Gaucho
« on: September 08, 2013, 09:02:19 PM »
This song, Gaucho, is taken from Dave Matthews Band’s most recent album, “Away from the World". It is a beautiful song with deep and meaningful lyrics that I hope you all enjoy and think about.

And I was inspired to post it here thanks to Diane’s use of metaphorical imagery discussing people in their own secluded boxes from this post: http://culdiantrust.org/culdianforums/index.php?topic=143.msg1254#msg1254

That reminded me of the album cover from “Away from the World”, and onto this song. That image of the cover and the song are below (Lyrics for Gaucho are below both):












With fire to keep us warm
And tools we made from rocks and bones
A roof over your head
And walls to keep you safe in bed

There must be more than this
So god was born and we in his
Image of fear and love
Looked down upon from up above

We gotta do much more than believe if we really wanna change things
We gotta do much more than believe if we wanna see the world change

We crossed the oceans wide
Built cities to the sky (oh lord)
Looked up and we were flying
But will we not survive ourselves

We gotta do much more than believe if wanna see the world change
We gotta do much more than believe if we really wanna change things
We gotta do much more than believe, go on try it, go on try it
We gotta do much more than believe if we wanna see the world change

What will I say to baby?
Let me show you a movie
You know we landed a man on the moon?
Now you could never believe it
Yea we could do anything
We flew to the stars and back
Down to the ground hard

Please wake up
Please wake up
Please wake up

We gotta do much more than believe if we really wanna change things
We gotta do much more than believe, go on try it, go on try it
We gotta do much more than believe if we really wanna change things
We gotta do much more than believe, go on try it, go on try it
We gotta do much more than believe if we wanna see the world change

Oh, my little baby
I'll show you this movie
You know we landed a man on the moon?

I know it's hard to imagine
But we could do anything
Under the stars
