Sondre Lerche – Sleep On Needles lyrics

Ask me anything you like
I'll reveal everything
I will treasure the truth
You could know anything
I am but a fool to play unaware of things
If I'd treasured the truth
I would tell it to you
I'm coming down to tell you what I know
To say what's real, to let you know
Where I have been and how I had to

Sleep on needles
You'll believe you are hard
Sleep on needles
And hear only the truth

Am I likely to succeed with the way things are?
Judging by your smile
You are holding something back
I'm sleepless around midnight
There's a change in the wind
The remembrance of things you used to hold back
I come around each time your notes are high
To tear you down and drag you up
To let you know what's going on while I

Sleep on needles
You'll believe you are hard
Sleep on needles
And hear only the truth

    I am not sure what Sondre was trying to convey with this song. Its meaning to me was what I was going through in my former marriage. I came to distrust him and it was like sleeping on needles being around him. I let him know what that I knew what he was doing and that it was the truth. I could not sleep when he was around. Imagine sleeping on a bed of needles. You can not.
