LYRICS: (from the original and edited for content)
Ohh Ohh Oh She was standing there by The broken tree Her hands are all twisted She's pointing at me I was damned by light comin' Out of her eyes she Spoke with a voice that Disrupted the sky She said walk on over here To the bitter shade I will wrap you in my arms And you'll know you've been saved Let me sign Let me sign
Note: As mentioned in the above discription, this video features Rob Pattinson THE MAN and his music, not the character he portrays. Rob was doing music way before Twilight. ('I have been playing the piano for my entire life --since I was three or four and I used to play classical guitar from when I was about five to twelve years of age. Then I didn't play guitar for years. About four or five years ago, I got out the guitar again and just started playing blues and stuff'. ~ Quote taken from "The Robert Pattinson Album" a biography by Paul Stenning.) His voice is reminiscent of the likes of Van Morrison and Jeff Buckley (two of his favorite artists), hence his raw, bluesy, folksy sound. Rob has a very soulful voice that touches you deep within....you can really feel it in this song....it gives me chills. I selected pictures of him not smiling, somber,....he looks like he has a lot on his mind. As far as the pictures of him smoking (don't judge!).....it just fit the mood of the song or at least my interpretation of it. I imagined him at the beginning where you hear this gritty guitar chord, having a smoke out back to take the edge off, before going on stage to perform and of course having one to relax after performing. He looks so James Dean.
Check out Rob's other songs on YouTube. He has been recorded (unknowingly) singing in some clubs. Look for the following songs; "I Was Broken", "I'll Be Your Lover Too", "To Roam", "Stray Dog", "In Your Head" and an almost full live version of "Let Me Sign". Some recordings are clearer than others. My favorite is "I Was Broken", he sings it with so much heart and soul!
As you may know, this bit was recorded specifically to be used for a scene (ballet studio) in the movie "Twilight". This song is a bonus track and can only be found only on the Twilight soundtrack when purchased on ITunes.
What does the song mean? Interpretations are subjective, but here is some food for thought. My take is that a person is so enamored with another that they would "sign" their soul over to the devil just to be with the object of their desires even if for just one night.
************************************************************************* The following are the official lyrics to the original song written by Marcus Foster and Bobby Long and can be found on their respective MySpace pages.
She was standing there by the broken tree Her hands were all twisted she was pointing at me I was damned by the light coming out of her eyes She spoke with a voice that disrupted the sky She said ' Come on over to the bitter shade, I will wrap you in my arms and you'll know you've been saved' Let me sign, let me sign, can't fight the devil so just let me sign.
I was out for a drink in a soho bar The air was smoked out liked a cheap cigar She rose out of her seat like a painted ghost She was the woman that I wanted the most As she reached for my arm I gave her my hand I said 'Lay me down easy let me understand' Let me sign, let me sign, can't fight the devil so just let me sign.
As I walked through the door she was still in my head As I entered the room she was laid there in bed She reached out for me all twisted in black I was on my way down, never coming back let me sign, let me sign, can't fight the devil so just let me sign. let me sign, let me sign, can't fight the devil so just let me sign.
