Dave Matthews Band - Dive In Lyrics




I saw a man on the side of the road
with a sign that read 'will work for food'
Tried to look busy, 'til the light turned green

I saw a bear on TV and his friends were all drowning
cause their homes were turning to water

A strange, kinda sad, big old bear
surely would happily eat me
he'd tear me to pieces that bear

Wake up sleepy head
I think the suns a little brighter today
Smile and watch the icicles melt away and see the water rising...
Summers here to stay, and all those summer games will last forever
Go down to the shore, kick off your shoes, dive in the empty ocean.

Tell me everything will be OK if I just stay on my knees and keep praying
believing in something
Tell me everything is all taken care of by those qualified to take care of it all.

Wake up sleepy head
I think the suns a little brighter today
Smile and watch the icicles melt away and see the waters rising
Summers here to stay, and that sweet summer breeze will blow forever
Go down to the shore, kick off your shoes, dive in the empty ocean

One day, do you think we'll wake up in a world on it's way to getting better?
and if so can you tell me how?

I have been thinking that lately the blood is increasing
the tourniquets not keeping hold in spite of our twisting
though we would like to believe we are
we are not in control
though we would love to believe

Wake up sleepy head
I think the suns a little brighter today
Smile and watch the icicles melt away and see the water rising...
Summers here to stay, and those sweet summer girls will dance forever
Go down to the shore, kick off your shoes, dive in the empty ocean.

    DMB took on a great responsibility of telling us about global climate change. Let's share that responsibility of taking care of our planet. Earth is the last frontier.

  24. Stephen Decker

    @thecarboon

    He's watching "Sex and the City"... lolol

    No, it's probably the lyrics... he sings harmony sometimes.

  25. Christopher Gilmore

    man this stuff is just...hypnotizing...i love it

  26. myriamb8

    Outstanding song, thanks for posting.

  27. bocicciale

    In Italy Dave does it better :-)

  28. Zach Wendt

    @thecarboon He is singing harmony in this song, I bet its the lyrics scrolling for him. It is quite difficult to play drums and sing, especially with all of the stuff that he does.

  29. paul seeley

    @thecarboon lyrics. tells him when to sing

  30. Marius Myhre

  31. morlatheancient1

    This song and "Lying in the hands of god" are 2 of the most beautiful songs. Brilliant album.
