But if you were desperately trying to Shazam your way to listening to it all day long, there’s no need – we’ve worked out that the song is Dark Dark Dark’s “In Your Dreams”, released on their album “Wild Go” in 2010.

You can listen to the song above, and if you’re curious about the lyrics (and how they relate to Thirteen’s own tale of loneliness and deceit), you can read them below.

Kiss your face

Lay your head down
Lay your head down

When you’re alone, you’re so alone
When you’re alone, you’re so alone

Now you want to go where no one is lonely
And rose water drips from my mouth like honey

Oh….
