Oh Lyrics
Dave Matthews

The world is blowing up
The world is caving in
The world has lost her way again
But you are here with me
But you are here with me
Makes it ok

I hear you still talk to me
As if you're sitting in that dusty chair
Makes the hours easier to bear
I know despite the years alone
I'll always listen to you sing your sweet song
And if it's all the same to you

I love you oh so well
Like a kid loves candy and fresh snow
I love you oh so well
Enough to fill up heaven, overflow, and fill hell
Love you oh so well

And it's cold and darkness falls
It's as if you're in the next room so alive
I could swear I hear you singing to me

I love you oh so well
Like a kid loves candy and fresh snow
I love you oh so well
Enough to fill up heaven, overflow, and fill hell

The world is blowing up
The world is caving in
The world has lost her way again
But you are here with me
But you are here with me
Makes it ok

Oh girl you're singing to me still
I love you oh so well
Like a kid loves candy and fresh snow
I love you oh so well
Enough to fill up heaven overflow and fill hell

I've grown quite attached to this song. I've known it for a long time, but since my grandfather passed two years ago, it's brought on new meaning. It is almost as if we had the same grandfathers, the lyrics are quite accurate in my situation. Love me some dave, that's for sure.



love in the world | Reviewer: Dan | 3/10/11

For a man looking for his place in the world, this song brings me so much happiness, in that strange, melancholy way that music can. Dave is an incredible artist, bringing together the deepest feelings of us all so that we can all learn what it means to be human and to be alive and to live and love. I can't wait to see him next!



Oh | Reviewer: Steve | 3/9/10

When I first heard this song the image I got was that the singer is an old man reminiscing about his wife who has long since passed away. Despite living alone in a world gone mad, he can still hear her "in the next room so alive" singing "your sweet song" and that makes it all bearable. The beauty of falling in love can keep the heart young and alive 30, 40, 50 years later...



Amazing | Reviewer: Epsilon | 10/21/09

Even though this may have been written about his grandfather, my first though was that he wrote it about his sister. However, that detail isn't important to the song. The song inspires me today, and makes love seem all the more prevalent in the modern world.



the amazing lyrics again | Reviewer: Herold | 1/6/09

this song is beyond comparison to most other artists. He uses the song to tell about his grandfather however anyone can relate this to their significant other. Its perfect to show fresh young love. One may also relate if he or she has lost the person they love for a certain time and they then return upon notice. Its an amazing romantic lyrical song again by the great



oh girl | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/16/08

The beauty of art is in its ability for everyone to view it differently. Dave may have written it about his grandfather, but someone somewhere else can listen to it and relate to it differently. It's a beautiful song.



OH | Reviewer: Scott | 10/5/07

This song is apparently about his Grandfather - See Live at Radio City - Although the line "Oh girl you're singing to me still" seems out of place for this meaning, I wouldn't call it romantic as it seems to be about remembering someone - ie his grandfather?
