Too Drunk To Dream

…ain’t no drinking when the bottle’s dry…

Ray LaMontagne just touched me in my special area

Everyone’s favorite backwoodsman, Ray LaMontagne has returned with a HIGHLY-anticipated new album of material, titled Gossip in the Grain, being released on October 14, 2008 on RCA Records. Here is the second song to be previewed off of the album, titled “Let It Be Me”, and, yes, once again, the bearded one has touched me in my ‘special area’, my cardiac area.

—————————————————————–

There comes a time, a time in everyone’s life
Where nothin’ seems to go your way
Where nothing seems to turn out right
There may come a time, you just can’t seem to find your place
For every door you walk open, seems like you get two slammed in your face.

That’s when you need someone, someone that you can call.
And when all your faith is gone
Feels like you can’t go on
Let it be me
Let it be me
If it’s a friend that you need
Let it be me
Let it be me

Feels like your always comin’ up last
Pockets full of nothin’, ain’t got no cash
No matter where you turn you ain’t got no place to stand
Reach out for something and they slap your hand
I remember all too well
Just how it feels to be all alone
You feel like you’d give anything
For just a little place you can call your own
That’s when you need someone, someone that you can call

And when all your faith is gone
Feels like you can’t go on
Let it be me
Let it be me
If it’s a friend you need
Let it be me
Let it be me.
