ASLEEP

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I'm tired and I
I want to go to bed

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
And then leave me alone
Don't try to wake me in the morning
'Cause I will be gone
Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I will feel so glad to go

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I don't want to wake up
On my own anymore

Sing to me
Sing to me
I don't want to wake up
On my own anymore

Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I really want to go

There is another world
There is a better world
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well ...

Bye bye
Bye bye
Bye ...


Just a little bit bleak, perhaps. His portrayal of someone heading for the Big Sleep is backed by a melancholy piano part. The song fades out with an addendum of "Auld Lang Syne". Of course, this song sees in the new year as well as seeing the death of the old year, having a special meaning in the context of the song as the protagonist looks towards his new world.
