I can't sleep tonight, wide awake and so confused
Eveything is in line, but I am bruised
I need a voice to echo, I need a light to take me home
I kinda need a hero, is it you?
I never see the forrest for the trees, I could really use your melody
Baby I'm a little blind, I think it's time for you to find me

Can you be my Nightingale?
Sing to me, I know you're there
You could my sanity, bring me peace, sing me to sleep
Say you'll be my Nightingale

Somebody speak to me, cause I'm feeling like hell
Need you to answer, I'm overwhelmed
I need a voice to echo, I need a light to take me home
I need to star to follow, I don't know
I never see the forrest for the trees, I could really use your melody
Baby I'm a little blind, I think it's time for you to find me

Can you be my Nightingale?
Sing to me, I know you're there
You could my sanity, bring me peace, sing me to sleep
Say you'll be my Nightingale

I don't know what I'd do without you
Your words are like a whisper come through
As long as you're with me here tonight,
I'm good

Can you be my Nightingale?
Feel so close, I know you're there
Ohhhh Nightingale, sing to me, I know you're there
Cause baby you're my sanity, you bring me please, send me to sleep
Say you'll be my Nightingale

    It's about her friend that passed away when they were younger. She says she can feel his presence and believes he is her nightingale so kind of like a guardian angel. In the East Indian mythology, all species of bird represent a departed soul. Nightingales particularly suggest love and longing.
