If these walls came crumblin' down
Fell so hard, to make us lose our faith
From what's left you'd figure it out
And still make lemonade taste like a summer day

Stay, beautiful baby
I hope you
Stay, American baby
American baby

Nobody's laughing now
God's grace lost and the devil is proud
But I've been walking for a thousand miles
One last time, I could see you smile

I (I) hold (hold) on to you
You bring me hope, I'll see you soon
And if I don't see you
I'm afraid we've lost the way

Stay, beautiful baby
I hope you
Stay, American baby
American baby

I hold on to you
You lift me up and always will
I see you in life
Hope I don't get left behind

I (I) hold (hold) on to you
You bring me hope, I'll see you soon
And if I don't see you
I'm afraid we've lost the way

Stay, beautiful baby
I hope you
Stay, American baby
I hope you
Stay, beautiful baby
I hope you
Stay, American baby
American baby
American baby
Stay, American
Beautiful, beautiful

Nobody's laughing now
But you could always make me laugh outloud

Stay, American baby
American baby
Stay, American baby
American baby

(Jam)

    Its about America and our American way of life, our freedom as Americans and our you. S. Constitution being ignored. The you. S. Is our "Baby" and we need too stand up and speak out when the government passes new laws and regulations that go against what we as Americans believe in. The song has to do with 9/11, the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and how America is changing. If America changes too much with these new regulations, laws and foreign policies, then America as we know it will not stay American.
    I think that's what Dave Matthews was talking about in that song.
