Music Monday! Dave Matthews Band – Seek Up

Given that today all Dave Matthews Band Warehouse members get the good or awful news on their ticket confirmations for the upcoming summer tour I thought I would share one of my favorite songs.  This is one of the best visions of Seek Up that I ever heard. Hopefully, one day I’ll catch a DMB show as SPAC. Enjoy!

Sometimes, I feel like I’m falling
Fall back again
Fall back again
Fall back again
Fall back again

Oh, life, it seems a struggle between what we think, what we see
I’m not going to change my ways just to please you or appease you
Inside a crowd, five billion proud, willing to punch it out
Right, wrong, weak, strong, ashes to ashes, all fall down
I look around about this round about this merry-go-round around
If at all God’s gaze upon us fall, his mischievous grin, look at him

Forget about the reasons and the treasons we are seeking
Forget about the notion that our emotions can be swept away
Forget about being guilty, we are innocent instead
For soon we will all find our lives swept away

Oh, sit a while with TV’s hungry child, big belly swelled
Oh, for a price of a Coke or a smoke, keep alive those hungry eyes
Take a look at me, what you see in me, mirror look at me
Face it all, face it all again

Forget about the reasons and the treasons we are seeking
Forget about the notion that our emotions can be swept away, kept at bay
Forget about being guilty, I am innocent instead
For soon we will all find our lives swept away

You seek up an emotion and our cup is overflowing
You see up an emotion, sometimes your well is dry
You seek up a big monster for him to fight your wars for you
But when he find his way to you, the devil’s not going
Ha, ha
Ha, ha

Say
Oh, say

Look at me and my fancy car and my bank account
Oh, how I wish I could take it all down into my grave, I’d save
Take a look again, take a look again, take a look again
Everyday things change, basically they stay the same

Forget about the reasons and the treasons we are seeking
Forget about the notion that our emotions can be swept away
Intentions are not wicked, don’t be tricked into thinking so
Soon we will all find our lives swept away

You seek up an emotion and your cup is overflowing
You seek up an emotion, sometimes your well is dry
You seek up a big monster for him to fight your wars for you
But when he finds his way to you, the devil’s not going
Ha, ha
Ha, ha

Fall back again
Fall back again
Fall back again
Fall back again
Fall back again
Fall back again
Fall back again
Fall back again

  1. Ah Dave Matthews! I was front row at one of his concerts and he threw me a drumstick. Truly one of the highlights of my life!

      I have so many fond memories tied to DMB. Getting to walk the stage prior to the show in Hartford a few years back is definitely one of mine!
