  • Lyrics
  • This was originally written about Dave's friend Hani from South Africa who played a role in ending apartheid but was tragically shot. However, Dave found this song too happy and uplifting to be about his death so the lyrics were changed to "honey, honey" on the performances. It is almost always played together with "Everyday" because the guitar is the same. >>

  • According to The Dave Matthews Band: Step Into The Light by Morgan Delancey, LeRoi Moore's sax solo pays tribute to Peanuts composer Vince Guaraldi, borrowing a few notes from "Linus and Lucy."
