HERE WE ARE

Post by pirateunder40 »

After Listing to Here we are a couple of times, it has really grown on me. I love the references that he throws in about us ParrotHeads. If this is any indication of the new album I cant wait untill it is released. What are your thoughts on HERE WE ARE. I think that it is going to be a great concert and tailgate song. I cant wait to hopefully hear it live in Camden... :pirate:

I've only heard it once but I can honestly say I absolutely loved it. I hope someone posts the concert or has an MP3 of it. Great song! Stopped me in my tracks.

I loved the reference to Parrotheads. Really felt like this song was Jimmy saying thanks to the fans that have been there for many years.

Based on the 2 songs we've heard, I like the direction the new album is heading.

I loved it, I'm listening to it again right now.......the lines about the "blender's churning", the coconut shells, it's the best new song in awhile, I think.

Here are a few of the lines for those who missed it:

"Who would have guessed that all these blenders would still be churning"

"Here we are........for a family reunion <"blessed" ?> with barbecues"

"Your still grinnin', we're still winnin', there's nothing left to say"

"Here we are, with our fins up and our feathers flashin'"

That's what I thought, too......I'm looking forward to the new album even more, now!

I really liked it and am looking forward to getting the concert cd so I can listen closer. I found it really surprising that Jimmy didn't say anything to set it up as a debut of an unreleased song. And what still baffles me is that only 2 shows into the tour, we've already heard 2 songs from a yet to be released album - one of which shares the same name as the tour.

Compared to the fact that we're still waiting to hear ASPOL live. Please play it Jimmy :)

Anyway, love the tour so far. Jimmy seems more relaxed and sounds fantastic and the CR's sound better than ever. Jake and Peter were smokin' last night 8)

Lose translation of HERE WE ARE

Here we are
Here we are
Here we are
Here we are

Who’d a thought this game were playin would still be goin
Who would of guessed all thoes blenders would still be churning
Not even we on bended knee could have ever guessed it
Not even I with my head in the sky would have ever guessed it

But here we are
For a family reunion costume barbeque
All the black Sheep family outcast (And a week or Two???)

Ho the hatricks and the gold bricks still don’t have us down
[color=red](Still we Party hardy when we come to town???)[/color]Your still grinning were still winnin nothing left to say
I’m still glad as I go blind down this endless way

And here we are
[color=red](Where the Uncles friends who spill there wine on you????)[/color]And the in your Face [color=red]_______________[/color] with an attitude
All the ones who use your bathroom and eat all your food
Were the clingy deadheads who just like us and Dave Matthews

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 fins up and our feathers flashing
Here we are
With our coconut shaped bras[color=red]______[/color]

Here we are
Here we are
Here we are

Okay now I've heard it
Sounds to me like he said or meant to say:

Who would have thought this game, this flame would still be burning

Here we are with the uncool friends who spill their wine on you

maybe:
still a party for all the hearty

Coconut bras you stand in

I'm sure he made a few minor lyrical mistakes being his first time live.
