Lyrical Friday

Welcome to Lyrical Friday! Music is so important in all of our creative journeys as well as in our own personal soundtrack of life.  So many songs have influenced me and I want to use this day to put up a video and lyrics of songs from all genre’s that I find to have some sort of beauty or impact, or that I just think are amusing.

Ray LaMontagne is one of my favorite vocalists.  His smoky voice is soothing.  Funny enough, I discovered Ray from a commercial that they still play on TV (yes the one with the dog), and I was shocked to see he was a recent artist. His voice sounds vintage to me. I am so grateful for that commercial.
There are many wonderful choices of Ray’s music that I could feature here today, but this one in particular has always moved me.  The performance below features two of his songs, enjoy.
Ray LaMontagne – Shelter from the 2004 album Trouble.

Shelter
I guess you don’t need it
I guess you don’t want me to repeat it
But everything I have to give I’ll give to you
It’s not like we planned it
You tried to stay, but you could not stand it
To see me shut down slow
as though it was an easy thing to do
Listen when
All of this around us’ll fall over
I tell you what we’re gonna do
You will shelter me my love
And I will shelter you
I will shelter you
I left you heartbroken, but not until those very words were spoken
Has anybody ever made such a fool out of you
It’s hard to believe it
Even as my eyes do see it
The very things that make you live are killing you
Listen when all of this around us’ll fall over
I tell you what we’re gonna do
You will shelter me my love
I will shelter you
Listen when
All of this around us’ll fall over
I tell you what we’re gonna do
Hey you will shelter me my love
I will shelter you
If you shelter me too
I will shelter you
I will shelter you
