"The Corner" as written by and Aaron/mushok Lewis....
It sheltered me from nothing but the weather
I called it home for a moment of my life
This place I see just doesn't look familiar
I wonder if it looks the same inside

So there's the corner that I sat on
The road I walked home in the rain
And there's the star I used to wish on
It all just seems like yesterday

Days go by
Nothings getting clearer
Can't change my mind
My troubles are the same
Faces change
The names they are familiar
And the streets I see
Will stand the test of time


And those stars
Stars still shine
Shine down through the rain


And I stare out this dirty window
As this world goes slowly by
And somewhere out there is the future
That I once thought had passed me by

Sheltered me from nothing but the weather

    General CommentI think it's about looking back on a place you used to be in your life. Times when you are thankful for getting out of the situation.

    I also agree, this album is amazing.

    Song MeaningHe is singing about his childhood troubled life. He is back at his old house...maybe just taking a drive through the neighborhood where he used to live....tha's where he grew up...that's his childhood...all his memories...and pain...that he left behind but will never forget because it has helped shape him to be the person he is today. No one forgets and everyone thinks of their past...some people like to be reminded of how they felt that long ago. He's experienced a lot at the corner. That's where he would sit to think about how he wants his future to be. He'd look up at the sky and watch the stars. His troubles are still the same after all these years!!! All his worries...everything he thought is still all the same. Hasn't changed. When we think about our past experiences....it seems like yesterday...like it's a fresh memory we just made but it happened years ago. Your home shelters you from the weather. It doesn't tell you who to be or how to become the person you want to be. it doesn't teach you life lessons.... only when you put yourself out there you learn it yourself. So after he sat on the corner he would come home to know that everything is okay.
