Ivy Levan – I Don’t Wanna Wake U

When she was 16-years-old, Ivy Levan hotfooted it out of her Arkansas hometown and moved to Los Angeles to launch the singing career she’d long coveted. “I didn’t have any real plan,” recalls Levan, now 26. “I just knew I needed to get out of there as fast as I could, so two weeks before I was supposed to graduate high school, I took off for L.A. with my mama.” After a few false starts—including a stint at a major label that tried to refashion the fabulously brash singer-songwriter as a Celine Dion-esque balladeer—and a foray into acting and modeling to make ends meet, Levan breathed new fire into her musical pursuits by returning to her Southern heritage. From Benjamin Weinman of The Dillinger Escape Plan to world renown DJ, Diplo, Ivy’s blossoming talent has been recognized by some of the most respected players in the music community. Now, with her debut EP Introducing the Dame on Cherrytree Records, Levan serves up a brand of blues-infused pop that boldly flaunts both her larger-than-life voice and gritty-yet-glossy, in-your-face energy.

With a sound that Levan alternately dubs “swamp hop” and “punk-rock Motown,” Introducing the Dame is a four-track powerhouse built on fiery-sweet melodies, bright but dirty beats, and Levan’s endlessly smoldering vocals. Made in collaboration with her writing partners in the L.A.-based Blood Money Inc. and featuring guest musicians like Tomo Miličević of 30 Seconds to Mars, the EP also reveals Levan’s brilliantly roughneck wit as a pop lyricist. Whether delivering an ode to the almighty dollar (“Money”), a harmony-kissed hangover anthem (“I Don’t Wanna Wake Up”), a heart-on-sleeve serenade (“Hang Forever”), or a growling come-on that name-drops the Son of Sam (“Hot Damn”), Introducing the Dame keeps it high-powered and passionate but never skimps on good, filthy fun.

Ivy Levan – I Don’t Wanna Wake U Lyrics:
Drank to much last night
Bottles everywhere
Woke up in my shoes
Whats a girl to do?
Well Im hurting like mother baby please
I dont wanna wake up
No not today
I know I fucked up
I got hell to pay
I dont wanna wake up
No not today
I told you once, I told you twice now let me sleep the blues away
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Drank too much last night
Got whisky in my hair
There is a grizzly in my bed
a pounding in my head
and its raising like a locomotive no
i dont wanna wake up
no not today
I know I fucked up
I got hell to pay
I dont wanna wake up
I told you once, I told you twice now let me sleep the blues away
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Hey ladies
I need to break this thing down for just one second
you ever had one of those long long crazy nights
and you swear youd never do it again
but you know that shit aint true
I dont wanna wake up
No not today
I know I fucked up
I got hell to pay.
I dont wanna wake up.
No not today.
I told you once, I told you twice now let me sleep the blues away.
no not today.
i know i fucked up.
i got hell to pay.
I dont wanna wake up.
no not today.
I told you once, I told you twice now let me sleep the blues away.
