Sleep Lyrics - Dandy Warhols

Review The Song (17)

Well I could sleep forever
but it's of her I dream
if I could sleep forever
I could forget about everything
if I could sleep forever
if I could sleep forever
if I could sleep forever

wow | Reviewer: sara | 10/6/13

everytime I hear this song I understand it in a way that boy cannot make happy ending with girl there's too much against him and her and he loves her too much to accept she cannot meet him love him in this life so he wanna sleep ( not death ) and lucid dream of happy live ever after and forget sadness.. There's no hidden meaningS

What utter twaddle | Reviewer: Nick | 2/4/13

I love this song, I really do. However, I believe it is just something he dreamt up, I don't think there is any suicidal/lost love emotions running on here. It is just a nice song so let's leave it there. The rest of you sound like the world is against you!

Best song | Reviewer: John | 10/14/12

Hes saying he wishes he could sleep forever and just forget about her but her cant because she is in his dreams.
So it would do him no good in the first place.

So hes stuck....

thought | Reviewer: roxanne | 8/3/12

the song is about death and the power of love to save us from it. he could sleep for ever, that means that he would't care if would die, but her love keeps him alive, because he dreams at her, she is the hope that makes him to want to live:)...but that's just my opinion:D

A Meaning | Reviewer: Jeffrey | 1/3/12

It's pretty much a general song, straightforward. The writer knows wide-ranged metaphors that we can all relate to. Yet it might be some reference to a girl actually, considering it's quite deep and emotional for being such a short song.

Complexity | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/13/11

I don't think we're meant to understand this song. I think this song was made to make us think about our lives if we truly could sleep forever. I don't think Courtney Taylor (lead singer of the band) meant for us to understand this song. I can only imagine what was going through his mind when he wrote this song.

Haunting | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/23/09

This song seductively lures you in with it's haunting melody. I can't help but pause as a wash of emotions flow through me. Drugs, love, death, suicide, regret..., pick whichever demon applies to you and let this song soothe.

different.. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/28/08

i sort of think it's more simple of that
after leaving for college and my girl friend of a year i would have dreams with her in them nightly.. and they we're great, like my mind was filling in what we weren't experiencing because we were apart. the dreams are so happy. when i wake the realization that it was just a dream, and that i'm still in the same state is egregious and shocking.. enough so that i'm an insomniac now simply because i'm afraid of my good dreams and the constant shuffle from near euphoria and deep depression

the song fits me, maybe he had something similar that the song is about?

gloomy | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/27/08

i love this song...and i love how they put it in one of the trailers of the movie, The Virgin Suicides. I think it represents the movie very well. the song is about sleeping forever, dying, possibly suicide. Maybe the song is about a man in love with a girl who does not love him. That is why he wants to sleep forever, because his heart is shattered and the only way they can be together is in his dreams.

sleep | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/10/08

I heard its about heroin. I used to listen to it all the time before I went to rehab. I think when he's saying sleep he's talking about the numb state the drug puts you into. . . it helps you forget about everything, but all of the issues that were there are still there when you wake, so you just wish you could sleep forever and forget reality all together.

Beatifu simple song wraps up ambiguous ideas | Reviewer: JR | 4/18/08

So this is a lovely, simple repeated melody which calms and seduces me. I find myself floating, detached, dream-like. But the words - what is he saying ? Is this a good trip or a bad one ? Are we talking suicide here ? Drugs ? Just hiding away from the world ? But nothing is resolved; the singer fulfills his desire, the words are swept away by the endless melody and we drift into nothing.

sleep forever | Reviewer: carmen | 9/26/07

whoa. this song is just amazing.

i couldn't find a song more simple and yet so complex at the same time. its so relaxing and chill that one could float away from everything.

Great | Reviewer: DancingFairies | 3/27/07
