Song Lyric Sunday – No One’s Here to Sleep by Naughty Boy

While I was home sick this week, I started binge watching a series on Netflix. Not only did it give me something quite entertaining to do while I was home (in between working, of course) but it also offered this week’s theme and song selection. I love how movies and other shows intermix music to bring stories to life. Sometimes the songs are pretty benign and not worth my time, but sometimes they are rare gems. I didn’t think Siri would be able to name that tune, since it was background music, but she did. The only thing she got wrong was the artist.

To be honest, I thought this one was by Bastille. Dan Smith’s voice is just too distinct. But I found I wasn’t too far off. I found this from searching the lovely Google: ‘No One’s Here To Sleep is a song by British record producer Shahid “Naughty Boy” Khan featuring Bastille, from his 2013 album, Hotel Cabana.’ As you will also see below, Dan Smith co-wrote the song with Shahid Khan.

I fell in love with the song after only hearing probably one stanza and I can tell you that the rest of it doesn’t disappoint. I hope you enjoy!

Every carpet, every floor
Everywhere I look, I fall
Climbing up the walls
I’m climbing up the walls
What goes on behind these doors
I’ll keep mine and you’ll keep yours
We all have our secrets
We all have our secrets
Behind every door
Is a fall, a fall and
No one’s here to sleep
You were always faster than me
I’ll never catch up with you, with you
Oh I can feel them coming for me
And you were always faster than me
I’ll never catch up with you, with you
Oh I can feel them coming for me
Here’s the pride before the fall
Oh, your eyes, they show it all
I can see it coming
I can see it coming
As I rise up through each floor
Shit gets dark and you lose it all
I can hear it coming
I can hear the drumming
Behind every door
Is a fall, a fall and
No one’s here to sleep
You were always faster than me
I’ll never catch up with you, with you
Oh I can feel them coming for me
And you were always faster than me
I’ll never catch up with you, with you
Oh I can feel them coming for me
You were always faster than me
I’ll never catch up with you, with you
Oh I can feel them coming for me
And you were always faster than me
I’ll never catch up with you, with you
Oh I can feel them coming for me
(You were always faster than me
I will always catch up with you)
Songwriters: Shahid Khan / Dan Smith
