A Song About Empathy

 

“Same Boat” – Zac Brown Band

The Zac Brown Band is an American country/rock band from Atlanta. They have released 7 albums since the start of their musical career in 2002, and have collaborated with many artists including Jason Mraz, Avicii, and Jimmy Buffet. The group recently released a new single in June 2021. The song “Same Boat” is all about empathy. It emphasizes that most of us are going through similar situations and we should therefore be kind and understanding to others. It also warns us about judging others too quickly without knowing their background or circumstances. It’s a song with a positive and motivating message that resonates with most listeners.

“…But you can’t judge a man until you walk a country mile in his shoes”

Lyrics

We’re all in the same boat
Fishing in the same hole
Wondering where the same time goes
We’re all in the same boat
We could all believe what we believe
And peacefully agree to disagree
But you can’t judge a man until you walk
A country mile in his shoes
We’re all in the same boat
Fishing in the same hole
Wondering where the same time goes
And money too
Tryna fix the same broke hearts
Wishing on the same stars
We’re all hoping hope floats
And we’re all in the same boat
We all been kicked and knocked around
But you ain’t gonna keep a good man down
You can run like hell from your mistakes
But you can’t hide from your truth
We’re all in the same boat
Fishing in the same hole
Wondering where the same time goes
And money too
Tryna fix the same broke hearts
Wishing on the same stars
We’re all hoping hope floats
And we’re all in the same boat
Share them beaches if you’re holding
Take those shots and keep reloading
If you can’t be nice
Don’t say nothing at all
So help somebody that might be struggling
Spread a little love, gotta give back something
If the ship keeps rocking
We’ll all go overboard
We’re all in the same boat
Fishing in the same hole
Wondering where the same time goes
And money too
Tryna fix the same broke hearts
Wishing on the same stars
We’re all hoping hope floats
And we’re all in the same boat
Yeah, we’re all hoping hope floats
We’re all in the same boat
