"Wet" as written by and Sean Rowe....
Another town another school
A new trailer park
I could burn these books alive
I am freaking out
I left my friends in the sun
Behind the graveyard with a jar of rum
And I left Joanne in the shade
What do I know about love anyway

Another year another inch
I will be tall enough
And if he hits you again
I will be your man I will put him out
You don't need to cut your life
On these razor blades or these kitchen knives
You are beautiful and I packed the Chevrolet
I hear Pittsburgh's better than this town anyway

When your heart is broke, when your eyes are wet
You go...

Let's go today

    My InterpretationAt first I thought that he was singing from the perspective of a friend of a person he loved, who had an abusive partner, and wanted to whisk them away from the horrible situation, but then my wife said she was sure it was him singing about his mother.

    Lyrics such as "another inch I will be tall enough" could refer to him being old enough to protect his mother from his father, and "another town, another school, a new trailer park" could be their family constantly moving from town to town, starting anew.

    What ever it is, it's one of his most moving and beautiful songs, and it still resonates with me every time I hear it, and was even played by my good friend at my wedding, despite it's somber tone.
