Meriwether – Putting To Sleep A Lion lyrics

If you could go away. If you could fall asleep without me. If you could dream of love, and not dream of me. Then I will try to explain myself to you. That I can't fall asleep or dream without you. So I will conversate with myself and you wont be around to see me leave.

If you could fly away. If you could spread your wings without me. If god has plans for you, then would I include?

We put to sleep this lion. You closed your eyes and died again.

Then I will try to explain myself to you. That I can't fall asleep or dream without you. So I will conversate with myself and you wont be around to see me leave.

We put to sleep this lion. You closed your eyes and died again. You've got this empty feeling, that rocks the neck to bone.We put to sleep this lion, without me. If you could dream of love, and not dream of me.

If you could go away. If you could fall asleep without me. If you could dream of love, and not dream of me

    He's so in love with her, and she can't return it. As much as it hurts him, he has to accept that he doesn't matter as much to her as she does to him. He has to let her go and it is killing him inside. He wonders how she can be without him when he can't be without her, and wondering if maybe they're meant to be later down the line.
