New (Old) Lyrics – I Hope It’s Me

At the show the other night, I asked if anyone had any requests, and my friend, Nicolette, suggested, “I Hope It’s Me.”

I teased her that it must be another guy… Cause I didn’t have a song like that…. But I did… I guess back in 2008 or 2011, I posted this on MySpace and gave it away as a download or something…. Anyways, here it is. Thanks Nicolette!

I Hope It’s Me

Written by Josh Damigo

Who do you call when trouble comes
and you find yourself in need?
I hope it’s me.

Who makes you laugh likes no one else
And won’t stop until you pee?
I hope it’s me.

I’m sure a lot of guys
Have had their eyes on you
They would do anything
To lie down next to you

Who do you think of
When you start to fall asleep?
I hope it’s me
I hope it’s me
I hope it’s me

Who comes in your nightmares
To fight of monsters in your dreams?
I hope it’s me

Who do you call when you need a break
Just someone to hear you scream?
I hope it’s me

I’m sure a lot of guys
Have had their eyes on you
They would say anything
To lie down next to you

Who do you think of
when your alarm clock starts to ring
I hope it’s me
I hope it’s me
I hope it’s me

Whenever you want someone
to hold you while you sleep
I hope it’s me
I hope it’s me
I hope it’s me

About Josh Damigo

Josh will cheerfully admit that he averaged less than a dozen people a show when he first began playing San Diego coffee houses. But he garnered diehard fans in the process, sold a few thousand copies of his homemade EP, Pocket Change, and picked up few awards along the way. After a traumatic family incident, Damigo retreated inward, and he ended up writing what would ultimately become his breakout debut, Raw. The album was true to its name and people noticed - Josh picked up two San Diego Music Awards for “Best Acoustic” and “Best Local Recording,” opened for the likes of Zac Brown, Jason Mraz, Eric Hutchinson, and Matt Nathanson, and had enough money and momentum to tour the country a few times over. A few years after Raw, there was his third release, Hope. Whereas Raw was a mostly acoustic, vulnerable affair, Hope was a celebration. Pleading and poignant, heartfelt and heavy hearted, it segued effortlessly from orchestral to alt-country, eventually landing him in the top 25 on the country charts. One of the hardest working indie singer/songwriters in Southern California, Damigo spent much of year with producer Mike Butler, gathering up some of the finest musicians in town, shaping his songs and sound further still for his latest album, "Just Give Me a Call", available now, on Randm Records. From the up-tempo single, “Just Give Me a Call”, to the simple sincerity of the ballad “Tennessee”, Josh’s songwriting skills are clear, his voice rings true and his goals remain the same as when he started - to keep making the best music he can, and to share it with all.
