Story Behind The Song

Recorded in the bedroom of independent singer/songwriter Mitch Welling, Sleep takes the ever-growing DIY genre "Bedroom Music" to new levels. Sleep is the first song to 13 track concept album sharing the same title.

Song Description

Lyrically, this song touches many topics including anxiety, insomnia, self realization, desperation, and heartbreak. Still, tucked away in what is obviously a very sad introduction lies an overwhelming sense of humanity. The dark and catchy low-fi sound secures attention, but it is the raw, relatable nature of Sleep that stands out above the rest.

I lose control of my heart
and can't keep up without losing my breath
It's been this way from the start
I need rest

I'll go to sleep at a decent time when I find something worth waking up for (x2)

The days are long
when I keep checking my phone
to see you haven't called
at all

This is where I die
Oh I thought I was the best part of your life
Oh I thought I was the only one inside
Now I'm pretty sure that I
I was wrong.
