"Trouble Sleeping" as written by Corinne Bailey Rae, Steve Chrisanthou and John Beck....
It's late and I'm feeling so tired
Having trouble sleeping
This constant compromise between thinking and breathing

Could it be I'm suffering because I'll never give in?
Won't say that I'm falling in love
(Please, please,) tell me I don't seem myself
Couldn't I blame something else? (No, don't say it)
Don't say I'm falling in love

Some kind of therapy is all I need
Please, believe me (Please, believe me)
Some instant remedy that can cure me completely

Could it be I'm suffering because I'll never give in?
Won't say that I'm falling in love
(Please, please,) tell me I don't seem myself
Couldn't I blame something else? (No, don't say it)
Don't say I'm falling in love

Ooo
'Cause I've been there before, and it's not enough
So nobody say it (so nobody say it)
Don't even say it (Don't you even say it)
I've got my eyes shut, won't look
Oh no, I'm not in love

Could it be I'm suffering because I'll never give in?
Won't say that I'm falling in love (falling in love)
(Please, please,) tell me I don't seem myself
Couldn't I blame something else? (No, don't say it)
Just don't say I'm falling in love (Don't say that I'm falling in love)
Could it be I'm suffering softly (Don't say that I'm falling in love)
Caught on all what you've been giving me (Don't say that I'm falling in love)
Falling in love (Don't say that I'm falling in love)

Couldn't I blame something else?
(Don't say, don't say)
(Don't say, don't say)

(Don't say that I'm falling in love) Don't say
(Don't say that I'm falling in love)
(Don't say that I'm falling in love) Ooo, oh
(Don't say that I'm falling in love) Yeah
(Don't say that I'm falling in love) Oh

    General CommentWhy am I the first to comment on this song? This song is great! I love the tune and beat, its so damn catchy. The song is always stuck in my head, but I don't mind too much. I guess this song's about somebody who tries to keep talking themselves that they're not in love. It's like they're in a state of denial. It seems that they're scared of falling in love again, cause they've been hurt before. Something to that aspect. One of favs from Corinne.

    General CommentIts about the feeling of saying to yourself " oh god im not falling in love" because you know the feeling of ecstasy and pain mixed together so if you dont admit it to yourself youll be fine. or so the theory is.Its basically trying to find anything to blame except love,.

    General CommentTo Me, this is the ebst song on the CD.
    I think we have all had those nights where we couldn't sleep, or had those jitters thinking about someone. And vice versa, had those nights where we knew that we were falling for someone, but our mind says no and our hearts say yes. This song portrays that stuggle between the two. It's so cute and the video is great. I love it, and i LOVVEEE CBR.

    General CommentAll too frequently do I tell myself this.

    "just dont say I'm falling in love,"

    and then...

    "cause ive been there before and its not enough,"

    because you get sick of being in love, and you dont know whether love is worth the heartache.

    General CommentI lost so much sleep thinking about this one guy. I hate him sometimes because I blame him for making me lose my sleep and my sanity. There are times I think he's not worth the heart ache but then I can't stop myself, no matter how hard I tell myself to stop having these stupid feelings. I always dream of "some instant remedy" but darn it all, it doesn't exist. So here I am, still in love and still losing sleep. And this song is here to comfort me by telling me just how heart sick and in denial I am.

    General CommentI know that everybody is entitled to their respective opinion but what I hate is when people comment such as "I love this song...It's my fave....Its a great song...blah blah etc..--your not actually helping in giving the meaning of this song...so better keep your comment to yourself.....

    Needless to say, (but im still going to say it).. its about a person having difficulty in sleeping... there is someone who thinks that you're in love with him/her but actually your not.....it may also mean that your tired of being in love...


    just don't say I'm falling in love
    .......
    I've got my eyes shut,
    Won’t look,
    Oh, no I'm not in love.
    Could it be I'm suffering....don't say that I’m falling in love

    General CommentMy god, only 1 page of comments? Peoples taste in music must clearly suck then. Anyweigh, I think this song is about (basically what every1 else is saying) About her not being able to sleep because she has fallen for someone when shes not ready to.

    General CommentIt scares her to be in love. But she is, she definitely is.



    She doesn't to hear that though, because that would make it all too real.


    I don't really like this song, but I can relate on so many different levels.
