"River Town" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
And from a tiny river town you came
With momma's rock star dreams in tow
And daddy's brains
But the rats they fought you, oh yeah

Tooth and nail
With the way they rigged this game
You had to fail
But that's all behind you now boy

And from a tiny river town you came
With nothing up your sleeve
But a dirty forearm and an ace
They drugged you through that

Slaughterhouse at will
You were the soldier without a kill
You were the soldier without a kill

Oh
Who's gonna save your soul
Who's gonna make your heart beat again

And from a tiny river town you came
Across the rocky mountains all in
Search of better days
But paradise took you out and left the bill

You were the healer without the thrill
You were the ecstasy without the pill

Oh
Who's gonna save your soul
Who's gonna make your heart beat again

Who's gonna light up your dark
Who's gonna save your soul
Who's gonna be there
Who's gonna light up your dark

And from a tiny river town you came
With momma's rockstar dreams in tow
And daddy's brains
You better turn back before the frost sets in
These desert nights are for weathered men
The ones who've already given in

Oh
Who's gonna save your soul
Who's gonna make your heart beat again
Who's gonna save your soul

Now that you've given in

    General Commentthis song seems to be about a young man making a journey. someone doesnt want him to go, and they;re trying to convince him not to go.
    im probably wrong, but whatever, i think its a very good song,

    General Commenti think it's more of the journey of life, about being naive. people giving advice but just keep going on not listening, just that you have to learn everything the hard way even if you get dragged through the mud.
