i’m on a long downward spiral

friends help when they can

one called me on friday

do you want to go hear the dave matthews band?

i have two tickets, a friend gave them to me….

yes, I say, yes.

so I met her in arlington

and off we went

a beautiful night

hot, balmy, and calm

the pavilion was crowded

with tailgates and laughter

somewhere a wedding took place

dave and the band played their hearts out

enough that i escaped my sorrow

just for a while, just for a while

couples caressed in the darkness

laughing, smiling, enjoying the beat

thanks to dave and the band

watching the crowd and their joy

a glimpse of my young lover and I came to mind

sweet and fine, sweet and fine

No.41 lyrics

Come and see
I swear by now I’m playing time
against my troubles oh
I’m coming slow but speeding
Do you wish a dance and while I’m
in the front
the play on time is won
oh but the difficulty is coming here

I will go in this way
And find my own way out
I wont tell you to stay
But Its coming to much more
All at once the ghosts come back
Reeling in you now
What if they came down crushing
Remember when I used to play for
all of the loneliness that nobody notices now
Oh begging slow I’m coming here

Only waiting
I wanted to stay
I wanted to play
I wanted to love you

I’m only this far
And only tomorrow
the road leads the way

I’m coming waltzing back and moving into your head
Please, I wouldn’t pass this by
oh I would take any more than
What sort of man goes by
I will bring water
Why wont you ever be glad
It melts into wonder
I came in praying for you
why wont you run in the rain and play
let the tears splash all over you
