Seek Up
Dave Matthews Band Lyrics


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
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

Sit awhile 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 your 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 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

Say, say
Look at me in 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,...stay the same

Forget about the reasons and
The treasons we are seeking
Forget about the notion that
Your 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 our 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
Fall back again, fall back again, fall back again...

Starting wail 11:59
[11:59] We live,
[12:03] part,
[12:04] and go on,
[12:06] We don't give enough.
[12:10] But where?
[12:11] Don't leave behind your soul,
[12:16] Oh,
[12:18] The end left us behind.
<wail>
[12:23] Oh lover,
[12:25] Don't leave me, don't leave me alone here
[12:36] Lonely life,
[12:38] Oh lonely life,
[12:39] Don’t leave me,
[12:41] Don’t leave me <wail>
[12:46] One day,
[12:48] Only,
[12:49] Lover,
[12:51] Departed,
[12:54] You are departed.
[12:56] You are departed from here,
[13:00] Oh
[13:01] Oh love’s wonderful,
[13:07] True love’s more,
[13:07] True lover of years old,
[13:10] <wail>
[13:11] <wail>
[13:13] So alone,
[13:15] Alone with this pain,
[13:19] And when I caught you there,
[13:23] You swore that you were innocent.
[13:27] Well, how’s that so,
[13:30] When you stole all you could from me,
[13:34] And when your last breath was breathed,
[13:38] You walked to another place,
[13:40] To end together life was strange.



Richard L Ames

Here's what Dave's saying from 12:00 through 13:45 ...
so alone
oh, love in this pain
and when I caught you there
you swore that you were innocent
without a soul
when you stole all you could from me
and when your last breath was breathed
you walked to another place
To end together life was small

None of my channels are monetized. if there are Ads they've been placed by the artist, their label/publishers, etc. To avoid ads on YouTube find a free Adblocker for your browser/device or consider subscribing to YouTube Premium which eliminates all advertisements on YouTube videos. Some say if you put the video at the end and then click replay the reply won't have an Ad. I pay for premium so have never tested that. Sorry if there are ads, but they're beyond my control.

@Mc76 no this is from 2001

Mc76

Is this the Red rocks 95 version? Thanks.

sean

Thanks but it doesnt seem to work for me, I tried fast forwarding till the end and clicking replay but I still got an ad in the middle, probably depends on the device/version I use =(

Mike Fantasia

Dragging to the end, letting it finish and hitting replay does eliminate ads. Ads are for the first viewing only so by playing the end and then restarting it tricks it into thinking it's a replay

They need to put this song on a satellite and broadcast it to other stars. That way, aliens can get a taste of the pinnacle of our culture.
