"Asleep" as written by Johnny Marr and Steven Patrick Morrissey....
Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I'm tired and I
I want to go to bed

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
And then leave me alone
Don't try to wake me in the morning
'Cause I will be gone
Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I will feel so glad to go

Sing me to sleep
Sing me to sleep
I don't want to wake up
On my own anymore

Sing to me
Sing to me
I don't want to wake up
On my own anymore

Don't feel bad for me
I want you to know
Deep in the cell of my heart
I really want to go

There is another world
There is a better world
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well, there must be
Well

Bye bye
Bye bye
Bye

    This song is about an escape. Death is the easiest way. She would like to die because everything is too overwhelming and emotional at this point. She's "tired" and "wants to go to bed." In the bible death is always likend to a very deep sleep. "Don't feel bad" because it's what she wants and feels she will be at peace.





















    In the movie this cover of this song was used for she wants the lobotomy, It's the perfect escape other than suicide. The end result will take her away. All of her pain will be locked away in a cell inside of her heart. She no longer has to deal with the pain. "She'll be gone", still alive but gone to the world and everyone around her. She is even told to "come back" by Blue at one point. She also says that he will never have her. She knows she's about to leave. She's about to go to sleep.


    I LOVE this song, this is my favorite recently.
