"Between Sheets" as written by and Imogen Jennifer Jane Heap....
You and me, between sheets
It just doesn't get better than this
The many windswept yellow stickies of my mind
Or the molten emotional front line
I couldn't care less, I'm transfixed in this absolute bliss


The sweet sleepless tumbling night
Mmm and the morning on your skin, a loved up light
Tracing patterns in the maze of your back
Softly softly the goose bumps, like that

And then a kiss

Mmm, maybe another


And another mmm

    General CommentAnyone else think this song eerily echos The Shins' song "Kissing the Lipless"

    General CommentThere's similarities, yes. But this appears to be a very loving song.

    Imogen said the only time she stopped thinking about her album was 'the morning after' if you catch my drift. She said placed it right in the middle of the album to highlight the moment of calm. I always thought it was about sex when you're in love, but Imogen's version is about sex with anyone. It's open to interpretation. Either way it's incredibly sweet.

    Some of these lyrics are wrong. From the CD booklet:

    Are the molten emotional frontline
    should be
    Or the molten, emotional frontline

    Ooh and the morning on your skin and laughter light
    should be
    Ooh and the morning on your skin, a loved up light (I thought she was saying laughter lines at first)

    Again again
    should be
    Mmm, mabye another (minor, but it has to be said)

    General CommentImogen's rest area, if this were a game ;)

    But yes, just that time just after sex and perhaps before sleep... Well no, unless you've been going at it all night (It's that "morning" line that throws it off...) But in my head it's that^ tiny window of bliss. I imagine the morning after would feel a little less "omgWOW" unless you two really like each other.

    General CommentWhat really made that impression on me is the final few notes and vocalizations. The song is fairly clearly about exercising sexuality, but not in the frivolous methods critiqued in that Shins song.
