Cabs, Rain and Going Home Again ~ David Archuleta’s Who I Am

Posted by bluebar on Wednesday, June 11, 2014

12a4

Summertime vacations: Road trips!  First things first. Load up the car with all seven of my David CD’s!!  Taking David along certainly makes the trip more enjoyable.  “Never leave home without him!” and the chance to listen to the David songs I hadn’t played for a while.

There is room in my CD case for 24 discs. So, this year, I decided to include some older albums that I hadn’t listened to in years, not since I “met” David.  I added music by Billy Joel, Tom Jones, Paul Simon, Ray Charles, Elton John and Hall & Oates. (I know, oldies, but goodies!)

All very fabulously successful artists.  Mind you, I’m not giving up on David… Oh, noooooooooo, never!! Just so proud to have David in my CD case along with these greats!!

I had just listened to The Other Side of Down and was as amazed as ever over David’s “Who I Am.” Oh, David. You’re stuck in a cab for two hours, pondering your life, “taking the time out now,” “walking in my own two shoes” finding yourself. This song conveys so well the mood you were in four years ago when you wrote it.

David Archuleta “Who I Am” with lyrics:

Next CD up was Can’t Stop Dreaming by Daryl Hall.

Can't_Stop_Dreaming

The first song is titled “Cab Driver.” Wow, a cab song! Hahahaha! Btw… this is a still relevant, very jazzy and soulful song. Daryl Hall wrote “Cab Driver” almost 20 years ago. In it, he finds himself needing a cab. The driver asks: “Where am I goin’ to?” He replies: He wants to get back to his girl; he’s been on the road way too long, and sadly, it’s not the life he bargained for.

Daryl Hall “Cab Driver” Live:

Standing in the rain
Cab comes into view
Ask me, “Where am I goin’ to?”
Running for so long
Been gone too many nights
And my heart has paid the price
This ain’t heaven
This ain’t the life bargained for
My reason for living
Isn’t here inside this car
Girl, I gotta get back to you

Cab driver
Take me home
Spent too much time away
Too much time alone
Cab driver
Take me home
Spent too much time away from my baby

I need familiar streets
To show that you’re near
Feeling like a stranger here
Oh does the mirror show the miles on my face
Am I goin’ any place?

This ain’t heaven
This ain’t the life I was hopin’ for
My reason for living
Sure ain’t here inside this car
You know I’ve gotta get back to you

Cab driver
Take me home
Spent too much time away
Too much time alone
Cab driver
Take me home
Spent too much time away from my baby

I need to see the look on your face
A kiss from your lips…oh the taste, baby
Nothing waiting for me but a lonely room
I’ve gotta get back to you baby – soon

Cab driver
Take me home
Spent too much time away
Too much time alone
Cab driver
Take me home
Spent too much time away from my baby

Listening to David’s “Who I Am,” I had visions of David in LA trying to get a cab to go back home (not necessarily to see his girl, but who knows?).  Regardless he has to get back to Utah!! Via Nashville? Perhaps. But certainly David has to get back to writing and recording all that music we know is in him. And someday again, very soon, I hope my next road trip will be to see and hear David’s “jazz and soul” at a show!!

In a timeless, coming of age song, David tells us he’s “Gonna take the time now,” “It’s OK, ’cause I know where I’m going!” Trust the Archuleta!!

And as good as it is to get back home, hopefully David will never tire of being on the road!  Just remember to step out of the cab, David.
Daryl has some good advice:

“My reason for living
Sure ain’t here inside this car.”
