How Do You Sleep?

Album: Heaven in this Hell (2013)
  • Orianthi wrote this soulful ballad on a piano. The Australian musician told MusicRadar.com that lyrically the song is "a true story." She explained: "It's about this guy... it's about getting hurt. Music can be therapy for me. I love getting letters from people or Facebook messages from them. They tell me that I've helped them through tough times, and so that gives you a lot of incentive to write."
