Lyrically Speaking for June 8th

This week I wanted to change it up a little and go with a song that is much more mellow but still powerful in the words being sung. If you like any music by the Dave Matthews Band, you know that their songs can range from fun hits on the radio but you might not know that they have an array of songs that can really touch you and carry a powerful message.

In the song Say Goodbye, you can see what pain Dave Matthews or whoever wrote the song went through immense heartache and has an extreme desire for a particular woman. I think that most people can relate to the words being sung and even know the pain of wanting someone we can’t have. I believe that the music for this song are as important as the lyrics and I highly suggest you give it a listen. The lyrics alone don’t do this song justice.

From the amazing album Crash, this is Say Goodbye:

So here we are tonight
You and me together
The storm outside, the fire is bright
And in your eyes I see
What’s on my mind
You’ve got me wild
Turned around inside
And then desire, see, is creeping
Up heavy inside here
And know you feel the same way
I do now
Now let’s make this an evening
Lovers for a night, lovers for tonight
Stay here with me, love, tonight
Just for an evening
When we make
Our passion pictures
You and me twist up
Secret creatures
And we’ll stay here
Tomorrow go back to being friends

Go back to being friends
But tonight let’s be lovers,
We kiss and sweat
We’ll turn this better thing
To the best
Of all we can offer, Just a rogue kiss
Tangled tongues and lips,
See me this way
I’m turning and turning for you
Girl just tonight

Float away here with me
An evening just wait and see
But tomorrow go back to your man
I’m back to my world
And we’re back to being friends
Wait and see me,
Tonight let’s do this thing
All we are is wasting hours until the sun comes up it’s all ours
On our way here
Tomorrow go back to being friends

Go back to being friends
Tonight let’s be lovers, say you will
And hear me call, soft-spoken whispering love
A thing or two I have to say here
Tonight let’s go all the way then
Love I’ll see you,
Just for this evening
Let’s strip down, trip out at this
One evening starts with a kiss
Run away

And tomorrow
back to being friends
Just for tonight, one night…love you
And tomorrow say goodbye
