"Pervigilo" as written by Klara Maria S�derberg and Johanna Kajsa S�derberg....
Is it your fear of losing
That makes you go further
What makes me wonder friend
Is how you get away with your lies
'Cause maybe you have noticed
That I appreciate your company
And every time you have to go
I regret I didn't let you know
I could love you

And when you hung up the phone
I realized I was alone
And I can't help it
You're just so beautiful
I can't help it
You're so beautiful

You may have seen the world dear
But you don't know me
That's why all of this
Seems so absurd
I lie awake at night
Picturing me and you
I wish I could make it
All clear you see
I could love you

And soon the fall is here
Turning us cold
And I can't help it
You're so beautiful
I can't help it
You're so beautiful

Oh the morning light
But the demons they come at night
I want to be your appetite
I want to be your good dreams,
your bad dreams
I can't help it
You're so beautiful

    General CommentThis song is very beautiful, I do believe though that it would be about her wanting to be with someone, not necessarily already being with that person in a literal sense, and still wanting to be their appetite based off of an infatuation with this person who obviously doesn't love her back, or notices her in that sort of fashion.

    General CommentShe's fallen for someone who treats her badly. Someone who gets away with lies upon lies, someone who hangs up the phone, leaving her all alone. She'd like to tell this person about her loving feelings and she wants to mean something to this person. She wants to be this persons apetite, its good dreams, bad dreams and so on. But I guess in the long run she understands, that this person doesn't feel the same way about her. Although she lies awake and thinks about the two of them at night, trying to find a way to work it out. but the answer is far from clear. The title Pervigilo is latin and means: to lie awake. I personally think it's a very beautiful and suiting word for such a beautiful song.

    Song MeaningI found something off of this website and it's a definition of Pervigilo: remain awake all night; keep watch all night; keep a religious vigil.
    I suppose it's latin, here's the link: dictionary.babylon.com/pervigilo/

    I have my interpretation of this song but don't particularly feel like sharing, just making a contribution for the definition of the title.
