Lyrics Post: “Recently”


I’ve loved this song since the first time I heard it a long while back, decades even. An early gem from Dave Matthews. The music, the lyrics, the guitar play, the tempo…just love it to bits.


“Recently I’ve been
All of content and dreaming I have been”
‘Cause I been lately seeing
Quite a bit of this woman live on my street
People stare and we just ignore everything
People stare and we just ignore them
And they go away, go away
She comes to me
I watch her drink
I watch her comb her hair
Both say that we never before have
Felt as recently
People stare and we just ignore
What’s the use in hiding out
She says all the time
Let their eyes do the worrying about
She and me go to places quiet
Where we are quite alone
Kiss and we hold together
We will be until we’re done
People stare and we just ignore
What’s the use in hiding out
She says all the time
Let their eyes do the worrying about
Walk and talk, we both do quite well
And kissing all the time, kissing all the time
And I’m looking forward to much more
Both say that we never before
Never before have felt as recently
People stare and we just ignore everything
People stare and we just ignore
And they go away, go away”
