ALTER BRIDGE


Wayward One Lyrics

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

[Chorus:]
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

[Chorus]

They're still waiting
They still cry
They 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

[Chorus]

Myles asked to help the self-willed or unpredictable persons of this world in this song. Those persons are the cause that can lead to devastating consequences if misguided. Its a very meaningful song.

K, this is a faith based band. Nothing agnostic about it. Sorry you dont recognize the ebb and flow of the rage between good and evil on this earth. its as natural as the ocean tidal pool.

It means more than that. U have to be Agnostic and involved in naturalism like me to understand the true meaning. All of Humanities history its been between good and evil. What he means in this song..

I really love this song. Its perhaps one of the most meaningful songs I know. I think it means that we should help those that have drifted away back to the brightly lit path.
