Craig David: “Insomnia” from a Broken Heart

British R&B star Craig David is in love, and he can’t sleep – at least in his song lyrics. His single “Insomnia” spent nine weeks on the Billboard Pop 100 Airplay chart, peaking at #62.

In 2000 the 19-year-old David became the youngest British male solo artist to have a number-one single. But he’s still trying to
build momentum for his music in the U.S.

“Insomnia” describes what happens to his heart and to his sleep when the woman he loves walks out on him:

Because I can't sleep til you're next to me
No I can't live without you no more
Oh I stay up til you're next to me
Til this house feels like it did before
Feels like insomnia ah ah, Feels like insomnia ah ah
Feels like insomnia ah ah, Feels like insomnia ah ah

recent study indicates that David isn't the only person to experience this kind of insomnia.

The study involved 360 women; it examined the link between relationship status and sleep. Results show that women who lost a partner during the eight-year follow-up period had the worst sleep.
