"MPLS" as written by and Nate Flynn Ben Peterson....
It's Saturday night
Snow hits my windshield going north on 494
My hair is a mess
The radio station is drowning out the sounds of the car
I know this is it
How did I get here?
For seven years they watched me drown
I know this is it
I think I'll keep going
So don't let me turn around

Halt your tongue tonight
And put your money where your mouth is
You fooled me and I believed everything you're telling me

Let's take a step back
And go through the motions leading up the path that I'm on
What if I'm wrong?
I know that I meant well
At least my head was clear all along
(Don't run away, don't turn around)
Until you're sure about everything
(Don't run away, don't turn around)
Unless you know how it's gonna be

Halt your tongue tonight
And put your money where your mouth is
You fooled me and I believed everything you're telling me
Halt your tongue tonight
And put your money where your mouth is
You fooled me and I believed everything you're telling me

(Don't run away, don't turn around)
Don't let me go
(Don't run away, don't turn around)
Don't let me go
(Don't run away, don't turn around)
Don't let me go
(Don't run away, don't turn around)
Don't let me...

Halt your tongue tonight
And put your money where your mouth is
You fooled me and I believed everything you're telling me
Halt your tongue tonight
And put your money where your mouth is
You fooled me and I believed everything you're telling me

    General CommentIsn't he saying, "hold your tongue?"
    Anyways, I can totally relate to this song. I think it is about finally being what you wanted to be or on that track despite the fact that others will try and keep you down or keep you from reaching your goals..

    General Commentpretty good
    the only thing i find weak is the chorus
    but the verses & bridge are great
