Go to sleep
At least lie here awhile
Best to look straight through your eyelids
Count or listen to the voices
But don't go out and down to the landing

Give it time enough
I'll check the clock
And you'll be still until I leave
The living room is on
And lights are blaring with the TV

And you say

"Clap once for me and I'll know
I'll be watching on my pillow
Clap twice, I'll see what you mean
It was one for the other team"

Go to sleep
Or at least keep the light off
I'll see it shining through the cracks
You may be missing some things
But if you leave it open, some of them might come back
