"FM Radio" as written by and Joshua Fred James....
I heard about, I heard about your daddy got sick
Drove down to the river to die alone
Seven days, seven days till they found him all
Wrapped up in a blanket on the boat

So we put him in the ground
Down, down, down
Your momma said, "Stay strong, don't cry"
So that is what you did

Years later, years down
Later down the road
On a bus with your FM Radio, half drunk
A cigarette hanging out

What happened to your lonely soul?
Crying out
What happened to your lonely soul?
Screaming out

You said try and lose
You said try and lose

Everything you've known
Everything you've seen
Everything you've loved
Everything you've been

And everywhere you walk
Every song you sing
Every time you wake
It haunts you once again

My daddy ain't coming home
Daddy ain't coming home
My daddy ain't coming home
Daddy ain't coming home
My daddy ain't coming home

    General Commentthis song is pretty self-explanitory, it's obviously about someone losing their father when they were young. really sad song, but beautiful along with all of his other songs. :)

    General CommentYeah this is a very very sad song, but it is such a well written song too.
    It tells a story about a person losing their father, and I love how he never really assigns a gender to this "you" so you feel like this person. It's almost as if he's talking to you, and you can feel the same thing this person in the song feels. Every time I listen to this song it gives me chills!
