Quotes Neil Crossley

'And then he just sent me this song. Which I just thought was incredibly good'

'And then I came to Abbey Road, and just happened to walk in when Tony Visconti was mixing it. And it was just quite amazing just to sit there, in the corner, and watch!'

 

Lyrics

She pulls herself out from the bedclothes and she opens the curtains wide

Stares down to the valley where the healthy and the happy float by

 

She says “I could sleep for England”

 

Driving on a wet night, kiss under a strip light – the same old craving

Slammed doors, feel shaken, all the useless medication you’ve tried

 

Sleep for England

 

Chancers and schemers, righteous believers

Life’s little dreamers all gathered here in one place

 

Sleep for England (3x)

Drive home on a wet night, kiss under a strip light again
