The Stone

It's funny how you can listen to a song for a long time and never really catch what it's about...these lyrics got my attention today...cuz I feel like this a lot: I’ve this creeping, suspicion that things here are not as they seem. Reassure me, oh why do I feel as if I’m in too deep. Now I’ve been praying, for some way to show them I’m not what they see. Yes I have done wrong, but what I did I thought needed be done, I swear. Oh, unholy day, if I leave now I might get away. Oh but this weighs on me, as heavy as stone and as blue as I go. I was just wondering if you’d come along. Hold up my head when my head won’t hold on. I’ll do the same if the same’s what you want,If not I’ll go, I will go a long... ..long way, ah, from that fool’s mistake. Dave Matthews, "The Stone"

Dave's songs all have a message you just need to take the time to sit down, listen and interpret. Good thing to do if you are having a lazy and thoughtful day.

you've figured it out.

and why do people insist on calling him by his first name?

i only do that for people i KNOW.

1. I've no idea why we call him "dave" -- maybe he feels like a friend, or something like that... don't be bitter!

2. This song, as I understand it, is about being misunderstood -- about people misreading you and characterizing you by the one bad thing you did instead of by who you really are and it's about reaching out and asking someone to be around, hell or high water, but if they're not interested in supporting the real you, walking away.
