"Sleep Don't Weep" as written by and Damien George Rice....
Sleep don't weep
My sweet love
Your face so wet
And your day
Is rough

So do what you must do
To find yourself
Wear another shoe
Paint my shelf
There's times that I was broke
And you stood strong
I think I've found a place where I

Sleep don't weep
My sweet love
Your face its all wet
Cause our days were rough

So do what you must do
To fill that hole
Wear another shoe
To comfort the soul
There's times that I was broke
And you stood strong
I think I've found a place where I feel I will

Sleep don't weep
My sweet love
Your face (My face)
It's all wet
Cause my day
Was rough

So do what you must do (Do what you must do)
To find yourself
Wear another shoe (Wear another shoe)
Or paint my shelf (Paint my shelf)
There's times that I was broke (Times that I was broke)
And you stood strong
I hope I find a place where I belong (Hope I find a place to)

[Repeat: x2]
Sleep don't weep
My sweet love
My face
It's so wet
Cause my day
Was rough

    General CommentThis song is about forgiveness... like most of the songs on this album, the identities of the singer and his subject are not clear. Who needs to be forgiven? Maybe the affair ended and she came home (along with the animals?) and he forgives her. Maybe she decided to leave with the one who drives her wild and she needs to forgive herself. But it is time to them to put their "day" behind them and heal. True love is a place where you belong.
