    Chorus is really good, the rest is meh. This may end up being an album that sounds way better in the studio versions than live.

    First song that I have really liked on first listen, but tell me, how much better would this song be if you replace the Tim solo with a Boyd or Jeff solo (violin/flute)?

    How did none of them suggest that?????

    i'm more of a fan of the whole band jamming together...why have 4 guys playing when 7 could? maybe we'll get some of that on the album, the riff is so strong that i think a guitar solo is fitting, versus gaucho and mercy where i think horn/alternate jams are quite fitting

    Great song.. I dig it from the first listen.

    I agree, as always - where is m'f'in boyd tinsley on the violin. That guy is just left out again.
    Where you ever at a DMB concert? Yes? What do people dig the most? Yes - Boyd parts.

    More than most, you really are hopeless.

    And I always find it funny how most people post their positive comments once, while a very few negative people post, re-post, and re-post again the same bullshit in as many threads a possible, looking for someone to listen to them.

    We don't care that you dislike everything. Good night.

    Can someone post the lyrics? I'm at work and I can't give it a listen.

    I personally really like it. And am honestly very surprised that more people aren't raving over this song. Really can't wait to see where it goes live!

    Re: The Riff

    Just transcribed the lyrics... I might have a word off here or there, but this is pretty accurate:

    (The Riff)

    You stay with me and maybe you and me we’ll change the game
    You did?

    And I don’t know the man that’s living in my head
    Til you reach down and bring the life back in
    No I don’t know the man that’s living in my head
    If I don’t know the woman sleeping in my bed

    Remember how we used to kiss baby
    Kiss like it was everything
    Remember how we used to love baby
    Love like it was everything

    (ooohhh)

    You stay with me and I don’t think we got to stay the same
    You stay with me and baby you and me we’ll change the game
    You stay with me I’ll follow you and we can start again
    Maybe

    I’ve got a minute or two to spare
    And I’ve got a whole fucking life to fit in there
    So why waste time staring at a TV set
    Like I got dreams to kill and people to forget

    Remember how we used to dance baby that meant everything

    You stay with me and that don’t mean we got to stay the same
    You stay with me and baby you and me we’ll change the game
    You stay with me but that don’t mean I wanna stay the same

    (ooohhh)

    You stay with me and baby you and me we’ll change the game

    Re: The Riff

    I used this video...
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=GxcyGNNQUQ0


    A few parts I wasn't sure, I came up with...

    Look for me and time that slips away
    Looking at the cracks cutting the grass ?
    I remember the little kid living in here
    ???????
    Please don't leave me baby please don't leave me now
    Sitting on the porch away from the noise up there
    The world piled high with boxes just like ?
    Please don't ever leave me alone here
    Take me out, shake off the dust, shake up the fear
    Please don't leave me baby, please don't leave me here
    If you stay with me that don't mean you gotta stay the same
    If you stay with me baby you & me will change the game
    And I don't know the man that's living in my head
    Til you reach down and bring the light within
    No I don't know the man that's living in my head
    If I don't know the woman sleeping in my bed
    Remember how we used to kiss baby
    We kissed like it was everything
    Remember how we used to love baby
    We loved like it was everyday
    If you stay with me that don't mean you gotta stay the same
    If you stay with me baby you & me will change the game
    If you stay with me I'll follow you and we can start again
    I only got a minute or 2 to spare
    And I got a whole fucking life to figure the way ?
    Spend all this time staring at the tv set
    Like I got dreams to kill and people to forget
    Remember how we used to laugh
    Take me there like it was everyday ?
    If you stay with me that don't mean you gotta stay the same
    If you stay with me baby you & me will change the game
    If you stay with me that don't mean I want to stay the same
    If you stay with me baby you & me will change the game

    Please donítí leave me Baby
    Please donít leave me yeah

    I love this song. It is by far the best of the AFTW songs we've heard so far. It builds, it has energy, it's got great lyrics, the whole band is involved and it's catchy as hell. What more could you want from a DMB song?

    Re: The Riff

    My favorite of the new ones thus far

    The ending is so great, and from what I can gather there are some better lyrics in there (though yes, more overusing "baby").

    "Sitting in a box away from the world out there..."

    Re: The Riff

    I love how you can really see how much the composition and arrangement process has shifted over the past decade...it's so evident that they put a whole lot of work into both of these aspects - even moreso than Big Whiskey, which is pretty remarkable as there were some very dynamic arrangements in BW.

    In some cases, there seem to be not just sections but almost movements, The Riff being the best example so far. But really: Gaucho, Mercy, If Only, and now The Riff...there's substance, not just filler solos and tacked-on solo sections.

    Gah.
