City and Colour - Sleeping Sickness

slsI'm submitting a song for SLS19 consideration. I'm submitting "Sleeping Sickness" by City and Colour with special guest Gord Downie.

I've written quite a bit about this song, but I've never officially submitted it for SLS consideration. Now, it's official. There's no official video yet, but you can hear this sweet song by clicking play below.

Lyrics:

I awoke
only to find to find my lungs empty
and through the night
so it seems I'm not breathing

and now my dreams
are nothing like they were meant to be
and I'm breaking down..
I think I'm breaking down...

And I'm afraid
to sleep because of what haunts me
Such as
Living with the uncertainty
That I'll never find the words to say
which would completely explain
just how I'm breaking down

Someone come and
Someone come and save my life
Maybe I'll sleep when I am dead
But now it's like the night
Is taking sides
But all the worries that occupy the back of my mind
Could it be this misery will suffice

I've become
The simple souvenir of someone's kill
and like the sea
I'm constantly changing from calm to ill
madness fills my heart and soul
as if the great divide could swallow me whole
Oh, how I'm breaking down..

Someone come and
Someone come and save my life
Maybe I'll sleep when I am dead
But now it's like the night
Is taking sides
But all the worries that occupy the back of my mind
Could it be this misery will suffice
oh, with my life...
