Dave Matthews Band Why I Am Lyrics

sponsored links
I grew up from the end of man
and I crushed fifteen million with a wave of my hand
I grew drunk on water turned into wine
Till I was slave and master at the same damn time

But this is why I am Why I am Why I am
Still dancin with the GrooGrux King

Out of my head and into the womb. Hello
I cant know a man that makes no sense
When I bow to a priest while he worships a witch

But this is why I am
the only one who to make you smile
Why I am a snake in the woodpile
Its Why I am still here dancin with the GrooGrux King

Out of my head and into the womb
So will my ghost take things from you
You can remember the fool that I am
Dont cry baby don't cry
The lose and the win of the world
Wrong and right us and them of the world
The you and the me of the world
Only one way out of the world

Its the lose and the win of the world
Wrong and right us and them of the world
The you and the me of the world
Only one way out of the world

(Tim Reynolds goes off)

Its why I am unlikely to agree
Why I am climbin out of my monkey tree
Why I am still here dancin with the GrooGrux King
Ive been drinkin Big Whiskey while we dance and sing
When my story ends its gonna end with him
Heaven or Hell I'm goin there with the GrooGrux King
Its Why i am the apple of your pretty eye
Why I am a snake in the woodpile
Why I am still here dancin with the GrooGrux King

out of my head an into the womb
so will my ghost take this from you
you can remember the fool that I am
Dont cry baby don't cry
