LaMontagne, Ray - Let It Be Me Lyrics




There comes a time—a time in everyone's life
Where nothing 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 open
Seems like you get two slammed in your face

That's when you need someone
Someone that you—you can call
When all your faith is gone
It 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 you're always coming up last
Pockets full of nothing, ain't got no cash
No matter where you turn, you ain't got no place to stand
You 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—you can call
When all your faith is gone
It 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

Let it be me
Let it be me
If it's a friend you need
Let it be me
Let it be me
Let it be me

    This popped up on my recommendation and all the memories of us came flooding back like tar slowly filling a room. Cant move, cant breath, cant live properly 10 years later. You won't come back and that's ok but I'm not ok,no matter how many times you asked me if I was happy I'll always tell you yes because I cant admit I'm dead inside without you.

    I listen to this song the nights when I feel alone, I hug my pillow and cry wanting to be with someone.

    Lyrics
    There comes a time
    A time in everyone's life
    Where nothing 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 open
    It feels like two get slammed in your face

    That's when you need someone
    Someone that you can call
    And when all your faith is gone
    It 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 coming up last
    Pockets full of nothing you a'int 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

    Now I remember all too well
    Just how it feels to be all alone
    To 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
    When all your faith is gone
    It 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

    Let it be me
    Let it be me
    If it's a friend that you need
    Let it be me
    Let it be me
    Let it be me

    When this song began to play, I was holding a cup of tea and was looking to my 7 months old daughter with tears in my eyes. She was smiling and was waving her hands towards me. Emotions just poured inside of me . I just love and adore Ray Lamontagne. Being a music composer my self..I often come back to listen to his songs.. I wish one day he would come to India .
