Monday’s Song: Dave Matthews Band, “The Best of What’s Around”

 

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.
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.
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.

Hey life, hold on.

      Agreed. It’s not the most musically interesting (or really even the most lyrically interesting) DMB song, but it just makes me feel so good!!!
