Sometimes I feel
Like I'll never fall asleep
I feel helpless
You can't help me
Fall asleep
I like to dream
But it scares me to think
That at some point
I'll forget when the dream began

I just got out of my bed
Covered in sweat
I was angry
'Cause you kept your hand on my chest
Don't touch me
I'm concentratin' on sleep
On what I'll dream
But I can't keep my eyelids shut

Look at me sleepin'
I'm really sleepin'
Look at me dreamin'
I'm so happy (x2)

    General Commenti think this song is like the Smiths Asleep. it's got the same morbid feel to it (forgetting the fact that wasisfacce hung himself to this song in the movie, but then again it has to have been chosen for the song for that part for a reason)

    it sounds like wanting to escape but being unable to. whatever the 'escape' takes form in is another matter

    General Commentthis song is about suicide.. its more obvious when you hear in the chumscrubber. "look at me sleeping/really sleeping/look at me dreaming/im so happy" troy is finally happy.. he must believe that when he dies he will sleep forever and he can finally rest. its perfect really.. if ever kill myself this would be the song i would play.

    General Commenti first heard this song when i went to see the movie "the chumscrubber" almost half a year ago. the movie was good, but this song honestly stood out to me more than the film did. of course it took me months to (a) figure out who the song was by and then (b) get ahold of it (for some ridiculous reason, it's not on the soundtrack). anyway, it's amazing; i haven't bothered to listen to any of rooney's other stuff (from what i've been told, i don't even think i'd like it). but this song is just amazing. the end.

    General CommentI love this song! With all my heart I swear. Unfortunetly it's not on the soundtrack because rooney never even released it. And ya know no one has the tabs! NO ONE. Oh well. It's a great song.

    General CommentThis is a very good song and I love the song's lyrics. I have no clue why Rooney did not released it but you can definitely get the song off of limewire. I also heard this song on the Chumscrubber. Jamie Bell I must say did a phenomenal performance in it. Im so glad I own it.

    General Commenti listened to rooney before the chumscrubber came out and i had no idea who it was singing that song on the movie. its crazy how rare that song is. anyway, YouCanForgetMe..that song is incredibly simple to play on guitar, no offense to you or rooney..one day you will learn to hate tabs. your own ears will be way more accurate than some idiots poorly made tabs
