My Tiger And Me

I'm getting up
as if I had something to do
but I haven't got a clue
so I sit down again
staring like a baffled hen

Can't make a sense of anything
and I'm wondering where he's been
I'm getting restless again
as he jumps in the ring

Maybe I'm just wide awake
now he's back again
my demanding midnight king
hello insomnia
likes to have a dance with me
the tiger inside
He's back again
woo… my tiger and me

all worked up
he is keeping me from sleep
because he's just a selfish creep
wants me to be with him
and join his odd nightswim

tiger feet dancing by gaslight
as we tango through the night
I'll shake a leg with him
getting mad about this thing

Maybe I'm just wide awake
now he's back again
my burdensome midnight king
hello insomnia
likes to have a dance with me
the tiger inside
He's back again
and he talks to me
he talks to me

Yes, I'm your tiger
your creature of the night
and sure I will put up a fight
don't wanna be on my own
I hate to be alone
And as soon as night time calls
I'll come crawling up your walls
calling you for a dance
get up and dance with me

tic-toc, the clock up on the wall
can't sleep, obey my tiger's call
gotta keep company
just for his majesty

But comes break of day
he has to beat it, runaway
but I know he will return
when the sky does burn
feeling deep inside

Maybe I'm just wide awake
now he's back again
A hard to please midnight king
hello insomnia
likes to have a dance with me
the tiger inside
He's back again
woo... my tiger and me

Maybe I'm just wide awake
now he's back again
A hard to please midnight king
hello insomnia
likes to have a dance with me

Maybe I'm just wide awake
now he's back again
and I'll have to dance
to dance with him
