Small Town

This song is by Thousand Foot Krutch and appears on the album That's What People Do (1997) and on the album Set It Off (2001).

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 sleeves 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 wishing someone would close their eyes,
And picture this for just a moment to theirselves.

And oh, at least that's what they say (x5)

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 oh, at least that's what they say, yeah,
That's what they say (x2)
And oh, at least that's what they say, yeah

What they say (x4)
I don't care
What they say (x4)
I don't care
What they say (x4)
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.
And oh, they greet her with a smile,
Saying they've been waiting for 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.
And oh, she wonders what went wrong
In a town where nothing's going on,
And thinks of all the others that she knows.

And she said (x9)
Wanna leave out her name (x7)
No (x7)

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