A song about how much his rockstar life is killing him, it was essentially a song about being on a path that he didn’t want to be on.
“Mama don’t pray for my success anymore, yeah but mama still prays for me.” Seein’ the world ain’t really seein’ the world through windows from A to B Between alcohol and women, Adderall and adrenaline, I don’t ever get no rest Signed my life away to be the life of the party.”
Granted, it’s a total pop song, one that sonically I don’t really like at all, but I can appreciate the honesty in the message. And it couldn’t have been more accurate.
And the February came around, the racial slur incident, the hiatus, and well… you know the rest. But once again, the writing was already on the wall.
However today, Morgan Wallen is back with a brand new one, another one where we see him opening up for a heartfelt letter to his mom:
“I wrote this song for my mom a while ago, seemed like an appropriate time to share it.”
The first verse is reminiscent of the confessional nature of “Livin’ The Dream”:
“Been chasin’ songs and women, makin’ some bad decisions, God knows I’m drinkin’ too much…
And the the chorus:
“I thought you should know that all those prayers you thought you wasted on me Must’ve finally made their way on through I thought you should know I got me a new girl down in Jefferson City and, She lets me fish whenever I want to I’m still proud of where I came from, still your only damn son Can you believe I’m on the radio Just thought you should know.”
Can’t go wrong with a song straight from the heart.
