This song speaks to deep things inside of me. The lyrics speak of a man with a dream who stepped out on the water, despite the fact that the tide was against him. Everyone and everything seemed to oppose him, but he decided to try and live the dream in his heart anyways, and guess what? He did it.
Now his friends bring him up when they're drinking
At the bar with his name on the side
And they smile when they can
As they speak of a man
Who took a homemade, fan-blade, one man submarine ride.
John Mayer's songwriting hits me over and over again. And one good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain. X
