“Let It Be Me”, Ray LaMontagne

Ray LaMontagne is a great addition to any playlist unless you’re throwing a super hip, hoppin’ kegger or something. If a sweet, mellow background playlist is what you’re looking for, go check out Ray LaMontagne and pick out a few of your faves. Your relatives are certain to hear the pretty melodies and the smooth, hypnotizing voice of his and ask you, “Who is this?” And if you have hipster cousins or siblings, they’ll give you a little nod in appreciation when he comes on.

"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 And 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 And 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 and you 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 Now, 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"
