"Red River" as written by and Peter M Bauer Paul C Maroon....
The light is finally fading
And so i say goodnight
I step out in the darkness
Around the firelight
I step out in the darkness
Lost my way around
I'm going now
but i'll be by tonight
I'll get held up by this heart of mine

I was forgotten and
Buried in the ground
I was reborn into this world
Never made it out

I wandered through the morning
I strode along the lines
I woke up in the trenches
They left the dead behind
I woke up in the trenches
Burned up in the mud
And now i'm gone
It just bury me alive
If i'm held up by this heart of mine

Oh no
It's all forgotten and
Buried in the ground
I was reborn into this world
Never made it out

Red River
Carry me home
I never
Been so alone
When the light
Messed up my eyes
Red River
Carry me home

    My Interpretation"The light is finally fading, and so i say goodnight. I step out in the darkness around the firelight.I step out in the darkness, lost my way around. I'm going now, but i'll be by tonight. I'll get held up by this heart of mine."

    The troubles are over, so I'll be leaving. But I'll be back because I can't just let this happen.

    "I was forgotten and buried in the ground. I was reborn into this world; never made it out."

    After all I did, people seemed to forget about me. I came back and still haven't finnished what I'm doing here.

    "I wandered through the morning; I strode along the lines. I woke up in the trenches; they left the dead behind. I woke up in the trenches, burned up in the mud. And now i'm gone. It just bury me alive (lyrics might be wrong here) if i'm held up by this heart of mine."

    I did what I had to, but it seems like I was abandonded. If I keep this up, it could kill me.

    "Oh no, it's all forgotten and buried in the ground. I was reborn into this world; never made it out."

    Everything I did was taken for granted I came back to help, and I'm still here.

    "Red River carry me home. I've never been so alone when the light messed up my eyes. Red River carry me home."

    Everything that happened has confused me so much. If I just keep doing what I'm doing, everything will work out.

    The darkness is when everything is going fine, and the light is when something bad happens and everyone needs his help. He's been fighting the "light" for so long and rarely sees any appreciation. His percpective is messed up. He is just going to do what he always does and hopes it all works out. Red River could mean river of blood, like a battle or war against whatever he's fighting.

    Cool song.
