about

"Sleep" is a one-off collaboration between two unique New Orleans musicians, the reclusive electronic artist Nounverber and singer/songwriter Becca Stone. Becca's clear vocal delivery would usually be a contrast to Nounverber's usual scattered electronics, whose style has a more laid back and subdued feel this time around.

Relying on live instruments and less on synthesizers, the music has "dark and dreamier Sade vibes", as described by Swedish Columbia artist Brahm.

LYRICS

Dark hallways
Surround me in my dreams
There you are
No comfort to me

Day breaks
And I forget all I’ve seen
You are gone
A distant memory

Carry my heart in my hands
I’ll be at peace
if you would just let me sleep

Please, just let me sleep

Far away
I have travelled for so long
Night comes
I’m back in the same place

Dark hallways
Surround me as I wake
You’re still gone
Always be gone

Carry the thought in my head
I’ll speak my piece
If you would just let me sleep

These years
Took their toll
Slipped through my hands
And left my soul

Dark hallways
Far behind me now
I found a door
I found a way out

Carry my heart in my hands
I’ll find my peace
If you would just let me sleep

Carry the thought in my head
I’ll speak my piece
If you would just let me sleep
