Xavier Rudd - Messages Lyrics




So now come sit down
Will you talk with me now
Let me see through your eyes
Where there is so much light
We are biding our time
For these myths to unwind
All these changes we will confront

So please beware
With every place that you head
Look to your soul
For these things that you know
For the trees that we see
Cannot forever breathe
With the changes they will confront

You know some people they just won't understand
No they just won't understand
These things
Thank you for your message but I don't understand
No I just won't understand
These things

And this sacred land
It has seen many hands
It has wealth and gold
Yet it is fragile and old
And all the greedy souls
Just don't care to know
All the changes it will confront

So speak out loud
Of the things you are proud
And if you love this coast
Then keep it clean as it hopes
'Cause the way that it shines
May just dwindle with time
With the changes it will confront

You know some people they just won't understand
No they just won't understand
These things
Thank you for your message but I don't understand
No I just won't understand
These things
You know some people they just won't understand
No they just won't understand
These things
Thank you for your message but I don't understand
No I just won't understand
These things

So hold nice and close
I want to get to your soul
So that when it is cold
You won't feel so alone
'Cause the roads that you take
May just crack and break
With the changes you will confront

With each gift that you share
You may heal and repair
With each choice you make
You may help someone's day
Well I know you are strong
May your journey be long
And now I wish you the best of luck
Well I know you are strong
May your journey be long
And now I wish you the best of luck

You know some people they just won't understand
No they just won't understand
These things
Thank you for your message but I don't understand
No I just won't understand
These things

    Xavier Rudd was possessed by God for 4:02

  4. Elise Wiley

    Why is everyone commenting “weeds”

    Fitzgoblin

    this song was on the show. Season 3 Episode 14. Weeds played the best music at the perfect scenes. genius.

  5. katie galloy

    When my brother died from a heroin overdose this song spoke so much to me. It was the first song that came on Pandora when I finally had a minute, alone, to comprehend what had happened. While alive, my brother had shown me numerous Xavier Rudd songs; this was not one of them. In that moment alone, it felt as though he was trying to show me such beauty despite the despair of his loss. This song is simply amazing and I will forever hold it close to my heart

    tom mellor

    Lots of love to you through this time. X

    Fitzgoblin

    I understand.

  10. Pixie Whittle

    beautiful song ...

  11. pklifter

    Anyone know the female singers name?

  12. Ones&Zeros

    Slightly Paul Simon and slightly Bob Marley in some songs you will hear. As a descendant of the Aboriginal people of Australia though, who most certainly know that the lands they dwell upon are their lifeblood, the man has the right idea about protecting our Dear Mother Earth in the same way she provides for us. Respect from another proud Australian who one day, as a white fella, would dearly love to spend time with the original custodians of this Great Land and learn their proud traditions and ways. Peace out all :)

  13. Forau DNB

    Beautiful

  28. Anthony & Carrie Arcane

  29. robinblitz99

    xavier rudd and xavier wulf need to make a song that shit would bang

  30. Rguha Liolrm

    People who are comparing him to Paul Simon should have their ears checked.. it's an insult to Paul Simon.
    This DOES sound like Passenger who's music I totally hate exactly because of his voice :-D
    Ok ok.. flag me down.. no idea how I ended up here.
    The instrumental part of this music is good though.. tasteful.

    Siuil

    to me it sounds a bit like the singing in "call me Al"

    Ptuffgong

    Like Passenger? I think you're the one who needs his ears checked. 500 people who think his voice sounds a little like Paul Simon can't be wrong. I see the similarity, and Paul Simon is one of my favorite songwriters. He sounds nothing like Passenger. And I understand people either love or hate Passenger's voice. But they're not remotely alike.

  31. incorrigiblealice

    Sounds just like Paul Simon.

  32. Judy Bou

    Weeds. He sounds so much like Paul Simon.

    Roxanne Cuffy

    Yeah boy! I thought it was Paul Simon

  33. Zach Decker

    reminds me of paul simon

    jennifer hughes

    Zach Decker Exactly.

    Stuart M.

    I could have swore this was Paul Simon first time I heard it too.

    i love this song

  35. Marty H

    heard this song playing on someones car stereo at a lookout spot while in australia...I was with a bunch of really amazing friends and we watched the sun go down.

  36. Jason Kerr

  38. Tom A

    You know some people won't understand, just won't.

  39. jug andraz

    does anybody know who is he singing with ?

    Sam Taylor

    +jug andraz little known folk singer/somgwriter named Beth Preston

    jug andraz

    thank u !

  40. casper sp0oks

    Hi. (Sorry for my English)

    daniel suggett

    Sorry can't understand what your saying ??

  41. Steve Solomon

    chorus sounds like "Cecilia" by Simon & Garfunkel

    Bruce L

    Yes, great observation. He sounds so much like Paul Simon. Beautiful.

    Steve Solomon

    That's true too, but what I mean is at 1:46 the chord and melody sound similar to the song "Cecelia" by simon and garfunkel, check it out.

    Danielle DeRosa

    @Steve Solomon Fun's song "Some Nights" is either a huge nod to Simon and Garfunkel's "Cecilia"

    James Jackson

    Interesting, I love Simon and Garfunkel but would've never made that connection. Cecilia just has a much more upbeat sound to me.

    Debra Hanks

    It most def does! I was a hippie during this time of my life..Simon and Garfunklel were my fav...brings back memories ..awe the good ole days...love this..been watching Weeds again

  42. joey cross

    Damn I miss weeds so fucking much #weedsforlife!

    incorrigiblealice

    I watch it SO often, still!

  43. Oscar Prince

    does any1 know the tuning for this song?

    Bruce L

    The tonic note is in the key of c sharp. Goes to f sharp and repeats back to c sharp with that same chord progression all over again.

    Colin Lyall

    +Anarchyuk1 Capo on 1st fret will make that key easier. c# then becomes D and so on....

  44. Joe Mike P

    Please hear JON HENRIK "JOJK" if you like this kind of music

  45. Jose Garcia

    Who cares he sounds like Paul Simon?! Fuck off! Elvis Presley sounded like every Black Blue and R&B musician that had ever existed before him. Did you have a problem with that? What was that? No? So shut the fuck up and have a cherry pop!

  46. Jose Garcia

    Jonathan DeLeon

    thank you for your message, but i just don't understand.. (ha, see what i did there?) na but seriously. peace, love, and hugs brotha. :D 

    Ptuffgong

    Wow. I think you are the one who needs a cherry pop. CHILL, dude. I'm sure people mean it as a compliment. Relax and enjoy life. Stop stressing so much.

  47. Jose Garcia

    WEEDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  48. Thakiid101

    paul simon instantly came to mind

    S K

    Totally Agree

    Elmo

    @Thakiid101 Both Xavier and Simon are air signs... Gemini and Libra respectively.

  49. DustyBoots922

    im still convinced this is paul simon

  50. LN481012

    first heard this when i was in south africa and now I can't stop thinking of all these wonderful things i saw and experienced while listening to this

    cayman martinson

    south africa! i am from sa! i want him to come to us

    graham bennett

    Also from South Africa Durban. wish he would come here

  51. Meint Veldman

    I thought this was Paul Simon when hearing it for the first time.
    It's a great song, but really sounds like mr Rudd does everything he can to emulate mr Simon.

  52. chezzburger1000

    It's about greed fucking up the earth and were all wondering what the fuck might happen because of it  (myths unwind) I understand and I say stand up don't let greed and people who conspire with it  fuck up our earth !!!!!!!!!!

  53. francis walker

    for some reason this song brings so much happiness to my heart

  54. Domas Dieliautas

    weeds...

  55. MichaelBallack91

    Probably a Paul Simon song.

  56. ngc4594

    this song s tunes sound a lot like another song i ve heard but i cant remember what song...

  57. PimpleJThomas

    no you're right, the first time i heard it i thought he was Paul (and i love his voice) but Xavier Rudd has also an amazing voice and style

  58. marie alice

    ADC,caaaaamp

  59. Hizzorm

    Weeds, love this serie :3

  60. Tabel Cloth

    i just realized yesterday- Some Nights by the lame band 'fun' ripped off this melody.
    Xavier yours is sooo much better.

  61. Mark E.

    Bodhisattva. Probably better than Paul Simon, but maybe not. It's up to your ears for sure!

  62. Mark E.

    Bodhisattva.

  63. Vasthy Mompoint

    Like it's straight from Graceland!! I love it tho :)

  64. Vasthy Mompoint

    Yes!! It comes on Pandora and they don't even site this as being similar! So weird!

  65. katprowling

    I had to do something that I really did not want to do. It was a hard decision that I had to make. I had never heard this song until I came back to the room where my Pandora was playing it. The song was at the 3:00 mark and it was like speaking to me. Good song nonetheless

  66. kim bit

    Everyone needs to get off their iphones and stop with the Taylor Swift crap and listen to this song. Great messages in here indeed. In fact, all his music is pretty inspirational and invaluable, especially in this day and age. And yes, he does sound a lot like Paul Simon, but different enough to be still appreciated for who he is, not just who he sounds like.

  67. SingAsImFlogged

    beautiful song. Think i heard it on weeds.

  68. ChandlerDeck

    it sounds like paul simon

  69. Danny Mosquera

    sounds like brook fraser

  70. Tara Kivlichan

    My friend and I are listening to and loving this tune right now... and we stumbled onto your comment. Reading it makes this song just that much more beautiful. Congratulations!!!

  71. SamanthaCarterFan01

    This song is amazing

  72. IIxMac

    I was 110% sure this was Paul Simon

  73. Lachlant1984

    I never even thought of that, he does sound a bit like Paul Simon, doesn't he. I never thought of that.

  74. P S

    This is like "Imagine" or "War is Over." Timeless!!!

  75. Caitlin Hopkins

    I gave birth to my son to this song. :)

  76. hannahbananana24

    This song is so perfect.

  88. TheDangerPickle

    He actually started playing music at age 5, and was HEAVILY influenced by Simon and Garfunkle.

  89. Jadewyn

    @PigwallProductions It's not just you-- I thought it WAS Paul Simon til I took a closer look at Pandora. :P

  90. Paul Gall

    Is it just me or does he sound like Paul Simon?
