The Best Of What's Around
by Dave Matthews Band

Hey, my friend
It seems your eyes are troubled
Care to share your time with me
Would you say you're feeling low and so
A good idea would be to get it off of your mind

See, you and me
Have a better time than most can dream
Have it better than the best
And so can pull on through
Whatever tears at us
Whatever holds us down
And if nothing can be done
We'll make the best of what's around

Turns out not where but who you're with
That really matters
That really matters
And hurts not much when you're around
When you're around

And if you hold on tight
To what you think is your thing
You may find you're missing all the rest
She ran up into the light surprised
Her arms are open
Her mind's eye is...

Seeing things from a
Better side than most can dream
On a better road I feel
So you could say she's safe
Whatever tears at her
Whatever holds her down
And if nothing can be done
She'll make the best of what's around

Turns out not where but what you think
That really matters
That really matters
That really matters
And hurts not much when you're around

When ever I feel down or inadequate. This is one of the songs that makes me feel so happy and positive. I hope you enjoy it as well.

Famous West

Andrew Ellmaker no problem buddy we're with you 💌

Stephanie Richardson

As much as I swear #41 is my favorite, the truth is, this is probably the one.

Steven Hiott

I sing along to this song forever

Hey my friend
It seems your eyes are troubled
Care to share your time with me
Would you say you're feeling low and so
A good idea would be to get it off your mind
See you and me
Have a better time than most can dream
Have it better than the best
So we can pull on through
Whatever tears at us
Whatever holds us down
And if nothing can be done
We'll make the best of what's around
Turns out not where but who you're with
That really matters
And hurts not much when you're around
And if you hold on tight
To what you think is your thing
You may find you're missing all the rest
Well she ran up into the light surprised
Her arms are open
Her mind's eye is
Seeing things from a
Better side than most can dream
On a clearer road I feel
Oh you could say she's safe
Whatever tears at her
Whatever holds her down
And if nothing can be done
She'll make the best of what's around
Turns out not where but what you think
That really matters
We'll make the best of what's around

I was a freshman in college in 94..my God time flies by, I had this album playing on repeat, the sound was so fresh and new, I immediately fell in love

Adam Wade

Still my favorite Dave Matthew's song. #42 is awesome too.

Hannah Cornell

Always loved the ending of this song. Reminds me of Hey Jude in a way 💜

Do Better Please

This might be the only song I like the studio version of better! It's just something about it!

Justin Paul
