Waylon’s first album after the Common Linnets breakup has proven to be a big success. The album topped the charts in the Netherlands and we wiwibloggers loved his first single, “Love drunk.” So you can imagine the excitement when he recently launched his newest single, “Love me.” It’s a command, but one we are happy to obey…

There may not be an official video out yet, but no bother: just close your eyes and listen. Even if you’re a bigger fan of his previous single “Love drunk”—count me among them—you have to admit that Waylon knows how to give us quality and emotion. He’s not just a pop star, but an artist.

Interesting fact: This song is co-written by Ilse deLange and JB Meijers, the writer of their Eurovision song ‘Calm after the storm‘.

Rating: 4/5

Love Me Lyrics – Waylon

I walk the road you’re on
Put my self in you’re shoes
Would that be good for you

If I say the things you say
Never question you
Would that be good for you

I never grow up
Only you to turn to
Would that be good for you

If I make it to your love
My hopes are you’re dreams
Would that be good for you

I’m not you
You’re not me
I’m a different kind of sailor
On a different kind of sea

So let me rise
Let me fall
I know you learned the hard way
And still don’t know it all

So pray for love
Pray for love (mmh)
Love me

As blessed to get involve
Like a son turns to his father
Can I still turn to you

As our baby’s sleeps their mother
There will never be another
Can I still turn to you

And above all my brothers and sisters
I’m the one who will miss ‘m
Can I still turn to you

And I find comfort in the rain
You don’t have to be the same
Can I still turn to you

I’m not you
You’re not me
I’m a different kind of sailor
On a different kind of sea

So let me rise
Let me fall
I know you learned the hard way
And still don’t know it all

So every chain had to break
Every chance I had to take
All the wisdom I prepared
All the times that I have failed
Every heartache that I make
All the nights I was away
Knows the ways where to me come
Was there to catch me when I fall

All the prairs that I pray
Every breakup I ever laid
Every fire that I led
And all the damage that I did
And every song I ever song
Every war I never won
Every lover that I loved
Was it ever good enough
Ever good enough

I’m not you
You’re not me
I’m a different kind of sailor
On a different kind of sea

Let me rise
Let me fall
I know you’ve learned the hard way
And still don’t know it all

So pray for love
Pray for love (mmh)
Love
Love me

I pray for love
I pray for love
Love
Love me

well actualy the first single flopped in Netherlands and the album dropped quite quickly after topping the chart in the debut week. Waylon would have been a great choice for Eurovision. He is handsome, talented and his music is really good. I love “Lovedrunk”. A shame his album is not available on UK Spotify

And this was one half of the duo, whose song at the very beginning nobody, almost nobody cared about, liked or appreciated but ended up reaching #2 in the finals and top ten in the UK .. unlike Conchita! I have a hard time understanding how come people needed to “see” something in order to start enjoying and now acknowledging how talented this guy is and how talented Ilse also is. Two ears was all we needed to fully appreciate a remarkable song that meant a lot more than any damn rising anti-russian phoenix … instead we are too damn… Read more »
