"Sleep" as written by Andrew John Brown, Zach Filkins, Timothy John Myers, Jerrod Bettis and Ryan B Tedder....
Talk to myself again
All alone on my own
Walk by the sale again
Just to see what people see
Count your stars, grow cold
And I'm so from home

So turn the lights on
Turn the lights on
Turn the lights on for me
Keep the lights on
Keep the lights on
Keep the lights on for me, yeah
Don't go to sleep

Lost in your thoughts again
Consciously you think of me, yeah
Focus your perfect world
With a pen you write me in
I can't be reaching so far from here
I need you near

So turn the lights on
Turn the lights on
Turn the lights on for me
Keep the lights on
Keep the lights on
Keep the lights on for me, yeah
Don't go to sleep

I'll wait for you
I'll stay for you

So turn the lights on
Turn the lights on
Turn the lights on for me
Keep the lights on
Keep the lights on
Keep the lights on for me, yeah
Don't go to sleep

I'll wait for you
I'll stay for you

    General Commentwith the lyrics and the tune of the song it makes me thing he's walking down a lone, dark path..actually almost reminds me a little bit of radiohead in this song
    I totally relate to this song because this is how I feel about someone at home (I'm in the military) and I love just the smallest amount of recognition from home, "turn the lights on
    keep the lights on"
    it gets pretty hard sometimes being alone and it means a lot when you know there are people back home who think of you and you want them to know the same thing

    General CommentI think it's supposed to be "walk by the sailor again, just to see what people see". It reminds of that song "The sailor went to sea, sea, sea to see what he could see, see, see.
