I'm up, down spinning around
High and dry and kicked to the ground
I'm lost and I'll never be found

My lips where much too shy
The lines about you, they never rhymed
You said I never get things right
(I never said I was the best thing for you)

And baby where'd you go
I need you here tonight

Singing myself to sleep
You're still my favorite melody
It's been three weeks
How long can this go on
Singing myself to sleep
You're haunting every memory

Get out, goodbye, get out of my life
Goodnight

You're hot, cold
You're battering my bones
You wonder why I lose control
I miss you
Forever you'll stay gold
You know I'm not getting by
I've lost it, you're in my mind
Everydays the darkest of my life
(I never said I was the best thing for you)

Baby where'd you go
I need you here tonight

Singing myself to sleep
You're still my favorite melody
It's been three weeks
How long can this go on
Singing myself to sleep
You're haunting every memory

Get out, goodbye, get out of my life

'Cause I'm drowning when I close my eyes
And I'm fallin' I can't breathe tonight
And a story I fade to black inside (x2)

Singing myself to sleep
You're still my favorite melody
It's been three weeks
How long can this go on
Singing myself to sleep
You're haunting every memory
Get out, goodbye, get out of my life,

'Cause I'm drowning when I close my eyes,
And I'm fallin', can't breathe tonight
And a story, I fade to black inside

    To me it's a story about a break up. The guy recently broke up with the girl because he never managed to get things right or say the right things to her. So basically, this song is about how he feels after losing her.

    I was in a long distance relationship with a guy. He was the first person i talked to in the morning and the last person i talked to at night, he was always on my mind, in every dream. I want to be a singer and he used to tease me because i am constantly listening to music and singing along. Our entire relationship he was hot and cold, some days he'd be the most sweet man in the world, others he couldn't be bothered. A few times he went weeks at a time without talking to me for no apparent reason. A month ago we broke up, and although i miss him i know it's better this way, hr can find someone who will be everything i couldnt and i can find someone who treats me like the actually want me around. Having him tell me he loved me used to be my favorite lullaby, but now i'm singing myself to night.
