"Nightingale" is a song by American singer Demi Lovato from her fourth studio album Demi (2013). The song was written by Lovato, Anne Preven, Matt Rad, and Felicia Barton, while production was helmed by Rad and Preven served as a vocal producer. In the track Lovato looks for a hero, someone to lean on, singing, "Sing to me/ I know you're there/ 'Cause baby you're my sanity". During an interview with songwriter and record producer Emanuel Kiriakou she said: "Nightingale is definitely a personal song. It’s about one of my friends, actually, that passed away when we were thirteen. I feel like, sometimes I literally, I know when he’s in the room with me. And, I just have a really strong connection to him. I feel like he’s my nightingale." In other words, she feels like her friend is her guardian angel. The song is entirely dedicated to her friend Trenton Stout, who hung himself at the age of thirteen
