"Please Please" as written by Robert Peter Williams and Stephen Duffy....
Let me lie down
Please don't wake me
Nothing's sacred
And no one saved me

In my black eye
I can feel it
Moving closer
Can't you hear it

The only gift you gave to me
Was self-fulfilling prophecy
I need to change the sounds
That shape my life

And if you die before I leave
What on earth becomes of me
Look around there's no one here
To love me and hold me

Take me dancing
I love music
Keep on singing
We won't lose it

Picture me there
Missing no one
If young hearts run free
Why can't we go on

Go on 'til they kick us out
We've everything to talk about
I could bring a song into your life

If you should die before I leave
What on earth becomes of me
Look around there's no one here
To love me and hold me

Maybe I've been away too long
I know I'm not always right but is that wrong
They say there's nothing I can do
But talk to strangers and wait for you

If you should die before I leave
What on earth becomes of me
Look around there's no one
To love me and hold me

If you should die before I leave
What on earth becomes of me
Look around there's no one
To love me and hold me

    My InterpretationThis is one of the few Robbie songs that doesn't leave too much to the imagination. It is either entirely fictious or very literal and given his interest in the paranormal it does give one reason to question.

    Ghosts, demons, monsters, they can have any number of interpretations and historically when used in reference to R.W. they tend to be with regards to drug and alcohol abuse. In the case of this song however, no such reference is made. It seems to be speaking quite directly and honestly about ghosts and demons to a literal someone. "don't send the sandman to a sensitive kid," and "you're breaking my heart." These lyrics are poignant and disturbing, not because they can't be true, but because to the person that wrote them they might be.

    R.W. seems far to sane, generally even (with the exception of the odd flights of fancy) and frankly intelligent to assume something as far as drug induced psychosis. So assuming then that this song is not gobbledegook written for the sake of writing, then this is the story of him fighting demons, literal ones and winning...and that there's someone else..."you're breaking my heart." If true, it is both terrifying and heartbreaking, though certainly an accident where further disaster can only be avoided by avoidance hence the heartbreak which is certain to be reciprocated.
