Dave Matthews Band: #41

Updated on May 16, 2014

(#41 was written by Dave Matthews)

Come and see

I swear by now I'm playing time against my troubles

Oh, I'm coming slow but speeding

Do you wish for a dance and while

I'm in the front

The play on time is won

Oh, but the difficulty's coming here

I will go in this way

Oh, and find my own way out

I won't tell you what to be

But I'm coming to much more


All at once the ghosts come back

Reeling in you now

What if they came down crushing

It used to be that you and me

play for all of the loneliness that nobody notices now

I'm begging slow I'm coming here

Complete Lyrics can be found at the Dave Matthews Band Website

      This is one of my favorite songs of all time. I love the album version but nothing beats an excellent live version though. Great post, sometimes it's nice to just read the lyrics as a poem too.
