As I settled down to sleep last night, I found that sleep was coming fast, like I’d opened a door and invited the sandman in. That brought forth amusing memories of Mom talking to me about the sandman when I was a little boy. She also used to sing “Mr Sandman” to me. But after all that thinking and remembering, the Metallica song, “Enter Sandman” (1991) crashed in.
A much different and intense song, I always enjoy its beginning. Then there’s the lyrics:
Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight
Take my hand
We’re off to never never land
