did that get your attention? emoticon

for those who don't know, they were a band from Canada (split up in 2009).

I love these guys, and on my way-too-many sleepless nights one of their songs runs thru my head:

Now I lay me down not to sleep
I just get tangled in the sheets
I swim in sweat three inches deep
I just lay back and claim defeat

Chapter read and lesson learned
I turned the lights off while she burned
So while she's three hundred degrees
I throw the sheets off and I freeze

Lids down, I count sheep
I count heartbeats
The only thing that counts is
that I won't sleep
I countdown, I look around

Who needs sleep?
well you're never gonna get it
Who needs sleep?
tell me what's that for
Who needs sleep?
be happy with what you're getting
There's a guy who's been awake
since the Second World War

My hands are locked up tight in fists
My mind is racing, filled with lists
of things to do and things I've done
Another sleepless night's begun

hope the rest of the world gets a good night's rest emoticon

P.S. It's difficult to find the picture you actually want when Googling this band. The best way to start is BNL - I knew better than to spell out the band name in the Google search field!

    Great band. I like them too.

A bit of Canadian trivia. Did you know that Jane St. Clair, the girl in the song Jane, is actually an intersection in the city of Toronto? Jane street and St. Clair avenue.

    I hope whatever is bothering you gets settled soon so you can sleep peacefully. It is terrible to lie awake at night knowing you will be so tired the next day! emoticon
