Sleepless night

Sleepless night here I come again
No, its not because of love
its not because of pain
there is a cute little reason that keeps me awaken
its my little daughter , she got my life shaken

At (3.00 am) I'm on a difficult task
my bed is on my right side
in its comfort i want to bask
on my left side is my baby girl
running around with a mask
now she wants me to sing a song , continuously she asks
I swear I don't know what I'm singing,
seriously! since when did I speak Basque?

finally its five and my angel is asleep
I'm cuddling her into her crib
then on my bed i would leap
soon before i start to count the sheep
i hear a little voice
mama are you asleep?
