Ashley Monroe - The Blade Lyrics




I let your love in, I have the scar
I felt the razor against my heart
I thought we were both in all the way
But you caught it by the handle
And I caught it by the blade

You said "goodbye, it's not the end
And if you need me, I'm still your friend"
Well, that's easy for you to say
Cause you caught it by the handle
And I caught it by the blade

That's the risk you run when you love, when you love
And you give it all you've got to give
Knowing all along there's a chance, there's a chance
You'll reach and they won't
You'll bleed and they don't

For you, it's over; for me, it's not
I kept trying and you just stopped
Now I know how you can sound so brave
Cause you caught it by the handle, baby
And I caught it by the blade

That's the risk you run when you love, when you love
And you give it all you've got to give
Knowing all along there's a chance, there's a chance
You'll reach and they won't
You'll bleed and they don't

I thought we were both in all the way
But you caught it by the handle
And I caught it by the blade
You caught it by the handle, baby
And I caught it by the blade

  24. Tee Bee

    I let your love in, I have the scar
    I felt the razor against my heart
    I thought we were both in all the way
    But you caught it by the handle
    And I caught it by the blade

    You said "goodbye, it's not the end
    And if you need me, I'm still your friend"
    Well, that's easy for you to say
    Cause you caught it by the handle
    And I caught it by the blade

    That's the risk you run when you love, when you love
    And you give it all you've got to give
    Knowing all along there's a chance, there's a chance
    You'll reach and they won't
    You'll bleed and they don't

    For you, it's over; for me, it's not
    I kept trying and you just stopped
    Now I know how you can sound so brave
    Cause you caught it by the handle, baby
    And I caught it by the blade

    That's the risk you run when you love, when you love
    And you give it all you've got to give
    Knowing all along there's a chance, there's a chance
    You'll reach and they won't
    You'll bleed and they don't

    I thought we were both in all the way
    But you caught it by the handle
    And I caught it by the blade
    You caught it by the handle, baby
    And I caught it by the blade

  25. Jesus flower child

    This is real country music, real music point blank period. She should be getting more recognition... this is my kind of country not the cheesy crap thats popular now, although i do indulge sometimes Im not gonna act like I'm better because I'm totally not, but really mainly LOVE and listeb this kind if country music.

  26. Art3mis

    When I first heard this version I wasn't sure what the fuss was about. But then I heard Jamie sing it. Jamie Floyd wrote this song and she sings it with such emotion and depth. I hope Jamie gets the recognition she deserves for writing such a beautiful song.

  27. yorkshire fisherman

    Discovered this album on the Jet Airways flight between Heathrow and Mumbai. Brilliant ! similar to Patty Griffin I think. Not a duff track. Just sent for Like a Rose album !

  28. florancerudi

    the voice of an Angel somewhere in between Lee Ann Womack Dolly Parton and Alison Krauss

  29. Scarletts meal

    This is a classic cut.

  30. BonoLightier

    "You say goodbye, it's not the end
    And if you need me, I'm still your friend
    Well, that's easy for you to say....." fuck

    +You are a good loking girl i would not cheat on you have a nice day RickAriel Murphy

  54. kutacv

    Her music needs to be played on radio. That is the bottom line. Ashley Monroe is the best.

    Garry Simmerman

    Nashville sure has their head up their ass by not listening to her

  55. divashalo

    this song is amazing. such a shame it is not getting airplay. but then again, of course not. it actually has depth to it.

    Amanda Brigges

    right amazing song

    rubbersole

    +divashalo Yeah they don't play actual country on country radio anymore. You've got to buy a 5 gal pail of tooth whitener and sing pop/rock songs like Luke Bryan.

    divashalo

    @rubbersole79 or just straight up bro country wannabe rap trash like florida georgia line or thomas rhett.

    Scarletts meal

    Gatekeepers are to blame I think. How for example does kick the dust-up become a hit? Why is music as high caliber is this suffering? And is the industry's fault or the customer's responsibility? I imagine it is a combo.

  56. JusJukin Allen

    WOULD LOVE TO HEAR HER OR THE ANNIES DO A REMAKE OF THE SONG JESSI COLTER DID TELL ME BABY WHY YOU BEEN GONE SO LONG. ASHLEY'S VOICE COULD REDO IT WONDERFULLY OR ALL THE GIRLS TOGETHER. ITS SUCH A GOOD SONG AND WOULD BE SO KICK ASS TO HEAR HER (or all 3) SING I COULD A FIFTH OF THUNDERBIRD AND WRITE MYSELF A SAD SONG TELL ME BABY WHY YOU BEEN GONE SO LONG.

    W.K. Bell

    JusJukin Allen Eleven Hundred Springs songs, so good to know others still enjoy them too!

  57. ed mullins

    OMG!  A smash!  Classic country chords and clever, sentimental lyrics...love it!!
