it's one two three four (oh what's wrong with me?) i'm just counting sheep (i'm trying to close my eyes) oh lord i wish i could sleep (but i just can't sleep) it's five six seven eight (it was friday baby) (and love was so sweet) and i'm just counting sheep (now it's tuesday night). oh lord i wish i could sleep (oh lord and i just can't sleep). oh lord i wanna sleep to escape from reality cause in my dreams i can make believe that you're still hear with me oh baby! the way it use to be!!!! aaaahhhhh!!! repeat chorus.

I wish I had known at 18 somebody like I am now at 53, an older person with hard-won wisdom to whom I would have gone for advice. As a teenager, I was written off as an oddball. Coming from the docks of Belfast and living in a back-to-back in Leeds I was thought of as Daft Harry because of my obsession about becoming a writer. I wish I had known that you are capable of anything at 18. I was a teenager in the days before teenagers were invented – when it was a handicap to be young. You were nowt but a lad, held back because you were only 18, 20 or whatever. I wish, for instance, I’d had the guts to try to become an actor. I was quite good, I used to act at the Civic Theatre in Leeds as an amateur and longed to try my luck with a seaside repertory company. But when I talked about it to friends – who were all office workers, shop workers – they’d say : Ooh no.

I pray the Lord my soul to keep. For if I die before I wake, that's one less test I have to take. The prayer is best known for being used in the bridge of Metallica's hit "Enter Sandman" from their 1991 eponymous album.
