"You On My Mind In My Sleep" as written by and Richard Ashcroft....
you ain't ever seen
the way to find your dreams
forget what's within within
'cause who you've been you've been

If all we lose is the skin
I'm putting you under within
we're gonna make this life together

the symtoms are too deep
I got you on my mind in my sleep

do you know how hard I try
to lose this foolish pride
can you take me as I am
can you understand me
unchain me now

If all we lose is the skin
I'm putting you under within
we're gonna make this life together

the symtoms are too deep
I got you on my mind in my sleep

I got you on my mind in my sleep
heavenly body

    General Commenti find it very difficult to listening to the 1st album because it strikes a chord and i start crying. it's very clear and pure

    General CommentFirst this is a beautiful song, very much something Verve could have done together on Urban Hymns. I just like the sentiment of this song. It's a total declaration of love, with all those little "am I good enough?" questions that surface running through out the song. Quite lovely really.

    General Comment"If all we lose is the skin, I'm putting you under within", what a great romantic line. To come up with a lyric like that shows how much he must feel for this person. Ashcroft is a total genius. A great poet as well as a great musician.

    General CommentI think this is the best song of Richard Ashcrofts solo career, it should of been a single!

    General Commenti have no idea how many times i cried listening to this song. my ex, the love of my life, gave it to me years ago. made me feel so speechless. so honest and so pure. what we've lost b.,wont ever be recovered. thats a real tragedy.

    General CommentPure bliss... This song is gorgeous! gets the water works happening at times when i think about how much I love someone that I just can't have! It's a long story but I can't give him what he needs and its too hard for us to be together... it sucks! This song however, is one of my favourites and i agree with Charon, quite lovely really!
