City And Colour – The Death Of Me lyrics

Do I have nothing good left to say?
Do I need whiskey to start fueling my complaints?
People love to drink their troubles away.
Sometimes I feel that id be better off that way.

'Cause maybe then I could sleep at night.
I wouldn't lay awake until the morning light.
This is something that I'll never control.
My nerves will be the death of me, I know.
I know, I know.

So heres to living life miserable.
And heres to all the lonely stories that I've told.
Maybe drinking wine would validate my sorrow.
Every man needs a muse and mine could be the bottle.

Maybe then I could sleep at night.
I wouldn't lie awake until the morning light.
This is something that I'll never control.
My nerves will be the death of me, I know.

Finally, I could hope for a better day.
No longer holding onto all the things that cloud my mind.
Maybe then the weight of the world wouldn't seem so heavy.
But then again I'll probably always feel this way.

At least I know I'll never sleep at night. (Sleep at night)
I'll always lie awake until the morning light. (Til the morning light)
This is something that I'll never control.
My nerves will be the death of me.
My nerves will be the death of me.

My nerves will be the death of me, I know.

    I think he's a man at the end of his rope. He's tried to get by and cope with his issues and worries as best he can but it's still not working for him. Maybe he feels as if he's not being heard or maybe he just has the same re-occurring issues but no matter how many times they are voiced they never seem to dissipate. I think he's looking at alcohol as a fuel and a catalyst to get his life moving, going, his problems heard. But towards the end he sees it himself that alcohol or no alcohol he'll always feel that sense of overwhelming emotion and thought. I think it's a man grasping at straws at one of the lowest points of his life.

    That the story of a guy (him?) who ask himself if becoming alcoholic wouldn't be easier that struggle with his troubles: being insomniac and thinking and turning things over in his head way to much. But then he realize that at least even if he is not well he is fixed. He knows who he is and how he is as bad as it could be. The story of my life! (except I'm a girl).

    This guy obviously has insomnia due to some sort of issue in his life. There is something clouding his mind. Paralyzing him. He's feeling this great despair because he can't seem to get over whatever anxiety that his problems are causing him. He is slowly giving into the idea of drinking in order to make his pain go away. This song is a testament to the art of his misery.

    Really good song for anyone struggling with a tough decision, or just going through a hard stretch. Letting us know he feels the same way. I love the part near the end. "finally, i could hope for a better day. No longer holding on to all the things that cloud my mind. Maybe then the weight of the world wouldn't seem so heavy. But then again i'll probably always feel this way. "
