Smiths, The - Asleep Lyrics

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I'm tired and I
I want to go to bed

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
And then leave me alone
Don't try to wake me in the morning
'Cause I will be gone
Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I will feel so glad to go

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I don't want to wake up
On my own anymore

Sing to me
Sing to me
I don't want to wake up
On my own anymore

Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I really want to go

There is another world
There is a better world
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be

Bye bye
Bye bye

  2. ヘザー

    There is another world, there is a better world.

    There must be.

    Oh there must be.

  3. Sergio Galici

    This is some legit edgy action going on here (song's awesome btw)

  4. Peter McFarlane

    Teens & twenties of today got medals etc for coming last, got entitled resources from hard working parents, never got hard 80s discipline & therefore, never built an immunity/coping mechanisms nor strategies to challenges. Just like immunity to illness, having never been exposed to it, you cannot cope. Then there is Snowflake & snow snort who are offended by everything & coke up at the weekend to escape the normality of life. THESE ASSHOLES WOULD HAVE BEEN FOOD IN CAVEMAN TIMES.!!!!!!!!! Be proud of everything Disney owns and programmed you to be & never break out...cos its just too hard!!!!!!!!! FANNIES!!!!!!!!!

  5. Adriən Evangelista

    Lydia, wherever you are, I still *love* you and think I always will.
    8 years today...

  6. It is I

    Everyone here is either here because of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, or because they wanted/wanted to die, or both. And it’s a special kind of comraderie.

  7. Manuela Schult

    I hope there's a better world...somewhere...

  8. Rock pe pâine

  10. FubukiSeba

    I know you don't give a shit about me anymore, but I think about you every day and night. I miss you. I really do. After all this time you still mean the world to me. I wish I could just hear your voice one more time.

  11. Natalie Ant

    I hate this world, I wish I had a friend like Morrissey, they re all fuckers..

  18. Ankita Nair

    Idky but today I felt really sad again...I feel utterly lonely and sad and I want it to stop...I want to genuinely feel happy and carefree but idk how to...on some days I feel that I am overthinking things to a point where it becomes so unbearable that I feel like crying and screaming but I don't and I end up feeling so overwhelmed and it hurts ...sometimes I think that I am making myself sad and I hate myself for there something wrong with me...

  19. Jamie Hepburn

    Always gets me.
    Look after yourselves ❤️

  20. sing me to sleep i dont want to wake up anymore

    Living is such such a fucking pain I just want morrissey to sing me to sleep... and never wake up.
    Morrisseys voice is the only antidepressant I need
    The only thing keeping me alive is the thought that one dayI might get to meet johnny or morrissey. Oh what a terrible price to pay for loving someone.
    I hope there is a better world

  21. Mar Ta

    I love all of you, please don’t be sad

  25. deadbeatgirl

    On September 1, 2018, I lost a friend to suicide. His death made a hole in my heart and soul. He had a sadness with him since he was born, he carried a burden that only he knows the weight...
    He loved this song and always asked me to listen to it, now I can't stop listening it crying thinking about him.
    Maycon Douglas, I want you to know that yes, you were enough, this cruel world that was not enough for you, I'm so sorry this world can not bring you the happiness you deserved. You were and are the purest human being I have ever known in my entire life. You deserved so much more than what this life could offer you.
    I will love you forever with all my possible strength.♡


    deadbeatgirl God bless you❤️

  43. 1800-666-666

    _always thinking of her, and now shes gone after seven years........._


    are you okay? is this a reference i don't get?

  44. SirLoineStake Games

    This song holds such pain for me. It was the last song posted on Facebook my my former flatmate and good friend. That evening, he took his own life. The shock of that, getting that phonecall, it still hurts me more than I ever truly realise. I cannot ever disassociate this song from him and that moment.
    Earlier this year, the Netflix show Sex Education featured the song and as soon as I heard it I felt such deep emotions and I couldn't hold it back. I literally cannot listen to it anymore. I came here hoping to try and make it better but I had to pause it straight away, and I felt I had to type this to almost get a sense of closure. I never got over it.

    It was 8 years ago yesterday. I miss you, and I am sorry I could not do more for you.

  45. Joseph Stalin

    Dear ,Jackson

    I hope this song brought you a tiny bit of happiness in your final minutes. On that day I cried and I cried but I couldn’t bring you back and I knew that. I wish I could have done more but I couldn’t, it happens but we need to move on, but I still miss you. During these times as it takes a while to get over you I will not cry of sorrow I will cry because you where so great as a friend, you are off to another land and I will meet you again one day. You where my best friend and my favorite dog.

    Rest In Peace sweet doggo

  46. TheSecretPcode

    When you think the sweet release of death is the only way out, just force yourself out of your bed, go to your local park and eat an ice-cream, hear the birds chirping and the wind passing through the leaves in the trees, and let yourself be absorbed by that moment, and, just like that, even its for just one second you will have a relief on that numbing but yet saddening feeling you carry with you at all times.
    Although I'm still a teen like many of you, I can give you one advice, inercia for people who have depressive tendencies, is a sure fire away to get into a depression real quick, so if you're in a good spot right now in your mental health, don't let yourself be consumed by this ghost that hovers over so many of us.
    Also, Love your neighbor and allow yourself to feel like your deserving of the love of others, because you are!

  47. Aye Eight

    a year later, all I think about listening to this, is you Atheer

  48. Tatenda Kutadza

    I know this is probably getting old and annoying, but I'm still going to say it. Thanks for the recommendation Charlie

  49. TheBeatCollector

    I was there - stay off the drugs, you pay in the long run! Be kind to yourself - a 48 yr old man that got passed it!

  50. Vicky Ramírez

    Dear Charlie & The Smiths,

    All I want to say, is that I love this song since I started reading The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I was a 17 year-old with lots of insecurities and doubts, and this song is what kept me feeling like if someone understood what I was going through because I felt I couldn't tell anyone about my feelings. I isolated myself in school and ended up alone like the person who caused that in me wanted me to be, and this song was what made me fall asleep, waiting for another terrible day to begin...

    I am 21 now, and I can say things get so much better when you learn from your mistakes, you got to fall in order to grow wiser and stronger, now I know what kind of people I can keep in my life and what kind of people I should stay away from, it was hard for my 17 year-oldself to understand that, and she felt everything was crumbbling around her, but things get better... And I can say I am very proud of the person I am now and the way I changed. I regard this song with so much happiness because it reminds me of how much I've grown in these 5 years :3

    Thank your The Smiths and thank you Charlie, for being there for me when I didn't let anyone else to be by my side, love you always,

    A friend :)

    New Babies

    Thanks for your story

    And it ends with Auld Lang Syne, which in Chinese society is considered a song of death and funerals.

  59. OhMotiion 456

    I’ve heard this song before and I can’t remember where from. Specifically the piano part and it’s not from perks of being a wallflower

  60. exovipL

    Im listening to this again. Maybe to find comfort? That dying is so much better? I hope it gets better, but idk i hope they play this at my funeral

  61. Aline Navegantes

    I recently lost the most important person in my life, my grandma was my everything. During my last days at the hospital, she started to ask me to sing to her... She never really liked to listen to music, so I wasn't expecting to hear that from her. I had to leave her in her last days because I lived in another state, and had to finish my MA. She kept calling my name after I left, for days... Until she stopped eating and her heart slowly stopped beating. Now after all the suffering, she is finally asleep. And I listen to this song and it feels like she is singing it to me. I feel like I am now completely alone in our fucked up world. I really hope there is another world, a better world...

    Dead Bruh

    Goddamn this was agonizing to read, I'm so sorry u had to go through that. RIP ur grandma. I hope u feel better now tho :)) I lost my grandmother too and it was awful so I understand

    Aline Navegantes

    @Dead Bruh thanks for your comment. It still hurts a lot. But now I'm about to start a work where I can impact people and make their lives better. I think my grandma would be so proud of me, that's what keeps me going.
