Song of the Week...

Ray Lamontagne's Burn. Lyrically, the best written song on Lamontagne's amazing debut. Hannah, the 7th track recorded with Sara Watkins of Nickel Creek, is the best song on the album and shows flashes of what we can expect in future efforts from Ray. But, for now, the lyrics of the song of the week:

Oh mama don't walk away, I'm a goddam sore loser I ain't too proud to stay
But I'm still thinking 'bout you And I'm so lonesome without you And I can't get you out of my mind
Oh mama don't leave me alone with my soul sat down so tight it's like a cold tomb
Its clear when I'm near you, I'm just dying to hear you calling my name one more time
Oh so dont pay no mind to my watering eyes, must be something in the air Im breathing
Yes I try to ignore all this blood on the floor
It's just this heart on my sleeve that's a bleeding
Oh mama don't walk away
You leave me here bereaving from the words so hard and plain
Saying the love that we had was just selfish and sad
To see you now with him is just making me mad
Oh so kiss him again just to prove to me that you can
and I will stand here and burn in my skin
Yes I will stand here and burn in my skin
