My 100 Favorite Songs: #2

Ray LaMontagne - Empty

As deliciously haunting as this song is musically, it's even better lyrically. Among its best lines:

I never learned to count my blessings,
I choose instead to dwell in my disasters

Well I looked my demons in the eyes,
laid bare my chest, said, Do your best, destroy me.
You see, I've been to hell and back so many times,
I must admit you kind of bore me

Its the hurt I hide that fuels the fire inside me

I had never heard this song before - thanks for sharing. Excellent lyrics, as you stated. Excited for number 1.

So I thought I knew what the last 2 were. One is a no brainer, but I thought two would be Freebird.
