Scott wrote the words, mandolin part, and bass line. I added the harmonies and plenty of percussion.

lyrics

“Sleepless Nights”

I thought there could be something here
But she knew how to get the prize
I was the shy one with all those fears
She was the one girl with fearless eyes
Ooh girl, all these sleepless nights
All I ever find is
Tossing turning all night long with you on my mind

I took you to the symphony
I knew right then that this could last
Our love grew stronger ‘tween you and me
The time I’m with you goes by so fast
Ooh girl, all these sleepless nights
When you’re not by my side I’m
Tossing turning all night long with you on my mind

Seeing you like this it makes me sad
Whatever happened to the time we had
You push me from you, I want to help
Put down these stresses and run with me
Ooh girl, all these sleepless nights
When you’re not by my side I’m
Tossing turning all night long with you on my mind
