A little birdie recently pointed out that the band Ron Freeman & The Revelatorshas a song called... (drum roll) "Lucy Hale"! Weird, right? Is it about the gorgeous young Pretty Little Liars actress? Listen and see what you think..
While it would be very flattering for Lucy (though also kind of creepy) if this were written for her, it turns out it's actually about another famous Lucy Hale: the fiancee of Lincoln's assassin, John Wilkes Booth. Giving the lyrics a closer look, that kind of makes sense. But hey, someone should write a song about our Lucy Hale. (We're guessing her rocker BF might be the one for the job...)
Hold my useless hands Close to your chest Pictures you might find In the pockets of my vest Please don’t get upset Please don’t get upset They are all actresses compared to you
Always to tyrants we’ll sing As the song of Maryland rings The despot’s heel is on the shore And he holds his torch at the temple door We’ll light the streets of Baltimore
I love you, Lucy Hale (x3) Do you love me too?
The sound of a drive-in film Comes through on the AM dial The engine burns in your driveway And we listen for a while Please don’t get upset Please don’t get upset
We’ll burst these tyrant chains As your sister watches from the window pane Your mother’s standing at the door And your father’s boots pace the floor We’ll light the streets of Baltimore
I can see you on the grass, watching all the cars pass From a folding chair outside, with a blanket overtop your thighs On just another Thursday night The campfire’s burning… The sweetest words I ever wrote We’re written on the back of an envelope You’re reading by the firelight Everyone else is getting high Tomorrow all the schools are closed No one tells us where to go You’re reading by the firelight Everyone else is getting high
