You helped me get into a lot more Dave than I ever would have had it been all through commercial radio. And, since I was listening to the music with an ear specifically towards the lyrics, I can now understand the love Dave's fans have for him. He writes gorgeous songs about the complications from this crazy ride called life and what we want from it.
I keep finding the same answer, over and over, in quite nearly every song. LOVE. We all want/need/desire love in all it's infinite glory. With love, hand in hand, there is always pain. I guess cliches don't happen without a reason. What's goes up, must come down. Into each life a little rain must fall. Dave has figured out how to put all his emotion out there for the world to hear, and it's not via rhymes. It's raw, from the gut, emotional truths he has lived or witnessed.
Has anyone else felt this way? Have you too discovered we really all just want the exact same thing? Did any of these songs really bring it home for you? Do share.
Enjoy this Saturday.
And find my own way out
I won't tell you to stay
But I'm coming to much more
