"This Is Our Town" as written by David Katz, Travis Clarke and Sam Hollander....
Dear Bradenton
You have been good to me
You kept your word
And got me through these years
All I ask is that you'll be there
When I return

From Anna's Isle to Lakewood fields
This is our town
This is who we're meant to be
This is our town
Where our roots have grown so deep
This is our town
This is where we're meant to be
This is our town
We'll keep coming back because
Dear Bradenton
As the city sleeps the night
You found us hiding out
Under parking garage lights
And you know, you know you'll find us here
When we return

This is our town
This is our town
This is our town
(What are we running for?)
This is our town
(What are we running for?)
This is our town
(This is our town)

Dear Bradenton
As I gently close my eyes
I hear you whisper softly
As we continue our goodbyes
And all I ask is that you'll be there
When I return

    General CommentI almost cried when I heard the song for the very first time, this is one of this song who doesn't need 'much' music or this complicated lyrics. This one of those songs who is so simple and they can touch everyone's soul because it’s sung with so much true emotion. The simple story about the place where you grew up with this people they can never be replaced. About this safety you can always return to, somehow this ‘anonymous promise’. This song gives me the feeling that everything is going to be okay as long as you not forget what really matters to your soul.

    General CommentAmazing song! Love that the WTK is representing Bradenton with a great song.
    Correction: klianglovesrice has the right line, its "from Anna's Isle to Lakewoods fields". Anna's Isle, is short for Anna Maria Island which is on the west coast side of Bradenton and Lakewood's fields is for Lakewood Ranch which is at the other end of Bradenton.

    General Commentthis song is great. it made me think about how everything changes, but what matters is that you change for the better. i've been attached to my hometown my entire life, and just thinking about what will happen once i move away hurts like hell.
