If I don't sleep tonight,



then maybe the leaves would fall a little more slowly.
Maybe you'll change a little more slowly.
Maybe I'll speak a little more slowly.

And then you won't be so different so quickly,
and the weather won't be so cold so quickly,
and I won't have to run so quickly
to halt the spinning world.
