Dilemma

How are you tired and wanting a shut-eye
But also craving a good time?
Making an effort is what you should try †
  
No need for a lullaby †
Nothing compares to nighttime †
Heavy eye-lids are to defy †
†  
Play a game of darts and hit bullís-eye †
But you know this is not your pastime †
Perhaps you could chat up whoever is nearby †
†  
Left to choose between dreaming a lie †
Or making-something-real-happen-time †
No more time to stand by †
†  
Live fast and as if you are going to die †
That was such a clever rhyme †
Words to live by †
†  
It is time to get high †
It is the perfect time †
High like the temperature of July †
High like you are going to touch the sky
