Oh, Ray.

Do you ever feel so moved by a song that you can’t seem to get it out of your head? When Mumford and Sons first put out the album “Sigh No More” I had the song “Little Lion Man” in my head for a solid month. Every moment my brain wasn’t occupied with some productive venture, that energetic, passionate chorus rang in my ears.

Well, it’s been about two weeks since I first got Ray LaMontagne’s song “Beg Steal or Borrow” stuck in my head, and it just won’t let up. I don’t entirely mind because I truly love the song. For some reason, the lyrics really resonate with me.

Listen for yourself:

But I am warning you, you might just get lost in the song and not be able to escape for quite some time!

 

 

So your home town's bringing you down
Are you drowing in the small talk
and the chatter

Or you gonna step into line like your daddy done
Punching the time and climbing lifes long letter

You've been howing at the moon like a slack jaw fool
And breaking every rule they can throw on
But one of these days it's gonna be right soon
You'll find your legs and go and stay gone

Young man full of big plans and thinking about tomorrow
Young man going to make a stand
You beg, steal you borrow
You beg you steal you borrow

Well all the friends that you knew in school
They used to be so cool and they just bore you

Well look at them now, already pulling the plow
So quick to take to grain and some moarn you

Young man full of big plans and thinking about tomorrow
Young man going to make a stand
You beg steal you borrow
You beg you steal you borrow

Dreaming of the day
You're gonna pack your bags
Put the miles away
Oh, just grab your girl and go
Where no one knows you
What will all the old folks say?

So the home town's bringing you down
Are you drowning in the small talk and the chatter?
Or you gonna step into line like your daddy done
Punching the time and driving lifes long letter

Young man full of big plans and thinking about tomorrow
Young man going to make a stand
You beg, steal you borrow
You beg you steal you borrow
