Fave Dave

There are certain songs that have a profound effect of me. They make me stop what I am doing so I can feel the song throughout my being, invoking a comatose-like state, stirring up my emotions. This is one such song. It is absolutely, hands-down, my favorite Dave Matthews Band song and in my Top Five Favorite Songs Ever. I would even go as far to say that this song changed my life. I can remember exactly where I was the first time I heard it and everything that was going on in my life at that time. I hadn’t listened to it in over a year, when it popped up on my shuffle, forcing me to stop what I was doing, focus, and just be in the moment. Can’t say it was an unwelcome feeling. Song and lyrics are below.

Happy Friday!

Spoon in spoon
Stirring my coffee
I thought of you
And turned to the gate
And on my way, came up with the answers
I scratched my head and the answers were gone

From hand to hand
Wrist to the elbow
Red blood sand
Could Dad be God?
Crosses cross, hung out like a wet rag
Forgive you, why?
You hung me out to dry

Maybe I’m crazy
But laughing out loud make the pain pass by
Maybe you’re a little crazy
But laughing out loud make it all subside
Holding, I’m holding
I’m still falling
I’m still falling

Spoon in spoon
Stirring my coffee
I thought of this
And turned to the gate
But on my way
Crack! Lightning, then thunder
I hid my head
And the storm slipped away

Well, maybe I’m crazy
But laughing out loud make it all pass by
Maybe you’re a little crazy
But laughing out loud make it all alright

Laughing out loud

From time to time
Minutes and hours
Some move ahead while
Some lag behind
It’s like the balloon that rise and then vanish
This drop of hope that falls from his eyes

Spoon in spoon
Sirring my coffee
I think of this
And turn to go away
Well as I walk
There’re voices behind me
Sinners sin
Come now and play

Laughing out loud

Come now and play

  1. Love it.
    Actually, it's funny. Everytime I hear this song, it makes me think of you and all the crazy times, travels, highs and lows we've shared over the years. One of those that will be forever yours…along with Peter G's “In your eyes” and Oasis's “Wonderwall”. I think perhaps you should have your own list on my i-pod.

  2. “Always Be My Baby”…”Video Killed the Radio Star”…there are many I associate with you as well. I think it's because I made you listen to those songs on repeat when you were with me!
