Awkward. But the plot thickens. Googled a bit with more info and I can't find full credits for the song, but the Wiki page on LP says:
In June 2011, LP co-wrote "Afraid to Sleep", which was performed by NBC's The Voice finalist Vicci Martinez and reached #10 on the iTunes Top Singles Chart.
It doesn't say who she co-wrote it with though.
No Angel will solve the mystery
Dido composed the song, while Billy Steinberg wrote the lyrics. Since Dido decided not to include the track to "No Angel" album, nor to record it properly, the song remained unreleased, so Billy just recycled the lyrics. He is credited as a co-writer, but since the melody was completily changed, Dido is not listed as an author. It was not ok to present it as an original song though.
