"Sleepless" as written by Kate C. Havnevik and Guy Sigsworth....
Catch me as I fly, passing by at night
Watch me as I go, outside
It's another world when the moon is high
And the walking keeps me breathing

Sleepless, I shouldn't be here
Sleepless, twenty four hours of searching

Down the narrow streets, I can feel the breeze
Going small and tired like me
Drink some more of this, feel the morning bliss
Songs of airplanes in my head

Sleepless, I shouldn't be here
Sleepless, twenty four hours
Sleepless

I have I have to keep walking
Sleepless, twenty four hours of searching
Searching for my life

Sleepless, sleepless
Oh, sleepless, sleepless
Sleepless

    General CommentNo comments?? She sold me with the first "twenty-four hours" line! Vocals are amazing as well as the music in this sad little song.

    So yeah, I think the obvious route for this song is that it's about insomnia, but I also feel it could be about a restless spirit, walking on, trying to find life... or at least rest.

    General CommentI think this song is about her having an affair.
    The lines;
    'Catch me as I fly
    Passing by at night
    Watch me as I go, outside
    It's another world
    When the moon is high
    And the walking keeps,
    Me breathing

    Sleepless,
    I shouldn't be here'

    Talks about her having impaired judgement at night. Maybe she's hooking up with someone at a bar, and she knows its not right,

    'Drink some more of this
    Feel the morning bliss
    Songs of airplanes in my head'

    Some sweet type of hangover?

    'I have I have to keep walking
    Sleepless'

    She's trying to end it.
