The day you came
Naked, afraid
Young mother screams and pushes you
The day you came
Oh joy begin
Weak little thing
More precious there'll be nothing, no
Oh joy begin

Let's not forget these early days
Remember we begin the same
We lose our way in fear and pain
Oh joy begin

First just one step
One word and then
With laughter sing, oh life begin
First just one step

Let's not forget these early days
Remembering we began the same
We lose our way in fear and pain
Oh joy begin

Innocent kiss
Black magic bliss
First broken bone
Sudden and swift
Oh innocence
Let's not forget these early days
Remember we begin the same
We lose our way in fear and pain
Oh joy begin
Oh joy begin

That's odd, didn't we just hear this a day or two ago?  Oh, it's a "new" release, that explains it.
Samurai Cop
The Sharon Van Etten approach to "singing."

The song title is a reference to a movie: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0130236/ but it has nothing to do with the song.
 
As Dave is now telling it on satellite radio:  Really bad movies are a guilty pleasure and he considers Samurai Cop to be one of his favorite such movies.  The movie was on in the background while he was writing the song, hence the name.
I'm usually pretty "meh" on DMB, but this song catches my ear every time
The first "7" I have ever given Dave Matthews Band.
really like this.

Not too shabby at all!  And I like how BillG played this new DMB after the CAKE song (Guitar) - two in a row that are "love em or hate em" type acts, eh?  I'll rate this one a 6 for now.  Long Live RP!!
Honestly, people either love* or hate the guy (and his band), but this is decent. It has a Kings Of Leon vibe to it (which is good and bad).

* My wife is a HUGE fan. We saw them 2 years ago and they put on a great show (and they played this song, though I have no recollection of it).

Wow. At first I didn't realize it was DMB. Caught my ear, but I'm not sure if it was cool, intriguing or annoying. It's an acquired taste, and I need to hear it again. Samurai Cop?
