Adrumadrum overheard the lyrics to this song the other night and commented on the lines “I’ll begin anew, whatever you do, I’ll do / Wherever you choose to go, I’ll go” which I did not even consider in the context of the show. Let’s assume that it is intentional and therefore clever.
When I was first listening to the music from Sleep No More, I thought they chose the song because it’s so easy to hear the words “Weep no more, by baby” as “Sleep no more, my baby.” I heard him say “Weep no more” as well, but my brain had convinced me that earlier in the song he actually sang “Sleep” and then varied it in a later chorus. Nope. Just a misheard lyric on my part.
Here are all the lyrics, which some may remember more fondly as the soundtrack to their toast with the speakeasy bartender.
