about

"Crying in Your Sleep," the newest release from Iska Dhaaf, tells a multilayered story that revolves around two separate dialogs: one from the waking world and one from the dimension of dreams. The production of the song has an ethereal delicacy that cycles around a driving bass line and clusters of electronic percussion. Beautiful pads and arpeggiations flutter and dance around the steady beat and heavenly keys. The main melody drifts in and out as a sweet lullaby as Benjamin Verdoes's gentle voice lilts and sways. Melancholy and sincere, "Crying in Your Sleep," flows through the currents of a lucid dream.

lyrics

Love, I’ve been thinking
What’s this life that we’re living
It’s true, I’ve been untrue
It’s not fair, but I told you, don’t keep me here

Crying in your sleep
Crying in your sleep
Crying in your sleep again

Love, what you thinking
We’ve been trying
Been persistent
It’s not like we can see the future
It’s not like I believe in fate
Oh you’ve been

Crying in your sleep
Crying in your sleep
Crying in your sleep again

Crying in your sleep
Crying in your sleep
Crying in your sleep again

No one knows what’s in your soul
So try to let it go

Love, what are we doing
True, we’re only human
It’s not like we can change the past
It’s not like I can take it back
Oh, you’ve been

Crying in your sleep
Crying in your sleep
Crying in your sleep again

Crying in your sleep
Crying in your sleep
Crying in your sleep again
Oh you’ve been

Crying in your sleep
Crying in your sleep
Crying in your sleep again

Crying in your sleep
Crying in your sleep
Crying in your sleep again
