Sing me to sleep and if I wake up I'll just
Sit and stare and wonder if I
Could maybe survive if you just sing me to sleep

I still cry and try to get some 
Sleep tonight and when everything fails
I'll be choking on air and on my broken mind

I see you by the window and I smile
I see you tend my wounds all through the night
Sing me to sleep and I know I'll be okay

Dreams drift by and everything else just
If I close my eyes the world hurts much less
And I feel so blessed by the sound of your voice tonight

The clock ticks on and my eyes they close
And then you're gone along with the joy I heard
In every note of your beautiful song


Nightmares die and teardrops fall
From my eyes the singing has stopped
And back comes the lost broken mind

Sing me to sleep
I feel empty
Dreams become nightmares and
I cannot sleep
Nightmares and bad dreams
Just sing me to sleep
All that I need
Please sing me to sleep
Before I die out on this knife
I just want you to sing

[Soft Outro]
Sing me to sleep
Nightmares and bad dreams
Sing me to sleep
Brightest star for me
Sing me to sleep
Now this is a song I like. It's probably the slowest thing I've ever written, like... a second per word in some areas. This is... roughly one of fifty songs I've written for a certain person and this one I actually like. So... 

This is meant to be almost exactly what it sounds like. Just... comfort, much like Sweet Dreams. It's always been a sort of... I dunno, fantasy, I guess? Something like that for someone to actually sing to me until I sleep. If you don't know, I listen to music as I go to sleep because... it eases me, even if just a little, against nightmares because I can hear the lyrics and it sort of helps.

Oo, I like it!
It reminds me of Asleep by The Smiths sorta because it is slower and I'm pretty sure starts closely the same way XD
Good job by the way :)

Never heard that song and I've never heard of the band. I'll look 'em up now.

Oaky :3 they are basically one of the only bands I listen to XD

Eh. Not my style (sorry). This is... actually slower than that lol. 

Also, you said "Oaky". 

No worries, eh?

Ohw I slipped.
There are some words I type differently because that is how I find myself pronouncing them in everyday conversation.
Oaky and ohw are my main ones I use.
'Tis all
