"Sleep" as written by and Imogen Heap....
How can it feel so nice?
Why does it feel so right?
I think I've been somewhere special
I want to go back there

Sleep
I think I will
Go back to sleep

Oh, it's so cold and shivery outside my cocoon
Now I'm on my way

Sleep
Oh sleep
Sleep.

    General CommentThis song is about holing up and not coming out into the outside world, almost as if the person was depressed. That's my take on it, at least -- I can relate to my interpretation.

    That being said, this song always puts me to sleep. ;)

    General Commenti think she is talking about living on dreams, in dreams everything can be perfect. so why stay awake faceing the awfull reality.
    The song is very soft, it makes me feel like im safe, it feels good.

    General CommentThat nostalgic, wistful feeling of awakening from a dream of bliss and beauty, in which all of your hopes and desires came true. I'm not sure if she could have picked a better instrument for this song than the violin in the beginning.

    General CommentI feel in love with this song instantly.
    I reccomend it to anyone who loves soft/ relazing songs.
    It's so peacful, the way she sings it.
    This song always puts me to sleep, but not in a bad way.
    It's so beautiful that it lulls you to sleep.

    General CommentI can relate to the interpretation above as well. And I'm listening right now to the song, before I go to sleep... Without mentioning that it is really cold and shivering outside (my cocoon) - in both meanings, the climate and the feeling of being safe while hidden from the world.
