"Small Town" as written by John Lee Smith and Ray Riddle....
I heard a place not too far from here
Is handing out answers
About why we are here
And it's a small town in a small world
And the congregation's small too
But somehow I think they're telling the truth

And in the same small town there is a girl
She's a good looker but she's mad at the world
And she's wondering about tomorrow and why she's here
She's sick and tired of using her sleeve to wipe her tears

And oh oh,
You can tell by the look that's in her eyes
She's not that well
She's wishin' someone would close their eyes
And picture this for just a moment to their selves
And oh, at least that's what they say
At least that's what they
that's what they say
that's what they say
At least that's what's they say

She sits alone
She's a re-run queen
The sun shines through her window
Enough to make out her figurine
The neighbors look at her strange
'cause she's lived there her whole life
And they still don't know her name
She likes to keep to herself
'cause she can't find nobody else

And you can tell by the look that's in her eyes
She's not that well
She's wishing someone would close their eyes
And picture this for just a moment to their selves

And at least that's what they say, yeah
At least that's what they
That's what they say
That's what they say
And at least that's what they say,
Yeah, yeah

[Repeat: x4]
What they say

And I don't care

[Repeat: x4]
What they say

And I don't care

[Repeat: x4]
What they say

And I don't care
No

She wanders through the town
To find this place she's heard about
Thinking maybe they can figure out what's wrong, oh
They greet her with a smile
Saying they've been waitin' quite some while
Just to let her know she's worth more than she's ever dreamed of

And her heart opens wide
And for the first time in her life
She feels the touch of Jesus deep inside, oh
she wonders what went wrong
In a town where nothing's going on
And thinks of all the others that she knows

[Repeat: x9]
And she's sad

[Repeat: x7]
Want to leave out her name

[Repeat: x7]
No

She wanders through the town
To find this place she's heard about
Thinking maybe they can figure out what's wrong
They greet her with a smile
Sayin' they've been waitin' quite some while
Just to let her know she's worth more than she's ever dreamed of

    General Commentthat kinda ruined my whole thought... i always thought he was saying and she's sad... i thought this worked because she was sad thinking of all the other people she knows who don't have Jesus :) but now that i actually know the words... cherrysweets sounds good to me!

    General CommentI've never actually heard this song (there goes my credibility:)), but when I read that line I thought she would be talking about Jesus to everyone she knew. I also thought of the verse: "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved" [Romans 10:9]

    General CommentIm not christian...Im totally anti-christ, but I love this song...The fact that Krutch is a christian band doesnt bother me, this is just a really good song about a girl, a girl that anyone could identify with...at least that's what they say...
