I Need Some Sleep Lyrics - Eels

Review The Song (40)

I need some sleep
It can't go on like this
I tried counting sheep
But there's one I always miss
Everyone says I'm getting down too low
Everyone says you just gotta let it go
You just gotta let it go
You just gotta let it go

I need some sleep
Time to put the old horse down
I'm in too deep
And the wheels keep spinning 'round
Everyone says I'm getting' down too low
Everyone says you just gotta let it go
You just gotta let it go
You just gotta let it go

You just gotta let it go

Boring people | Reviewer: Pierre | 10/28/11

Marty, your life must be so sad if you really need to write this on a website. People just express their feelings and how they are grateful, and you, you come to tell them to shut up and tell it to friends. What a sad world in which we would live if people stopped expressing their feelings !

I love this song, slow rythm, nice lyrics, perfect voice, not too instumental to keep it intimate, and an echo to a personal experience too, and I'm happy to share it and the feelings it conveys to me with everyone.

Thanks, Eels :)

Shhh | Reviewer: Marty | 3/11/11

I agree with Sarah to a certain extent as this is supposed to have reviews of the song, however it seems every other song is a martyr who has broken up with a partner. I do not really see the relevance to this for those reading the "reviews" and those submitting them for the following reasons:
a) Breaking up with a partner is an unfortunate occurence that the majority of the population have endured, however I do not see every person on the planet going onto a website and telling the world. Why don't you talk to friends, parents (I am presuming your all 16 for something like this to affect you in such a way)or school counsellors.
b) I am sorry to say this but I do not think anyone who has come here to read reviews cares to much. You have broken up eith your partner, which I am sure you have the emotional strength to conquer. If you were sex trafficked to South America, forced into prostitution and made to smuggle drugs up your anus then just maybe, people would be concerned.

In relation to the song, it is profoundly beautiful, which I am sure can resonate with many people for whatever reasons. My interpretation is that he may not be able to sleep because he keeps thinking about his parents deaths and sisters suicide. Now that is something that can keep you awake at night.

Not always obvious | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/7/11

Sometimes lyrics should be interpereted like poetry. Meaning it is not always the obvious. Need some sleep can refer to literal sleep. Or I interperet it as needing a break, needing my mind to shut down. To escape my thoughts.

just a review | Reviewer: noone | 2/20/11

This song is exactly what i needed to hear at almost two in the morning from waking up and realizing my life is more of a nightmare than my dreams.... my first love having made me cry three hours the pervious day. getting sick like migrane sick from being so troubled and i wake up and realized that i made a decision to break up with my current boyfriend for my ex that wants me back.... im afraid i made the wrong decision... this song has made it a bit eaiser to try to go back to sleep.

helped me | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/20/11

Made a decision to break up with my boyfriend for my ex which hurts me and makes me cry all of the time and waking up at two am realizing maybe im not always going to make the right decisions.... cant go back to sleep.... if you dont feel anything when you read these lyrics or hear this song... you are very lucky

My point of view | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/28/11

Music helps me by comforting me when I'm going through loss of people I love or just rough patches in life. I don't believe that a song only has one meaning, for me its about having trouble going to sleep because your having trouble letting go of a loss at the same time its about having trouble letting go of the thoughts that are in your head and keeping you from going to sleep, tossing and turning. Thats my point of view on this song, people all interpret songs differently because we are all different and have different experiences from life.

Just a Ghost | Reviewer: Jake Thompson | 9/11/10

This song makes me wanna cry, because me and my gf broke up and it was hard to let go, i didnt wanna sleep because i was scared that she would be in my dreams. But hearing this song helped me let go, idk how it did, but it did

To James | Reviewer: James | 4/5/10

James... i understand your situation completely. im going through the same thing, almost exactly as you described it too, even the name is the same. last winter my GF dumped me. and when we finally got close again... she changed her mind and went off with some other guy.... tore me apart...

Touching | Reviewer: James | 9/26/09

My girlfriend broke up with me last winter. I was going through a lot and that winter became hell. Over the summer we kind of got close again and i thought maybe there was a chance for us. She changed her mind last minute and dropped me back down completely. I need to let go so this song speaks to me.

If you felt nothing about this song, just meant you're lucky. | Reviewer: gogohell | 9/1/09

I had an affair.
We believe we've found our true love and we do love each other so much.
But I'm married.
Breaking the vow is the latest thing I should do.

We made the decision that we believe it's right last night.
However I just can't fall asleep.
