about

the dolphin post : was the non-de pluck for Ian Osborne, a Norfolk based one (at that moment) man band

sighs and mirrors : is the name of his last CD as the dolphin post..... the dolphin is now in hibernation having made a lovely bed under the stairs. Ian is now surrounded by a group of musicians he still cant believe his luck in meeting. They go by the name of "the Osborne files" and the 'files fly (www.osbornefiles.co.uk)

enthusiasm over accuracy : is how he describes his approach "I long ago realised that virtuosity like virtue would always be beyond my grasp, so clutching at straws I went for feel over fluidity"

corner of the room : is the name he has given to his studio. A corner of his study overladen with instruments, microphones and headphones to record his hushed vocals so as not to wake anyone else after they've gone to bed

cover songs : treated with respect but with a wish to do something other than copy. "I loath tribute acts, if you want to hear the record listen to the record"

a late starter : Accurately described as middle aged if you knew anyone of 112, he came to songwriting late after an unhappy love affair with a job.... " now six years later...its a dripping tap and I cant turn it off"

into his anecdotage : a career working in TV and with many famed musicians from Elvis Costello to Des O'Connor and Stevie Wonder to Rod Jane & Freddy means that just like he told Kenny Everett he cant help dropping names into the conversation.

lyrics

Sleepwell and warm my love

no chords, just repeated figures and riffs

No need to thank me
I've never understood
I've never seen the logic
Don't ever think I could

If there's a reason
It's long out of my grasp
I've never heard a question
I've never had to ask

Sleep well and warm my love
Sleep through all the night
Sleep well and warm my love
I'm with you every night
Sleep well and warm my love
Sleep through all the night
Sleep well and warm my love
We'll meet again in light

My mind it wanders
I wonder does yours too
Going round in circles
Coming back to you

Don't say you're sorry
There really is no need
It's not like you ignored me
Or paid my needs no heed

Sleep well and warm my love
Sleep through all the night
Sleep well and warm my love
I'm with you every night
Sleep well and warm my love
Sleep through all the night
Sleep well and warm my love
We'll meet again in light

If you'd never walked this earth
My world would never turn
If I'd never held you close
The lack of touch would burn

My eyes are wide open
My blood pumps in my veins
My arms are just as wide
To welcome you again

Sleep well and warm my love
Sleep through all the night
Sleep well and warm my love
I'm with you every night
Sleep well and warm my love
Sleep through all the night
Sleep well and warm my love
We'll meet again in light
