Go to sleep
At least lie here awhile
Best to look straight through your eyelids
Count or listen to the voices
But don't go out and down to the landing

Give it time enough
I'll check the clock
And you'l be still until I leave
The living room is on
And lights are blaring
With the T.V.

And you say
"Clap once for me and I'll know
I'll be watching on my pillow
Clap twice I'll see what you mean
It was one for the other team"

Go to sleep or at least keep the light off
I'll see it shining through the cracks
You may be missing some things
But if you leave it open
Some of them might come back

    General CommentBest break-up song, ever.

    It's pretty obvious, of course, but it's about the phase of a relationship just before or just after a break-up, when you're about to part ways but haven't quite, where there's still some forlorn hope, when you're hoping that your soon-to-be-ex will join you and fearing that they never will again.

    General CommentI understand the above interpretation, but I personally like to not delve too deep into this one. I think it makes a beautiful lullaby to a child, containing all those gentle admonitions about going to sleep and not wandering the house at night. I especially love the last line; it makes me think of toys magically sneaking back into a child's room after they're fallen asleep.
