I should have known there was someone else
Down below I always kept it to myself
Now I believe in nothing
Not today as I move myself out of your sight
I'll be sleeping by myself tonight

I could never go to no one else
The hurt don't show but who knows, time will tell
I believe in nothing
But the pain that I can't see this turning out right
Oh I'll be sleeping by myself tonight

Forever be sad and lonley
Forever never be the same
Well I close my eyes and wait for a sign
Am I just waiting in vain?

Wooah I believe in love and disaster
Sometime the two are just the same
I'm beginning to see what's left of me
Is gonna have to be free to survive

And I'll be sleeping by myself
I'll be sleeping by myself
I'll be sleeping by myself tonight.

    It's about meeting someone you thought was truly special, but the love was unrequited. Now you must learn to live with the heart ache and move on with live but at least is coming to terms with the realization that things might not end to the way you want sometimes. Eddies at least acknowledging that he's gonna be sleeping alone tonight so in my opinion it's about getting over that someone it didn't work out with.

    When you experience this in time you become a shadow of who you once were. "whats left of me is gona have to be free to survive" this song gave me a nudge in the right direction once upon a time :)

    We've all been there at least once... And sometimes love and disaster really are the same! Love this song! Thx eddie vedder!
