Let Me Sleep Beside You (3:28)

Cover of Nothing Has Changed

From Nothing Has Changed and 10 other releases

“Let Me Sleep Beside You” was a song Bowie recorded as an intended single in September ‘67 (along with Karma Man), his first recording with Tony Visconti. Following the music hall stylings of his debut album, Bowie explained he wanted to record some “top ten rubbish” to follow up its predecessor Love You Till Tuesday, despite its rather adult themes. Decca however chose not to release it (nor its replacements When I Live My Dream or In The Heat Of The Morning), resulting in Bowie leaving the label.

Bowie revisited this track for 2001’s “Toy”, which also remains unreleased.

Baby, baby, brush the dust of youth from your shoulder
Because the years of fretting days are right behind you now
Don't return to fields of green where rainbow secrets were told
Place your ragged doll with all the toys and things and deeds
