"Sleep Away Your Troubles" as written by and Sbragia Melberg....
If I beg you will you smother me
Just to put me out of my constant misery
This is too much for me to bear
You'd know this too if you ever had been there

I hope you have sweet dreams
And I hope You never leave me

I wander thorugh these empty halls
As the moon casts shadows of just me upon the walls
My time wasted in endless regret
While you sleep away your troubles and forget

I hope you have sweet dreams
And I hope you never leave me

    General Commenti think this song is about a girl who is with a guy who she is smitten for, but he doesn't really return the feeling - like he just doesn't love her the way she loves him. the point is that she knows it, and she regrets falling for him and is panged by the thought he doesn't feel the same way, as he 'sleeps away his troubles and forgets' about it. she looks past his mediocre feelings because she loves him unconditionally. through love unrequited, she still hopes he will never leave her.

    General CommentPersonally I've always thought this song was about a girl whose boyfriend leaves her after she has his child. She's breaking under the stress as he's completely uninvolved in either of their lives (you'd know this too if you ever had been there). Therefore, the boy is completely free of these responsibilities (while you sleep away your trouble and forget). The chorus, I believe, is a lullaby to the baby... she's basically telling the child never to abandon her like the boy did.

    Anyways, that's just my interpretation. It might be super off, but that's just how I've always felt about the song. :D
