C                                         C7
Light outside my window, why do you keep me up?
              F          Fm                  C
I don't think I can take another sleepless night.
C                         C7                 F                 Fm
If I just had another 20 minutes of darkness I could finally rest my tired mind
          Dm               G          Dm         G             Cmaj7
instead of wondering what everybody thinks of me and everything I do.
      F               Fm             C
It'd really help me out if you were through.
C                                        C7
Cat outside my window why wont you settle down?
              F           Fm             C
I don't think I can take another brutal fight.
C                                            C7
There must be somewhere else you can make those awful sounds
      F                Fm                C
and why do you wait until I lay down every night?
    Dm              G             Dm                 G      Cmaj7
It's really less about the rest and more about me feeling in control.
       F                Fm                 c
Still, It'd really help me out if you could go.
   Dm                         C
Oh wouldn't you think that by now
   Dm                    G                  Cmaj7
someone my age should have these things figured out?
F                   G                C
But I still depend on a few hours a night 
F                   G               C          D7
to not over-think every dumb little thing in my life

C                                         C7
Light outside my window, why do you keep me up?
              F          Fm                  C
I don't think I can take another sleepless night.
