time I exercise I think of the gym 
and come to think of it…you're the reason why I'm so slim
I need some fresh air, maybe I'll walk outside bare 
I step on to my porch and realize this is where you ignited my internal torch
Now, I really need a cold shower
As the water runs…this is where you met me after the midnight's hour
Shit, it's 3:30 and I'm feeling kind of hungry
As I walk into my kitchen to get something to eat, 
I get flashbacks of you, me, the countertop, and your favorite seat
Listen, all of this is because of you 
and at night you sleep next to someone new
If I could, I'd go somewhere far, but I won't dare get into my car
Every time I look at my backseat…
Still don't know how we acquired such a feat
Damn, it's after 4, dreaming of you walking through my bedroom door
Yeah, we've done it before, time and time again, hoping to do it once more
All I want is sedated slumber, 
but instead, I'm on my cell pressing send on your number
