I was playing this song on the radio by Allen Stone, and thought to my self, “Self, you have no idea what this fella looks like.”  So I Googled Allen Stone and about fell off my chair.  I know Lin Brehmer’s brothers, even the evil one, but I never met his brother Allen.  Were they separated at birth or what??!!??  Plus pictures of Allen looking ernest and playing acoustic guitar…I’ve seen Lin with the same look.  It’s genetic.  Allen looks like the high school brother spending the weekend on campus with big brother Lin.  The mind reels.

The other strange coincidence is that Allen’s song “Sleep” could be Lin’s theme song.  Every time I hear a song about sleep deprivation, Lin is the first person that comes to mind.

But this guy Allen has such a soulful voice.  And the song is real good.  So give it a listen.  And next time you see Lin, ask how his little brother’s doin’.

Sleep
Songwriters: MAE, AUDRA / STONE, ALLEN NATHAN / ROSE, ANDREW WILLIAM
Spend my nights howlin’ at the moon
Never wake before noon
When the sun it rises
Oh it always rises soon
‘Cause I spend my nights
Howlin’ at the moon

Oh I never get sleep
No I just reach
I can feel it on the ends of my fingers
Taste it on the tips of my teeth
So you see why I never get sleep

Spend my night shootin’ at the stars
Trying to change the world with this guitar
I know it’s a long shot
But it’s working out so far
So I spend my nights
Shootin’ at the stars
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/a/allen+stone/sleep_20985520.html ]
Oh I never get sleep
No I just reach
I can feel it on the ends of my fingers
Taste it on the tips of my teeth
So you see why I never get sleep

(Now sleep)
I’ve already tried
(Drink whisky)
It makes my throat too dry
(Smoke weed)
Makes my eyes all read
(Take a pill Al)
What and end up dead?

I can feel it on the ends of my fingers
Taste it on the tips of my teeth
So you see why I never get sleep

I never get sleep
No I just reach
I can feel it on the ends of my fingers
Taste it on the tips of my teeth
So you see why I never get sleep
Yeah you see why I never get sleep
So you see why I never get sleep
