"Georgia" as written by and Zachary Walker/hanson Hanson....
Georgia, you know that you've been on my mind
Georgia, we both learned to compromise
I'll be there for you
When everybody's coming unglued
I'll be there for you
I won't say you have to choose

I don't want to let you go
And I don't want to lose you slowly
I just want to let you know
That it's only just a little back and forth lately

Georgia, I'll be chasing you the rest of my life
Georgia, welcome to the roller coaster ride
When I come to you
I know that you'll help get through
I'll be there for you
We both know we could never choose

I don't want to let you go
And I don't want to lose you slowly
I just want to let you know
That it's only just a little back and forth
It's only just a little back and forth lately

You carry it like a heavyweight champ
It's hard to say I can't but I know I can't be right there standing

I don't want to let you go
And I don't want to lose you slowly
I just want to let you know
That it's only just a little back and forth lately

I could never let go
After all that you've been to me
I just want to let you know
That's it's only just a little back and forth
It's only just a little back and forth lately

A little back and forth lately
A little back and forth

    General CommentTaylor's wife, Natalie, is from Georgia and that is his nickname for her and Isaac and his wife got married in Georgia. So the band has said that Taylor wrote this song for his wife during her parent's divorce. "I won't say you have to choose." He's just saying he will be there for her always and that he loves her.

    General CommentWhen I first pre-ordered the CD on Hanson.net, this was the first song I listened to and I fell in love with it. My immediate thought was that Taylor wrote it for his wife, Natalie. After all, she is from Georgia and it just seems to fit. It's so sweet and if he really did write it for her, it just goes to show how much they truly care about each other and what an amazing relationship they have. :o) Just one of the amazing songs on "The Walk"

    General CommentI'm pretty sure I read that Natalie's parents got divorced, before she met Taylor. But, that doesn't really matter. Zac and Kate got married in Georgia, but Isaac and Nikki got married in Tulsa. Someone asked Taylor on a walk in the fall, if he wrote this song for his wife. He said he had, albeit begrudgingly. He admitted it. And, he's been heard referring to her as "Georgia" at concerts. Someone told me that they went to a concert, where Natalie was walking around talking to fans. Then, she was talking to Taylor later, he called her "Georgia," and she started laughing. But, this song is definitely about her. It's basically saying that no matter what, he'll always be there for her, and he loves her. I think this song is about the troubles and problems that every relationship goes through, and not giving up. Like you know it's hard and rough at times, but you don't give up. The line "Georgia, I'll be chasing you the rest of my life," I think is a great line. Because, Taylor has always talked about in interviews how he went after Natalie. It's a flawless, beautiful, very sweet song.
