"Follow You Home" as written by and Chad/kroeger Kroeger....
Well, you can dig me up a grave
And try and stick me in the ground
Well, you can tie me to the bed
And try and beat me half to death
But you can never keep me down
Well, you can stick me in a hole
And you can pray all day for rain
You can shoot me in the leg
Just to try to make me beg
And you can leave me there for days

And I'll stay alive
Just to follow you home, yeah
And I will survive, mmm
'Cause you're my Mississippi princess
You're my California queen
Like the duchess of Detroit
And every city in between
You can slap me in the face
And you can scream profanity
Leave me here to die alone, but
I'll still follow you home
I'll still follow you home

You can make a couple calls
And tell your brothers I'm in town
Put a bounty on my head
And tell my parents that I'm dead
And hope to hell I'm never found
You can steal me the keys
To your daddy's Cadillac
You can tamper with the brakes
Call it a mistake
And pray I'm never coming back

And I'll stay alive
Just to follow you home, yeah
And I will survive, mmm
'Cause you're my Mississippi princess
You're my California queen
Like the duchess of Detroit
And every city in between
You can slap me in the face
And you can scream profanity
Leave me here to die alone, but
I'll still follow you home
I'll still follow you home

C'mon, mmm, oh

(You can dig me up a grave
And try and stick me in the ground
You can tie me to the bed
And try and beat me half to death
But you can never keep me down)

And I will survive
'Cause you're my Mississippi princess
You're my California queen
Like the duchess of Detroit
And every city in between
You can slap me in the face
And you can scream profanity
Leave me here to die alone, but
I'll still follow you home (I'll still follow you home)
I'll still follow you home (I'll still follow you home)
I'll still follow you home (I'll still follow you home)
I'll still follow you home (I'll still follow you home)
I'll still follow you home

    General CommentCreepy, But amazingly performed, especially with the beginning kicks and the back up singer in there. Great original song. They've reinvented Nickelback while still keeping what made them great

    General CommentI don't neccessarily believe the song is about stalking, but about not letting go of the women/girl he loves. I feel he was in love with this girl and she broke his heart. Due to that he dosn't want to let her go. I think he keeps following her to tell her he loves her and that they should be together. It sounds like a girl that I fell hard for and for no reason at all you ended it. I would call her all the time and try to tell her we were right for each other. I did not "stalk" her like it sounds like Chad is doing in this song. Bottom line: he dosn't want to let the one he loves go. Great song!

    General CommentI don't think the girl broke up with him or anything, I think he fell in love with a girl and he's saying she couldn't get rid of him even if she tried. He' ll never let her go. Its a great song and I love the little drum intro. This album has a lot of double base. DANIEL ADAIR ROCKS.

    General CommentThis song is definetely about atlkig; or at least, a severe obsession with this one woman. He's saying; you can try to kill me, curse me, hate, beat me- but i'll still be following you around. Something like S&M... and whatnot. Apparently this girl doesn't want anything to do with him; but he's still obsessed with her... it's sad.

    ANd plus, it's obvious that he's never going to give up o nher- but I don't think he loves her; just obsessed.

    General Commentlol, there's a fine line between unrequited love and stalking sometimes. i'm not sure which one i think it is in this song. I think i'd lean more towards stalking though cos it's obvious no matter how he feels she doesn't want him around! i love the bit
