Put me on that list too. Send me a PM and I'll find a trade that works for anyone who can get me a copy or an MP3 of a few of the songs played. i knew I should have set up the recorder for this show.

Some people never find it, some only pretend; but me, I just want to live happily ever after every now and then.

Yeah, I would love to hear it myself. I'm surprised no one has posted a copy of the song up? Can anyone help? Please!??

Here We Are

Here we are, Here we are, Here we are...

Who would've thought this game, this flame would still be burning?
Who would've thought that all those blenders'd still be churning?
Not even we on bended knees could've ever blessed it.
Not even I with my head in the sky would've ever guessed it, but
Here We Are
For our family re-union costume barbecue
All the black sheep, family outcasts, and a freak or two
INST.
No hat tricks and the gold bricks still don't have us down
Still a party for the hardy when we come to town
You're still grinnin' - we're still winnin' - nothin' left to say
I'm still glidin' as I go flyin' down this endless way, and
Here We Are
We're the offbeat Uncle Fred's who spill their wine on you
And the in-your-face Aunt Rachels with an attitude
All the ones who use your bathroom, then eat all your food
We're the dreamy Dead Heads who just like us and Dave Matthews
INST.
Here we are
Maybe it's because, in spite of all the work we do,
It's the child in us we really value
Here we are - with our phins up and our pheathers phlashing
Here we are - with coconut-shell brassieres chafing
Here we are - Here we are - Here we are...

I really liked it, but I think it's SO melancholy; songs like that make me cry if I'm in THAT mood.

This song is unreal...blows PATEOTW out of the water...no comparison. This is one of those Jimmy songs that sticks...very remincesent of Someday I Will. Great song...

Does anyone know for sure if this is on the PATEOTW album????

I tried to to record it again tonight but the audio went bad on me again towards the middle - plan to try again Friday.

According to posts from concert-goers, they play the video before Jimmy returns for the encores and then he and the band join in on the last lines, Here We Are live. There is always that transition point.

Yes, unless some bizarre last second change is made, HWA is on PATEOTW.

I"ve avoided this thread for just this reason - actually "puddling up" just from the lyrics :( . Can't wait to hear it LIVE but that's still over 100 days away!
