One Sweet World
Dave Matthews Band Lyrics

Nine planets round the sun
Only one does the sun embrace
Upon this watered one
So much to we take for granted

So let us sleep outside tonight
Lay down in the mother's arms
For here we can rest safely

If green should slip to grey
Would our hearts still bloody beat
If the mountains crumble away
And the river dry
Would it stop the stepping feet

Take all that we can get
When it's done
Nobody left to bury
Nobody left to dig the holes
And here we will rest safely

One sweet world
Around this star is spinning
One sweet world
In her breath I'm swimming
And here we will rest in peace.

I’ve been following Dave since 2002. Been to over 50 shows.

From my perspective, Dave has never sounded better than now, specifically in these home clips. In concert on tour, his voice has been pretty rough but his voice is incredible in these ‘home’ videos.

Its not only his voice, but his guitar work is the best it’s ever been! His touch on those strings, his dynamics.. it’s literally perfect.

I also find it interesting he mentions missing Roi’s voice on this particular song. The community loves Coffin, but basically everyone agrees that Coffin overplays the sax on this song, especially on the intro. Dave misses Roi’s soul and thoughtfulness on this one, as do his fans.

That’s all. Thanks for reading if anyone even did! 😝

The instrumental intro is possibly the most beautiful riff Dave has ever written

This song always makes Boyd Tinsley think of sweaty stinky socks 🧦🧦🧦🧦


If I tried to play that intro, I’d be scheduling carpal tunnel surgery the next day. Holy shit, that is so effortless. Dave is the king


Can confirm, been trying to play it at the same tempo Dave does for a couple of months now.

I learned it yesterday from this vid and it was def a workout for the pinky and index 😂
