A heart on the run
Keeps a hand on a gun
It can’t trust anyone
I was so sure
What I needed was more
Tried to shoot out the sun
In days when we raged
We flew off the page
Such damage was done
But I made it through
‘Cause somebody knew
I was meant for someone
Jason Isbell performs “Cover Me Up” (embedded video above or HERE for YouTube) at Austin City Limits. From album Southeastern.
(Isbell has just released a DVD of his entire ACL concert. It would make a great gift for any music lovers in your life. Available on Amazon HERE.)

I know you are appalled by a few of my “not favorite” artists that you love and I don’t…but rest assured, Jason Isbell has us firmly on the same page. Love this song and him. Thanks!
Haha! The only ones I knew of were the Avett Bros–you mean there are more?? 😉
I would seriously question the sanity of anyone who claimed to dislike Isbell. Be sure to watch him on the Americana awards too, airing on PBS this week.
i remember getting a big reaction to my dislike of david grey,
but maybe i’m wrong…
Hmmmm not sure, I’m fairly neutral on Grey…I don’t know his stuff well enough. But if I was battling insomnia, anything is possible, lol.
