Sing Me To Sleep Lyrics

Wait a second, let me catch my breath. Remind me how it feels to hear your voice. Your lips are movin', I can't hear a thing. Livin' life as if we had a choice. Anywhere, anytime. I would do anything for you. Anything for you. Yesterday got away....

    I also think it’s about death.Possibly of a lover or parent or possibly even the person singing.I think it’s the person singing because of the lines “Your lips are moving but i can’t hear a thing”possibly they are a ghost?Also”Remember me now,time cannot erase”If they were still alive or not dying why would they have to be remembered?And finally,”I’ve become what you cannot embrace”You can’t embrace a dead person or a ghost.

    I personally think that the song Sing Me To Sleep my Alan Walker is about a girl whose boyfriend/girlfriend died and they think that her boyfriend is the only one who can comfort her. So she is asking the ghost of her boyfriend to sing her to sleep...

    I think it's about someone who wants to commit suicide so that they can see an old friend who died (i know, very sad, but...). The lyrics, "sing me to sleep," come across to me as the words that one would speak to death- "sleep" might refer to death and how the singer wants to go peacefully, without pain.

    i don't think the song is about death or a break up, rather it's elan walker letting us know that he is unsure about a new relationship with a old friend. the words anywhere, anytime,i would do anything for you indicates that after seeing her again he fill in love with her. the line sing me to sleep represents faith in love. when he sings about memories lets us know they were goof friends who went through hardships in there childhood.yesterday indicates he saw her again the day before a sang the song . it's all about alan wanting to be with his friend.

    When Angelina Jordan sang it in the Alan Walker concert – “heading home’ Youtube, I think she knew she was singing to the Great One in the ‘other dimension’. I found this website for I wondered what others thought the meaning of the words are. I taught English for 10 years!
    You were the shadow to my light OH, you were so close, you were like a shadow – we moved in unison. I felt us - Did you feel us ? Another start … I felt you! Am I getting it right? If I try – try too hard you fade away. Am I looking the wrong way? You brought me to Life. I want to get close - Wanna see us - for us to be together - us to be Alive.
    Where are you now Where are you now Where are you now
    Was it all in my fantasy Where are you now Were you only imaginary Where are you now
    Oh where have you gone? – Was it all in my fantasy … Were you only imaginary I know you were real – I felt and watched us move together as a shadow – but you’ve faded – oh – was that a dream?
    Atlantis Under the sea Under the sea That ancient city out of sight and sound – a mysterious place. It’s the ‘city’ in the heavens – but the song-writer kept it hidden! Where are you now Oh where are you now – have I left you? Was it another dream? I know it wasn’t – where do I go to find you? Another dream …. The monsters running wild inside of me The monsters of doubt. But I will dive deep
    These shallow waters, never met … What I needed … I'm letting go The shallow waters of this world – all delusion. A deeper dive Eternal silence of the sea I'm breathing Alive Oh I will dive deep into the silent world of yours – the hidden city ‘Atlantis’ – when I do, I’m home, I fully conscious of my breath deep and quiet – I know I am Alive … in our city.
    Under the bright But faded lights You set my heart on fire Bright lights but faded? The bright lights of the false city – our false dream world - and so dull compared to your fire. I know you are real – for my fire will never go out – for I will always be looking for you. The plea, Where are you now, is so sincere and desperate – that we will come together. WHAT LONGING.

    I think that the girl has died but has one to see an old friend who doesn't remember her until she sings the song.

    I think it's someone dealing with a breakup- not death. And the breakup might because they did something wrong, since "I've become something you cannot embrace". But they still miss their ex and is still willing to do anything for them.

    Just thought I'd interpret something not including death...

    I think this song is about a girl who is in her deathbed asking her lover to sing her a song for the last time and when she dies, she comes as a ghost to help her lover in anything he does. Remembering the good times they had together and not being able to forget him even after death.

    I believe it's about a girl who loves someone. That "someone" dies, and it makes the girl lonely, and now she wants to commit suicide to be with her lover.

    I think that is it about a child who is on their deathbed and is to young to realise that. The child asks their mom to sing them to sleep and dies while their mom is singing(Your lips are movin',I can't hear a thing).

    I think this song, it's about a person dying and asking that person beside him/her or his lover to sing him/her to sleep. The line "Wait a second, let me catch my breath Remind me how it feels to hear your voice Your lips are moving', I can't hear a thing
    Living' life as if we had a choice Anywhere, anytime I would do anything for you Anything for you Yesterday got away Melodies stuck inside your head A song in every breath Sing me to sleep now Sing me to sleep Won't you sing me to sleep now? Sing me to sleep."

    Sing me to sleep....say goodbye. It's not about the one singing, its about the one who needs to sing them asleep, walk away, sat goodbye as the other is as well accepting the same fate, a relationship that us no more, something that seemed to continue beyond what should have been and now to part ways even though there is love still there its over and time to part ways, loving, painful, still but done now, sing me to sleep, bye.

    I think that this song talks about a breakup. Sleeping would be like no longer being with that person. "our memories will be my lullaby" is like slowing backing up and getting over a relationship. Sing me to sleep would be feeding off memories until they are dull in emotions. In other words getting over the relationship.

    I think it is about a boy/girl who got their heart broken by his/her girl/boyfriend, and is now depressed, and pretends that the boy/girlfriend is still there, and they are asking the boy/girlfriend to “Sing Me To Sleep”.

    I think this song is about a breakup, or an end to any kind of relationship. Because it talks about how they'd do anything for the other person. Just because they talk about memories doesn't necessarily mean the person they're singing for is dead. It doesnt specify anything about death either. I believe they just miss this person and wish they were around to settle their mind.

    In the start of the song I heard "NO! please don't take my mother, I'm only four" I think this song is about somebody in a dangerous situation with gunning, causing the little girl to feel depressed.

    i think that it means that someone that a person loves is in the military and that they just want to hear their voice and they know that they can't hear their voice and it makes them upset.
