HOW AWESOME IS THIS??!! DISCUSS!!!

“Is it okay if I say this?”

YESSSSS!!!!!!

I knew Be That For You would be good but it’s sooooooooo goood!!!!

Love the groovy dancy vibe… his voice ‘natch… the cool base line… that little stop before the chorus drives up again (I love that in songs, no idea why haha)

And that cover photo!!! Perfection!!! (Although they might’ve talked him into losing the jacket for a partial wet T-shirt look… throw the fans a CRUMB, David!!! hahaha (did I just say that out loud??)

So what do you guys think?????!!!!

p.s.

All the links to buy/stream etc. are here.

Lyrics! Also awesome!!

“Be That For You”

Is it ok if I say this?
Cause every time I look in your eyes
I… feel like I’m wasting
The perfect moment
To say I’m all in

You’ve got my heart
Right in your hands
I wanna stay here forever
Please let me know
What it would take
To be your forever

Can I be that for ya?
Can I be the one that’s always on your mind
Be the someone that you feel like wasting time with
I’ll do anything and everything I can
Just to be that
Just to be that
Can I be that for ya?

When your head’s underwater
You’re sinking in can’t seem to catch your breath (Eh)

I’ll be there beside you
Lifting you up
When it’s too much
I’ll be that place
When you need to hide
I’ll bring you the shelter
When you’re unsure
I’ll be your steady
Come on tell me

Can I be that for ya?
Can I be the one that’s always on your mind
Be the someone that you feel like wasting time with
I’ll do anything and everything I can
Just to be that
Just to be that
Can I be that for ya?
Can I be that for ya?

You’ve got my heart right in your hands
I wanna stay here forever
Please let me know what it would take
To be your forever

Can I be that for ya?
Can I be the one that’s always on your mind
Be the someone that you feel like wasting time with
I’ll do anything and everything I can
Just to be that
Just to be that

Can I be that for ya?
Can I be the one that’s always on your mind
Be the someone that you feel like wasting time with
I’ll do anything and everything I can
Just to be that
Just to be that
Can I be that for ya?

Can I be that for ya?
Can I be that for ya

    Thanks for the chance to comment beyond tweet size. I was online last night at midnight MDT to listen to this new song and was blown away. The word “awesome” is overused, but I’m calling it: AWESOME!

    It was the middle of the night. I didn’t even know what to think, or say, or how to react when I needed to share with friends who were already asleep. I don’t know how many times I listened to it before I finally went to bed and gave that amazing earworm a rest. Back at it this morning; and thanks to the posted lyrics, I am now a backup singer.

    This is an everything song, and I love everything about it—tempo, lyrics, that voice, the melody, the hesitation syncopation, going up the scale and down the scale. It has a vibe and it has a mood. It is bouncy and it is smooth. You can dance to it and you can swoon to it. Or you can just listen over and over and feel blessed to be a David Archuleta fan.

      YES!!!! to everything you said!! “this is an everything song” … it is!!!

      I loved the feel of it right away… leapt out of my chair like a dancing fool… but when I calmed down enough to listen to the lyrics… gahhhh… “every time I …look in your eyes
      I… feel like I’m wasting… The perfect moment… To say I’m all in”… chest-clutcher right there!!!

    Everything you said Taterzen!!
    This is epic and the TikTok with the Crush throwback is perfect!
    The cover art doesn’t seem to fit tho??!
    Or is it just me??

    I often think back to the time when David thought of not continuing on with music and how he went to that writing session in Nashville where Numb was born. We owe Trent Dabbs and producer Jamie Kenney so much! That session was in 2014 and here we are in 2021 and there is no doubt David has found a way to sing his truth with this song cutting straight to the heart. David has shared something really important with his latest “baby.”

  4. Pepper says:

    What a sweet, fun, good vibe, great song and yes….to all the comments and this post. 🙂 A great little love song! I see a video is coming, nice. ❤️

  5. TOfan says:

    Too many David riches today!!!

    Here’s the In Pieces musical song Love Me, Love Me Not:

    And the videooooooo for BTFY, which is all David all the time… what more do you need in a David video??

    What do you guys think???

  6. refnaf says:

    Eeeeep!
    Cool to hear David getting so into a musical theatre song ! I like it!
    The vid is great….. Dancing, jumping, happy, singing David!!! Def could not want for more!!!!!!!!

  7. emmegirl14 says:

    Goodness, I loooove this song, that smooth easy groove. TaterZen described it perfectly!
    And yes, those lyrics. I think you’re right Janey H! He doesn’t write about it if he’s not feeling it.

    The video, anything where he moves, I’m all in!!

  8. TOfan says:

    On the video, I confess I got mild “D trapped in a crazed fan’s basement” vibes, hahaha.

  9. Janey H. says:

    I’d buy a shirt if it had a pic of D doing one of his leaps on it, yes I would.

  10. Anonymous says:

    Kinda love watching David and his organic dance moves.
    Guess I’ll have to go watch again.

  11. TOfan says:

    I hope I’m not the only one who’d never heard of a “visualizer” lol…. even after Googling it, I’m still extremely fuzzy on the whole thing.

    • emmegirl14 says:

      I just thought it was some new techie term I’d never heard of, seeing as how I use to mix up the two big social media platforms “MyFace” and “Spacebook” 🤪

      And can I just add one more time how awesome I think this guy is!

    • missbianca says:

      I’d never heard the term either, but to add to the fuzziness, I Googled it, too. Searching on “visualizer music video” seemed to get the best results. I liked this page, where the author admits to also being fuzzy on the whole thing: https://www.34st.com/article/2017/11/visualizers

      What I got from that is “no plot,” ” the new lyrics video,” and “placeholder for a full video.”

  12. TOfan says:

    So who all’s going to D’s UG concert tomorrow (Friday) night??! Or live-streaming like me??!!!

    I love that you have until the 29th to watch it… or rewatch…

    Once is never enough for a David concert, after all. 😎

    Here’s the link for tix:

  13. TOfan says:

    Sooooo good!!

    • Janey H. says:

      This is currently my favorite thing in David-land. It shows off everything I like best about him including his performance skills which are off the chart. He needs to make this director his new best friend.

      • emmegirl14 says:

        Me too Janey! Love everything about it ….. from the tune to the lighting to the hair to the setting to the strut ….. and that blue suit!

        • Janey H. says:

          The above video has fallen to second place right behind the Friday UGA concert. What even was that???

  14. angelofdja says:

    Love all these recent goodies from David! He sure knows just what we need even when we didn’t know we were in “need”!!! LOL 😆

  15. Janey H. says:

    if anyone needs me i’ll be watching the UGA show again ♥
    ps. anyone know how many times is too many?
