Ben Gallaway’s songs are always soulful, though “Do I Sleep” has a bit more of a traditional R&B vibe than some of his other songs. There’s a kind of ache to this sound, a doubt that it’s possible to fully satisfy another person. And yet there is that longing for transcendence. As always, though, there’s a wonderful sense of mystery about his words and music.
Is it cold and lonely beside me? Have I kept you safe or left you in fear?
Great lines, these.
