‘Asleep’ touches on despair reaching depths surpassing any means of redemption. While it seems tangential to people without a death wish, we can relate to it as it bears semblance to any lingering sadness left behind in memory. It revives nostalgic connotations of lament or regrets we have, into the present. And it makes us linger till the last note. It’s beautiful, sort of, in a nice and unfortunate way.
