"Would you like to dance around the world with me?"

Rediscovered one of my favorite DMB songs tonight: I'll Back You Up, from their very first album, "Remember Two Things" (1993). I remember listening to this song over and over again during my freshman year at BYU. Something about the lyrics and the acoustic sound is just so tragically beautiful. Nothing but love for this incredible musician and his amazing band.



I remember thinking
I'll go on forever only knowing I'll see you again
But I know the touch of you is hard to remember
But like that touch I know no other
And for sure we have danced in the risk of each other
Would you like to dance around the world with me?

I'll be falling all about my own thing
And I know you're the heaviest weight
When you're not here that's hung around my head

And your lips burn wild, thrown from the face of a child
And in your eyes the seeing of the greatest few, hey
Do what you will, always
Walk where you like, your steps
Do as you please, I'll back you up

I remember thinking
Sometimes we walk, sometimes we run away
But I know no matter how fast we are running
Somehow we keep, somehow we keep up with each other

I'll be falling all about my own thing
And I know you're the heaviest weight
When you're not here that's hung around my head

And your lips burn wild, thrown from the face of a child
And in your eyes the seeing of the greatest few, hey
Do what you will, always
Walk where you like, your steps
Do as you please, I'll back you up

I'll be falling all about my own thing
And I know you're the heaviest weight
When you're not here that's hung around my head

And your lips burn wild, thrown from the face of a child
And in your eyes the seeing of the greatest few, hey
Do what you will, always
Walk where you like, your steps
Do as you please, I'll back you up
