Dave Matthews Band and Dave Matthews Spotlight Lyrics

Last updated: 09/21/2007 11:00:00 AM

In the Spotlight life is so peachy
Yeah Yeah Yeah
Wouldn't you like to retire with a million?

A million beating hearts
Behind brick and cold steel piping
Fighting for the top
Fighting for the room to breathe
Bench box leaper live
Cold blanket bedless babies
Here this must stop
Here I can not stay

Big city black city
Rises all around me
Steal my sole away
Big city black city
Rise and take me over
Steal my sole away

But out
Out in the world
The night it falls
It falls much harder than I recall
Out in the world
The sirens call from every corner
To say
In the Spotlight life is so peachy
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
Unless your in the spotlight for a reason
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Caught for stealing
Somebodies riches
No No No No
Wouldn't you like to retire with a million?
Uhh...yeah

Came here from a small town
seen my dreams here in the big city
saw how disappointment

Here I can not stay
Oh You!
Big city black city
Rise and take me over
Steal my sole away
Big city black city
Rises all around me
Steal my sole away

But out
Out in the world
The night it falls
It falls much harder than I recall
Out in the world
The sirens call from every corner
To say
In the Spotlight life is so peachy
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
Unless your in the spotlight for a reason
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Caught for stealing
Somebodies riches
No No No No
Wouldn't you like to retire with a million?
Uhh...yeah

Big city black city
Rise and take me over
Steal my sole away
Big city black city
Rises all around me
Steal my sole away

But out
Out in the world
The night it falls
It falls much harder than I recall
Out in the world
The sirens call from every corner
They say

In the Spotlight life is so peachy
Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah
Unless your in the spotlight for a reason
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Caught for stealing
Somebodies riches
No No No No
Wouldn't you like to retire with a million bucks?
Uhh...yeah yeah yeah yeah

This is a great treasure! My friend made a mix CD for me and this song was on it-LIVE version. What DMB concert disc is it played on?



Spotlight doesn't see much light at all | Reviewer: Steve | 7/14/2004

I LOVE THIS SONG!!! My question is why haven't they put it on an album and why don't they play it more often. This is one of thier most rare songs and I wish it wouldn't be.
