Thin Walls Don’t Sleep

This song I wrote to portray the feelings a person has when a relationship is having difficulties. The first line,”Deep in a cloudless night, there’s not a dream in sight,” illustrates some of the problems that occur in those situations. The line, “Thin walls don’t sleep” is a metaphor for both the vulnerability one feels, and for the times when one hears every noise at night, and feels fear, because they are alone.

Thin Walls Don’t Sleep

Deep in a cloudless night, there’s not a dream in sight
No one to hold me tight, since you’ve gone away
Behind a broken door, my footsteps pace the floor
What were we fighting for, I wish you had stayed

THIN WALLS DON’T SLEEP, THE WALLS DON’T SLEEP
THIN WALLS DON’T SLEEP, WHEN WHAT I NEED IS YOU

A creeping on the stairs, noises everywhere
There’s probably nothing there, but I’m still afraid

THIN WALLS DON’T SLEEP, THE WALLS DON’T SLEEP
THIN WALLS DON’T SLEEP, WHEN WHAT I NEED IS YOU

(bridge) the comfort of your arms, helped me through
kept me safe and warm
