Ray LaMontagne - Part Two - In My Own Way Lyrics




Lock the door
Draw the shades
Close my eyes
I'm miles away
I'll spend the day in my own way

Count the hours
Lock the days
Underneath it all
The rise and swelling of the waves
I'll spend the day in my own way

All the plans
That were made
Let them die
Let them fade
I'll spend the day in my own way

Please understand I'm only human

After all's said and done
Only here a moment
Then the moment's gone
I'll spend the day in my own way

Please understand I'm only human
The times are frail the times are fold
Don't break your back trying to carry it
Wait 'till the world can't please the moon

Lock the door
Draw the shades
Close my eyes
I'm miles away
I'll spend the day in my own way

I'll spend the day in my own way
I'll spend the day in my own way

    the blacklist soundtrack

  2. cjonyx

    OMG! Thank you "Blacklist"! But who's this? Did David Gilmore have a long lost brother?

  3. cjonyx

    I'm here 'cause of "The Blacklist" also, but I almost hit the roof 'cause I when I heard it, I thought it was a new Pink Floyd song. I know I'm about three late, but I've been finally catching up!

  4. Florent

  12. U.S.A.

    Sounds like A modern day Pink Floyd,totally rad.Get the bongs,rolling papers,munchies and some ass!

  13. Richard Roberson

    Sounds like a soft summer sunset

  14. Rupert Ross-Macdonald

    This reminds me so much of Arnold who also channeled that Floyd vibe sometimes. Check out Fleas Don't Fly from 1998's Hillside album (on YouTube).

  22. Craig Torbett

    Ray took some inspiration from Pink floyd on this track, no doubt... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9M23zjNrG9M Great tune, one of my favorites. Ouroboros is an underrated album.

  23. Kira Smith

    Anyone else here because of Carrie Pilby?

  27. paul cardno

    Pink floyd influence strong in this album,Roger waters would be proud to write this.

  28. Stephen Doran

    sounds very like a track off coldplay first album back when they were half decent

  29. Pardon me,

    The first song I ever heard that described my life to a tee. It's like Pink Floyd but not depressing.

  30. Hannah Connell

    The guitar rifts make this actually perfect❤️ Blacklist did a good job picking this one:)

  31. Patrick Chole

    That bridge at 4:23 tho. Radiohead(lucky)/Pink Floyd (breathe) overtones, but that doesn't mean it's not a great song. Everything sounds like something else. Heard this on "the blacklist" and had no idea it was Ray.

    Aliette Gaston

  33. jamesnm21

    Trying new stuff. Dylan did it. The Beatles did it. Some of it will be good some of it will fall flat. Life goes on.

  34. Keith D'Souza

    This song is like Pink Floyd Resurrected. This song is so surreal and instantly transports me to somewhere on the south pacific sea, lying down on a catamaran with azure skys above. Please channel the energy that made this song into more music.

  35. Vincent P.

    Yesssss! Reddington!

  36. GOT7 Trash

    Somebody please give the link to Ray's "Another Day" song...there jus isn't any :OOOO

  37. Joey Blair

    This song is just pure breath taking. Raw lyrics are so rare these days and hard to come by.

  38. Raenetta Dulin

    SOUNDS LOVELY SIR !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  39. Doug Kilgore

    Reddington sent me here...

  40. jason bowman

    I felt this itch in my ear and I rubbed near the opening and it was semen. I has a damn eargasim in public listening to this song!

  41. maarten breunese

    does anyone know if i can find any tabs on the guitar solo.

  42. sriram rb

    Us and Them

  43. Leonardo Canales

    this is the song i was looking for

  44. Marie-Luce DENIS

    Magnifaïïïïïïque !!!!!!!!!

  45. Johnny NiteTrain

    I still remember discovering Ray Lamontagne, in 2004, Elton John was asked by Larry King about new artists he was into. He said "i'm into The Killers, and this guy Ray Lamontagne." That was the night i discovered Trouble... Man.... a few months later i saw him perform at Bonnaroo 2004 and it was a remarkable show. hell yeah

  46. Ronaldo Castro

    I spend the life trying to Kiss, to say I love you. I couldn't do anything because I was completely fall. I don't want be in love. It's just a mess, silly, but beautiful.

  47. FLASHSNAPS

    I like many of you first heard this on the TV series blacklist, I believe at the end of episode 16 of season three.  I actually stumbled onto the series on Netflix and immediately loved it.  Whoever scouts the music used in this series is amazing as this song and so many other great songs have been used it different episodes.  IT has turned me onto great new songs and wonderful artists I didn't even know existed.  Another series that has also turned me onto some great new music and artists is the TV series REIGN.  It is interesting that around the world as different as we are as far as customs, cultures, faiths, etc., at the same time we are quite the same.  In almost every culture in the globe good food, good music, dance, celebration, faith and family seems to be the glue that binds them all together.

  48. Ali

    I too got introduced to this song via The Blacklist. I hear "Don't Dream It's Over" by Crowded House. Can anyone else hear it?

  49. Tiernan Flaherty

    Buffalo Springfield's "Expecting to Fly", anyone? There's definitely shades of Pink Floyd too though. Beautiful song regardless.

  50. Alpine Sunshine

    In the verses I hear Buffalo Springfield - Expecting to Fly. Love the guitar tone.

  51. Ahmed Al-Saeed

    The blacklist brought me here ❤️

  52. Swisli

    Wow,cant stop listening...

  53. ALEX GONZALEZ

    awesome ray lomontagne bringing back some pink Floyd vibes

  54. michael linskey

    Cool song

  55. Spoon Fixer

    Beautiful song!

  56. Cindy Vinderwish6789 Vonderwish

    ray lamontauge omg what a sexy man and a beautiful voice

  57. steven wilkins

    on an island DG

  58. Shawn White

    This music should have more views.

  59. Susan Holland

    Thank God for Ray and his amazing music!

    Shaolin master

    reminds me of Pink Floyd

  60. Daniel D'Angelo

    If *Pink* *Floyd* never existed, you'd all just find another band to compare him to - lol. 🙃✌

    Christopher White

    Ok, but what's bad about saying that he sounds like Floyd on this? Comparisons do not necessarily detract from an artist's talent, they are just an acknowledgement that we detect an influence. Big deal; show me a song anywhere that hasn't been influenced by other bands.

    Brandy Collins

    I am so glad somebody said it. High five. He's making music in his own way. Can all of y'all just let him do that without commenting how it's this or it's that? Everybody needs to chill and just... Listen

  61. IMPERIAL

    some pink floyd stuff right therr; gonna smoke to this shiznit

    Sarah Ferrigan

    IMPERIAL THRASHER definitely do that :)

    Ashfaque Musa

    The rhythm is totally Floyd. :-)

    IMPERIAL

    ”And I'll climb the hill in my own way” ;)

    Davis Bowe

    Aren't you cool?

  62. Jose David Vargas

    I love the tone of the guitar at around 1:30 Just glorious

    Sarah Ferrigan

    Jose David Vargas God I love that distorted guitar. Spine tingling.

    Jose David Vargas

    Sarah Ferrigan right! had to immediately grab my guitar and transcribe that riff

  63. amine sadouk

    and it breaks my heart to see such videos with only 180k...what a painful world..

    Kemi

    amine sadouk good music isn't for everyone...some will never appreciate true art..

  64. Ken Reeves

    I cannot stop listening to this album...great lyrics, Pink Floydish sound...

    "All the plans
    That were made
    Let them die
    Let them fade
    I'll spend the day in my own way"

    "Birdsong, tugging on my slumber
    Opens my eyes.
    Slowly I am woken to find
    Your hand in mine."

    ...Gotta love it!!!

  65. Michael Blue Riband

    Song of the day 03-07-2016: was the world perfect just now, just a fleeting now and then off again? There is a learning needed now, to restrain from groping at the grapes and to lie, lie beneath the succulence.

    Michael Blue Riband

    Song of the day 31.05.2017/ At any given moment, I can't decide if my wealth, the entire cumulus of my sense of worth, is either like the bullion of a currency that no longer exists or the currency of a country not yet founded.

    Michael Blue Riband

    01.05.2018—na naa, none of that, not today. [again, again]

    Michael Blue Riband

    30/07/2019: i remember placing the cup on the ledge in front of the optical shop, listening to this song and knowing it's time i got going.

  66. Jannifer Stoddard

    Where can I find the lyrics?

    Ken Reeves

  67. Annette Holden

    Love this song, but it totally reminds me of Pink Floyd's "Us and Them".

    Stella Stokes

    It kind of reminds me of "Across The Universe" by The Beatles as well

  68. John Creach

    did Pink Floyd have a baby with Beck?

  69. Lola Silva-Martini

    Loving this new sound!!!

  70. amine sadouk

    Raymond Redington brought me here, thanks Red thanks a lot :)

  71. Otto Pärt

    Thank heavens, Ray is back to doing what he's great at. Beautiful work.

  72. LV Caster

  74. Aaron Bang

    Cannot wait to see this live!!! Ray LaMontagne and My Morning Jacket on the same bill? That's a gimme!!! Brilliant work on tho new album, especially Jim on the producer seat! Bravo!

  77. buggld

    So many dislikes, lol.

    Josh Thomas

    +buggld I CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF THIS SONG AND TEQUILA!!!

  78. Martin Davey

    Lots of Floyd references and I agree ...and also Neil Young and when the guitar kicks it a little some Wilco too....combined with Rays voice it's pretty close to a perfect tune for almost any mood you're in.

    LYRICS: Lock the door
    Draw the shades
    Close my eyes
    I'm miles away
    I'll spend the day in my own way

    Count the hours
    Mark the days
    Underneath it all
    The rise and swelling of the waves
    I'll spend the day in my own way

    All the plans
    That were made
    Let them die
    Let them fade
    I'll spend the day in my own way

    Please understand I'm only human

    After all's said and done
    Only here a moment
    Then the moment's gone
    I'll spend the day in my own way

    Please understand I'm only human
    At times I fail
    At times I fold
    Don't break your back trying to carry it
    Wait 'til the world can't please the moon

    Lock the door
    Draw the shades
    Close my eyes
    I'm miles away
    I'll spend the day in my own way

    I'll spend the day in my own way
    I'll spend the day in my own way

  80. squonkk

    I like it a lot!

  81. MarkOfTheNorth

    This song sounds like sitting on a boat on a calm lake, fly fishing on a hot summer day, with little bugs lazily buzzing around. Ahhhhh, Heaven!

    Daniel D'Angelo

    Would you pee in the water if you knew you'd get away with it? ☻

  82. Micaela

    swear I'm going to make mad love to this song.

  83. Felix French

    ваще заебись!

  84. ES295

    Glorious.  The only thing to dislike is that it is here for free.  Music this great should be supported so the artist can make more.

  85. Joseph Sharp

    Those guitar instrumentals are the only reason I get out of bed in the morning.

  86. sanfranman242001

    How can people dislike this? It's got an old soulful vibe, Ray is one of my biggest influences in writing music.

  87. Dirk Diggler

    Thank you SoundHound. The Blacklist has a pretty decent soundtrack.

  88. David Crown

    Simply Floydian.

  89. jeremiah parlette

    Sounds a bit like Us & Them pink Floyd.

  90. Brasspineapple Productions

    Its my Birthday Today... So This song was my choice of ABSOLUTE FAVORITE to listen to. I love it. Maybe some day I could meet Ray. He has such a Classic Rock feeling to it. Just awesome in every way. Sort of like Crosby Stills, Nash and Young kind of Vibe. ROCK ON DUDE !

  91. Jessica Amber

    I'll spend the day in my own way...fuckin right.

  92. Enrico Stecchi

    Ray's voice is beautiful , and sincere, authentic in his expression. Bravo Ray ! anyhow I appreciate a lot.

  93. Neo Smith
