Make it a sweet, sweet goodbye -
It could be for the last time and it's not right.
"Don't let yourself get in over your head," he said.
Alone and far from home I'll find you...

Dead - Like a candle you burned out;
Spill the wax over the spaces left in place of angry words.
Scream - To be heard, like you needed any more attention;
Throw the bottle, break the door, and disappear.

Sing me to sleep,
I'll see you in my dreams
Waiting to say, "I miss you. I'm so sorry."

Forever's never seemed so long;
As when you're not around it's like a piece of me is missing.
I could have learned so much from you,
But what's left now?
Don't you realize you showed this family a world of pain?
Can't you see there could have been a happy ending & we let go?

Sing me to sleep, I'll see you in my dreams, waiting to say, "I miss you. I'm so sorry."

(Sing me to sleep,
Sing me to sleep,
Sing me to sleep,
Sing me to sleep...)

Sing me to sleep,
I'll see you in my dreams
Waiting to say, "I miss you. I'm so sorry."

Sing me to sleep (You've taken so much with you...)
I'll see you in my dreams, (But left the worst with me...),
Waiting to say, "I miss you. I'm so sorry. I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry."

    My really close friend has attempted suicide and this song really gets to me because she is like a sibling to me and i can't imagine losing her, i played this song to her and we both burst into tears. I feel so sorry for Alex and his family.

    I love All Time Low!!
    But what happened was sad
    And so is this song
    Its about alex's brother who commited suicide,
    and alex thought it was his fault his brother died because
    they had a fight before he died

    and i never knew the meaning to this song, but when i actually sat down and listened to the lyrics, it came to me. and it explains so much how i feel. and i thank alex for that, and of course zack, jack, and rian for making it happen.

    it's amazing how strong alex is in singing about his brother. i too lost a very close friend i grew up with that was like a brother to suicide just a year ago, but he wasn't actually my brother. so i can't even begin to imagine how hard it was on him and his family, but i think this is his way of letting it out. and i appreciate that, i don't know many people who could do that.

    All Time Low is freaking ahhmazing.
    I can't believe how strong Alex is.
    He's lucky to have such great friends, too :)

    I hate how people are just like "I love Alex!"
    I mean, I love Alex too,
    but he's not the only person in the band.

    Alex probably wouldn't be as strong as he is if he didn't have friends like Jack, Zach and Rian :D
