"Where Are You Going (Busted Stuff version)" as written by Gavin Richard Harrison and Ricardo A. Byer....
Where are you going
With your long face
Pullin' down
Don't hide away,
Like an ocean
That you can't see
But you can smell
And the sound of waves crash down.
I am no superman
I have no reasons for you.
I am no hero,
Aw that for sure,
But I do know one thing,
That's where you are is where I belong.
I do know
Where you go,
Is where I wanta be.

Where are you going,
Where do you go.
Are you looking for answers,
To questions, under the stars
Well if along the way,
You are grown weary,
You can rest with me
Until a brighter day
When you ok.

I am no superman,
I have no answers for you.
I am no hero,
And that's for sure.
But I know one thing,
That's where you are, is where I belong.
I do know
Where you go,
Is where I want to be.

Where are you going
Where do you go.

Where do you go.
Where are you going,
Where do you go.

I am no Superman
I have no answers,
For you.
I am no hero,
Aw that's for sure.
But I do know one thing,
That's where are,
Is where I belong.
I do know
Where you go,
Is where I wanta be.

Where are you going
Where do you go.

And a where are you going.
Where...lets go!

    General CommentDave has said that the song is ambiguous, and to try to prove that to himself, he has dedicated it to farmers at Farm Aid (2002), for "peaceful solutions" (10.24.02) and for soldiers (D&T tour 2003).

    But I think the song was written with a woman in mind (his wife most likely). He is saying "no matter where you go or where life takes us, I'll be there by your side." As Dave has said in interviews, home is wherever his family is. So I'm not sure why Dave wants it to be "ambiguous" when it has a universal message in the context of "I'll always be with you." It's actually one of Dave's most universal songs.

    General Commenti think that this is for someone who has a lot of questions about life, someone searching for answers, unsure of who she is, and uncontent with where where she currently is. so she wanders, not knowing how to start or where to go. Now, there's someone although confused as to why she's still feeling that way, promises to stay with her, or go wherever she wants to. and even if she makes him feel that he fell short on what she is looking for, he'd stay with her because that's where he belong.

    oh well, it's just me. :)

    General Commenti suppose that the lyrics to this song could have possibly come from the same inspiration that caused Dave to write "Busted Stuff"... its a more introspective version of the same song... not as cute, and not nearly as creative, but definitely an important part of the whole feeling you get from being Busted Up...

    My impression is that its about a girl that doesnt want to date anyone... she just has friends, and she might like Dave, but Dave is trying to see if she is interested by dropping this hint... in the form of a song...

    General CommentCall me crazy (or wishful thinking) but I believe this song is to his fans. Why I say this is because of these lines:
    Are you lookin' for answers
    To questions under the stars
    And if along the way
    You are growing weary
    You can rest with me until a brighter day, you're okay

    I think this is him telling us that his songs he writes because that's what he does. He's not trying to solve everyones' problems or give everyone answers because he doesn't have any answers, but if we want to relax and listen to his music and enjoy life for a moment, then he is more than happy to do that for us.
    Where WE are is where HE belongs. (and I certainly agree with that)
    Just my opinion.

    General Commenti dunno but if you listen to the instruments and to the melody, it is very Crash into Me. i like how the lyrics portrays honesty in a sense that a man tells what he can not give to someone, but despite his inadequacy, he assures that he will always be with her.

    ps
    its kinda romantic yet impractical (imagine, having someone who only promises to be with you).

    pps
    i like AmyKate's opinion, one of those read-between-the- lines thing :)

    General CommentThe perfect song to complete The Lillywhite Sessions and make them "Busted Stuff"... I loved the Lillywhite Sessions when I heard them last year and this song just adds so much to them and completes the CD... It's a great follow-up to the mellow-ness of Grace is Gone and Bartender...

    Plus, I like what gabe_ph is saying... It's just a guy telling a girl that he can't promise her everything, but he will still always be with her...
