#12 – Sophie B. Hawkins – “As I Lay Me Down” – (1994)

“If felt like springtime on this February morning…” “As I Lay Me Down” wasn’t the most successful single from Sophie B. Hawkins (it hit #6, “Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover” hit #5) – it is definitely her best. It has a good beat and tempo but the lyrics are restraining in that, although there is an upbeat tempo in the background, they set the pace, which is smooth and relaxed. This is a good song.
