Confess your kiss still knocks me off my legs
First time I saw you was like a punch right through my chest
I will forever because you'll forever be
My one true broken heart pieces inside of me
And you forever my baby

You will rest your head, your strength wants saving
And when you wake you will fly away
Holding tight to the legs of all your angels
Goodbye my love into your blue blue eyes in your blue blue world
You're my baby blue

Confess not quite ready to be left
Still I know I gave my level best
You give, you give, to this I can attest
You made me, you made me, you and me forever baby

You will rest your head, your strength wants saving
And when you wake, you will fly away
Holding tight to the legs of all your angels
Goodbye my love into your blue blue eyes in your blue blue world

You and me forever

    General Comment:What does it mean to you? Maybe Dave wants you to make your own meaning? For me it is a song about my youngest son leaving home. Brings back memories of when he was born and how fast time goes by. Is there any truer love than that you have for a child? My "Baby Blue" was born with blonde hair, blue eyes and serious heart defects. He made it through it all and is now a freshman in college, my Baby Blue!

    General Comment:Wow... not sure what to say about this song. Its beautiful is all I think one can say. Dave's farewell to Leroi. The studio recording is absolutely touching, dave's emotional voice and the true rawness of it brings tears

    General Comment:This is my favorite song on the new album and I think it’s going to be great live.

    I do agree it’s for his sister. Listening to the intro to sister and this song is very identical.

    But like many Dave songs, they can have more than one interpretation. It could be a final tribute to Leroi finally saying bye, since in an interview he wishes he would have said bye to him.

    I also think it’s a love song about two lovers who split up for the meantime but know they will eventually spend forever together:
    A guy splits up with a girl because he is preoccupied in something else and knows he would not have time for a relationship in this part in his life or is even seeing another woman. He’s torn apart from the break-up, but he knows it must be done. He sees that the girl is an emotional wreak but cannot do anything to help her. But he knows eventually they will be get back together and be together forever.

    General Comment:This song can be about Leroi or his sister. Like a previous user said this song have several meanings.
    To me this song remind of lost love. Love that was so deep but it was lost somewhere on the way.
    "Confess, your kiss still knocks me off my legs.
    The first time I saw you was like a punch right through my chest
    and I will forever, ‘cause you’ll forever be
    my one true broken heart, pieces inside of me
    and you’ll forever, my baby be."

    I remember the first time I was kissed by my love it knock me right off my feet and the first time I saw him I was just taken away. I will forever have feelings for him because I know he will to. Both our hearts were broken and the pieces are still in me. Thats my own take on the song. Its hard to put strong feelings into words so sorry about the writing.

    General Comment:the song immediately made me think of my 1 year old daughter and her blue eyes. i flashed forward 20 years to when she leaves for college, gets married, has her own kids. the song impressed me as one focused on unconditional love, having to let go for the right reasons, and never forgetting the feelings left to you by someone so important in your life.

    it could just be a function of where i am in my life right now. but like w/ so many other dmb songs, it talked to me in ways that few other artists can.

    My Interpretation:This song is about how he wasn't ready to leave the thought of losing his sister "Confess not quite ready to be left" and that pain being revisited by the loss of LeRoi Moore. It's a tribute to two of his most memorable hard times shown through repitition, "You give, you give..," "You made me, you made me..."


    "Goodbye my love into your blue blue eyes in your blue blue world..." He's letting go of Anne's death so that he can mourn LeRoi.

    I can relate the need to move on after losing someone close as I never got over a close one that past before.

    General Comment:I agree that it's not specifically about LeRoi or specifically about his sister. It's about losing someone and saying goodbye. He obviously wrote this with both of their deaths hanging over his head, but I don't think you can say they are about either individually. Terrific song though. He's got one hell of a voice. I like this, Time Bomb, and Lying In the Hands of God.

    General Comment:I think this is about his son. It seems like you can almost picture him holding his baby boy with the lines-

    "you will rest your head
    your strength wants saving
    and when you wake, fly away
    holding tight to the legs
    of all your angels."

    and the referene to "angels" could be all the people Dave and his family have lost are now watching over him and his family.
    it is the same tune to sister, it just seems to be more of a father-son relationship he's singing about now. and one of his twin daughters, Stella literally asked him, daddy when are you going to put me in a song? and he wrote Alligator Pie with that line in mind on a trip to New Orleans (as I've heard THAT in an interview)so possibly he could have been thinking of writing lyrics about his boy (who I believe is his youngest!)

    and it does go ".. your kiss STILL knocks me off my legs" maybe as in even to this day is shocked when his little boy kisses him (?)

    I will admit none of us know, and Dave likes to keep his "meanings" to himself and open for listener interpretation. Also the songwriter sometimes just sings about an imaginary situation, not necessarily his/her life, but like how a story/script writer imagines characters or a scenario.
