Song of the Day #4,143: ‘You Got Me’ – Ashley Monroe

Ashley Monroe, one third of the Pistol Annies, has had a very rich career since her debut album, 2009’s Satisfied. Since then she has released three more solo studio albums along with a live album, in addition to the three Pistol Annies records.

She has recorded music with Blake Shelton, Jack White, and Train, among others, and written or co-written songs for a number of fellow country artists. No doubt, she’s stayed busy.

I’m a fan of two of Monroe’s solo albums, Like a Rose and The Blade. The other two made less of an impression. But any friend of Miranda Lambert’s is a friend of mine.

[Verse 1]
I lay down to sleep at night until the craving for you wakes me up
I reach out to grab you, gotta have you, yell until I had enough
And you got me now, yea yea
And you got me now

[Verse 2]
We can lock the world outside, close my eyes, give in and then we’ll fly
You’re a secret that I’m gonna try to keep until the day I die
And you got me now, aah aah
And you got me now

[Chorus]
You always want me, you run straight for me
Down the mountain like a raging fire
And the storm is comin’, I can hear the warning
I know you’re a lie
But you got me now, yea
Oh oh, you got me now

[Verse 3]
I’m gettin’ good at lettin’ these excuses roll so easy off my tongue
And you’re gettin’ good at makin’ me feel nothin’ while I’m hurting everyone
But you got me now, yea yea
You got me now

[Chorus]

[Outro]
I lay down to sleep at night until the craving for you wakes me up

    Lest you think I fell down on my solemn duty to comment daily, I did make a comment yesterday, but it looks like it didn’t post. Can’t recall exactly what I said, but it was something about looking forward to seeing Elvis Costello. Thanks for accompanying me last night. As always, EC puts on a great show!
