night shift

Night shift

So here we are again, and again and again.

Dark turns to light, turns in turn again to dark.

Awake becomes sleep becomes awake once more.

Hard is the night that kisses me good morning.

The sun comes up in time for bed.

Too tired to eat and too hungry to sleep.

Drift into a sleepless dream.

Sleepless, endless night shift.

He's a lumberjack and he's ok,
he sleeps all night and he works all day,
he chops down trees and wears highheels,
suspenders and a bra.
He wants to be a girlie,
just like his dear mamarrrrr.

Love ya dad xxx
