All Time Low – Lullabies lyrics

Make it a sweet, sweet goodbye -
It could be for the last time and it's not right.
"Don't let yourself get in over your head," he said.
Alone and far from home I'll find you...

Dead - Like a candle you burned out;
Spill the wax over the spaces left in place of angry words.
Scream - To be heard, like you needed any more attention;
Throw the bottle, break the door, and disappear.

Sing me to sleep,
I'll see you in my dreams
Waiting to say, "I miss you. I'm so sorry."

Forever's never seemed so long;
As when you're not around it's like a piece of me is missing.
I could have learned so much from you,
But what's left now?
Don't you realize you showed this family a world of pain?
Can't you see there could have been a happy ending & we let go?

Sing me to sleep, I'll see you in my dreams, waiting to say, "I miss you. I'm so sorry."

(Sing me to sleep,
Sing me to sleep,
Sing me to sleep,
Sing me to sleep...)

Sing me to sleep,
I'll see you in my dreams
Waiting to say, "I miss you. I'm so sorry."

Sing me to sleep (You've taken so much with you...)
I'll see you in my dreams, (But left the worst with me...),
Waiting to say, "I miss you. I'm so sorry. I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry."

    It's amazing how strong alex is in singing about his brother. I too lost a very close friend I grew up with that was like a brother to suicide just a year ago, but he wasn't actually my brother. So I can't even begin to imagine how hard it was on him and his family, but I think this is his way of letting it out. And I appreciate that, I don't know many people who could do that.

    This song makes me feel so depressed to listen to and I even start to cry. The song was about alex's brother's life being stolen from him in his sleep, and I feel the same about my cousin. He's been in the hospital for weeks now, fighting for his life, and he's losing it in a matter of days. He's the only one that's ever really there for me, and I'm not ready to let him go.

    I met a boy at camp. It was a real fairy tale thing. One thing that we share is that we love music and love to sing. I used to sing him to sleep over the phone a long time ago. Though, we live several hours away, we managed to keep in touch for 5 years. I still love him. I have never felt this way about anyone else. And I don't think it will every go away. I hope it doesn't.

    Alex is one of the most amazing people I know. He's been through sooo much s*t yet he still continuously lives his life as if none of it happened. If I didn't know him, I never ever would have thought he'd been through even half the crap he's dealt with. I know the real alex. It still bothers him, but he's learned that its not his fault and there wasnt anything he could do. He's learning to be okay. He's re-learning how to be truely happy.

    I'm scared for my brothers life and this song just brings those fears to life. Everything Alex sings in this song shocks me because its everything I wish to say to my brother right now and I know that at any moment it could be too late. I'd say this song is an inspiration for those who still have the chance to make a change in their lives, to make that change, and to keep their loved one.
    I'm a guy and this song made me teary eyed at the concert. Its so sad. I feel so sorry for Alex. Yet he's a role model for so many people, even with that burden he carries. By far my greatest hero. Next time I seehim ill remember to thank him.
