Not Sleeping (5:11)

Cover of No One Can Ever Know

From No One Can Ever Know

James Graham on “Not Sleeping”: 
I’d put this song in the same category as ‘Nil’ and ‘Sick’, it’s a pretty heavy song in lyrical terms. The first and second verse has a repeated lyrical section which goes: “You left too early, now it’s over done. Now you’re only, two feet off the ground”, the only difference in the second verse being “only” is swapped with “lonely”. This song again is a bit of a slow-burner but it contains some of my favourite lyrics from the album, another one being ” be careful who your arms around”. This song was also part of the first batch of demos.

    GOOD. However, the remix of this jam that was done by The Horrors' Tom Furse -titled "(The Horrors Dub Mix)"- is the best version, IMO.
