"Sheets" as written by and Damien Jurado....
Is he still coming around like an injured bird needing a nest?
A place to rest his head in a song you'll regret
Lord knows I don't want to compete
But I still sleep in the very sheets he's been in

Swallow him whole like a pill that makes you choke and stills your soul
You have the nerve to look me in the eyes and lie
Send him back
I'll share the trap that you have me in

Is he still coming around like an injured bird needing a nest?
A place to rest his head in a song you'll regret
Still you take him
Lord knows I don't want to compete
But I still sleep in the very sheets he's been in

Swallow him whole like a pill that makes you choke and stills your soul
You have the nerve to look me in the eyes and lie
Send him back
I'll share the trap that you have me in

(Still you sleep in the very sheets he's been in)

    My InterpretationI actually think this song is about being with someone who is still broken up over a lost love. He is sleeping in the same sheets because she still hasn't changed them, because she still isn't over that relationship. He broke her up, and she left him, but he keeps coming around and she just can't let him go entirely.
