DMB Saved My Life

As a child and teenager, I always felt confused about who I was. I was supposed to have favorites-- favorite color, favorite food. I was supposed to know what I wanted to be when I grew up. I developed an eating disorder at 15 which stuck with me for a long time.  When I became a Dave Matthews Fan, it was like I had suddenly figured it all out.... I know what I was-- it gave me an identity... Everytime I hear their music, I feel like I know who I am. I am confident and sure of myself. Their music makes me so happy!!! When I meet another fan, theres an immediate understanding of the world and each other. Its an AMAZING feeling!!!

I love Dave, too!!! The lyrics of their songs are like no others. Their music makes me happy too, but the coolest thing is no matter what emotional state I'm in, there's a DMB song for exactly what I'm feeling. And you gotta love Dave's dancing. :)

peace love and DMB :) <br />
their songs are always so profound and make you stop and think things you never thought to think before. i just saw them in West Palm and i was blown away! as always they were awesome. and i know how you feel about hearing their music and feeling alright :)
