Ray Lamontagne

I’m trying to get myself geared up for a good week.  Life is heavy.  Life is hard.  But there’s goodness somewhere.  I think.  If not, there’s always music to move us through the thickness. 

Ray Lamontagne, my fave, Sunday night at the Hollywood Bowl.  I’m expecting magic.  If you don’t know him – go to You Tube and try Jolene, Trouble, Shelter (live), You are the Best Thing, or Please.

Today I’m listening to A Falling Through

Laid our blessings on the ground,
The softening of sound
Draws us closed again

Stay, stay and watch the coals
Till they cease to glow
Like empty promises

Why, Why did you go, why did you go away?
Why, Why did you go, why did you go away?

Baby?

There’s nothing I can say
Nothing I can do
To bring you back again

This of life I know is true
It’s all a falling through
And so I reach for you

Why, Why did you go, why did you go away?
Why, Why did you go, why did you go away?

Don’t you care
That it may seem unfair?
(You steal things you ought to borrow)
Don’t you find
That it may seem unkind?
(I’d rather breathe than drown in sorrow)

Why, why did you go
Why did you go away baby
