Wayward One

Another song post, since I have been struggling with a severe case of writers block. However, I have wanted to post this song for a long time, but never did since I'm pretty sure no one has heard this before. It's a got an 'interesting' melody, but there is something about the urgency in Myles Kennedy's vocals that really got me listening to this song. Almost all of Alter Bridge's songs have a positive hopeful feel to them, which is a refreshing break from the doom and gloom of most other bands out there.

This is "Wayward One" by Alter Bridge, and the original is here. I hope you enjoy it.

As usual, if you want to download it instead, just click here.

"Wayward One"

And they cry
And they call
As the wayward walk alone

City lights
Urban sprawl
In a place no one should know

Shown no grace
Shown no love
These mean streets are meant for none

Take them back to the start
Let the purest of heart
Know their worth is still spoken

As they fight to exist
We neglect and resist
Let this circle be broken

Broken homes
Broken lives
They repeat themselves in time

It's passed on
Down the line
Till we heal the wounds inside

It's not too late
To make things right
Dress the wounds with loves pure light


They're still waiting
They still cry
They still want to know they'll be all right

All I'm saying
Can we try?
To bring the wayward ones back home tonight
Bring the wayward one back home tonight
