Sleep No More, My Baby?

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.

Try to forget, get a smile upon your face

Face the sun and let it find us

Weep no more my baby

Your baby’s home again

I love you so, so believe in what I say,

Say we leave the past behind us

Weep no more my baby,

Your baby’s home again.

I’ll begin anew, whatever you do, I’ll do

Wherever you choose to go, I’ll go

And I’ll be to you whatever you want me to

Whatever is in my heart, you’ll know

So try to forget, get a smile upon your face

Face the sun and let it find us

Oh weep no more my baby

Your baby’s home again.
