Robert Pattinson – Let Me Sign lyrics

She was standing there by the broken tree
Her hands were all twisted she was pointing at me
I was damned by the light coming out of her eyes
She spoke with a voice that disrupted the sky
She said walk on over into bitter shade,
I will wrap you in my arms and you'll know you've been saved'
Let me sign, let me sign, can't fight the devil so just let me sign.

I was out for a drink in a soho bar
The air was smoked out liked a cheap cigar
She rose out of her seat like a painted ghost
She was the woman that I wanted the most
As she reached for my arm I gave her my hand
I said 'Lay me down easy let me understand'
Let me sign, let sign, can't fight the devil so just let me sign.

As I walked through the door she was still in my head
As I entered the room she was laid there in bed
She reached out for me all twisted in black
I was on my way down, never coming back
Let me sign, let me sign, can't fight the devil so just let me sign.
Let me sign, let me sign, can't fight the devil so just let me sign.

    Giving in to this woman's love seems to mean to him that is damning himself (if that's even a word). Faust signed his soul to the devil, so perhaps 'let me sign, let me sign, can't fight the devil so just let me sign" means that he is willing to "sign" his soul over willingly for her. Like Edward with Bella, he is tired of staying away from this woman, so he is going to hell but enjoying it.

    Ok since the song was written before Twlight, this is my interpretation of what this song means. At first he's talking about how he was broken and in a bad place in he's life. Then met this woman, whose persona was a natural beauty (awe). She saved him and brought him life again but his fighting the feeling (hints: "let me sign, let me sign, can't fight the devil so let me sign" I thinks is more of a physical sign, rather then like signing a contract). Second part he's realized that he's fallen for her "lay me down easy let me understand" is he's way of inviting her in to he's world but he wants to know her intensions. The last part well I think is simple he's describing an intimate night they shared. All "twisted in black" is talking about her in bed covered in black sheets and "on the way down, never coming back" is talking about how he doesn't want to ever leave her or that moment. Well whatever your interpretation is the song is very deep.

    Actually Robert himself has said that the song is about a prostitute that he falls for and even though he knows it's wrong to love her he can't seem to part from her so when he mentions that he can't fight the devil and says to let me sign he is referring to signing his soul over to the devil to be with the prostitute because in his mind being with a prostitute is wrong but he doesn't care because she has stoned him to his soul and his love for her has damned him in a way. I listened in an interview Rob talk about the lyrics and their meaning so that's the meaning of the song that was written by his friends and the director Catherin found it appropriate for the first movie;)
    But even though that is the meaning behind the lyrics for the marcus and bobby, who wrote the song, I think you can still find your own personal meaning to it. That's how we connect with music anyhow.
    And I figured you all should know the truth behind the lyrics if you were curious:)

    I am a mother of an 18 year old girl. Of course I was skeptical when my daughter, a fan of the books, wanted me to watch the movie. But, as a cool mom, I sat down to watch. I was intrigued by the movie, the love, the connection. When Edward had to suck the blood to save Bella, I heard the this song. When I watched the movie again. I got chills by this voice. Must be some no name blues guy. So I looked it up. Robert Pattinson? What?
    This song to me is wanting to connect so much with another soul. He just gave in.

    There words look so little on the screen and yet they have so much meaning
    he is talking from the heart saying, all I want to do I love you, I don't want you to get hurt, he will be there to guide people through there paths, he wanted her the most, and yet she wanted him more, his love for her is so strong that not even the deathly winds could break the bonds, when he catches a glimpse of her his day is complete, and he feels like they are the only two people in the room together, they will always be in love, always.
