Sweating through the night, waiting for dawn
Grandpa pads circle the island
Stiff with pain, worrying about nothing
Will I ever be home again?
And that means everything

Fears mount, chest pain
Nights in the hospital again
Too much stress, nothing wrong
Prescription drugs, I do not call
A massage will relieve it all

Dry mouth, anxiety mounts
I count the nights
189 since I left
24 more til I close the door
On those night sweats
