Song of the Day #3,459: ‘All That I Am’ – Rob Thomas

Here’s a ballad from Rob Thomas’ 2005 album …Something To Be, his first solo work after three successful albums with Matchbox 20.

Thomas released two more solo albums, including one in 2015, while Matchbox 20 went on a decade-long hiatus. The band released an album in 2012, suffered the departure of lead guitarist Kyle Cook, then reunited this year to tour with Counting Crows.

I am the one winged bird for flying
Sinking quickly to the ground
See your faith in me subsiding
See you prime for giving in
I give you all that I am

I am the sound of love’s arriving
Echoed softly on the sand
Lay your head upon my shoulder
Lay your hand within my hand
I give you all that I am

And I breathe where you breathe
Let me stand where you stand
With all that I am

I am the white dove for a soldier
Ever marching as to war
I would give my life to save you
I stand guarding at your door
I give you all that I am

I am the one winged bird for flying
Sinking quickly to the ground
I’m the blind man for a watchdog
I am prime for giving in
I’ll show you all that I am

And I breathe so you breathe
Let me stand so you’ll stand
With all that I am

And I breathe where you breathe
Let me stand where you stand
And I breathe so you breathe
Let me stand so you’ll stand
With all that I am

    We, particularly Amy, always enjoy Rob Thomas. This song sounds a bit Peter Gabriel-ish.
