baptized in muddy water

dear grayson capps... you don't know me i doubt you ever will i'm just the nobody you met at phoenix hill at the bar before the show i bought you a brew i said "i'm a nobody" you said "i'm a nobody too" i drove all that way just to see your show cause there were things that you needed to know i told about my life and how i used to be and how your words inspired changes in me we parted ways and you took the stage i felt honored when you mentioned my name "a couple of nobodies" you said out loud pointing to me standing out in the crowd my pain and sorrow lead to the slaughter down to the river baptized in your muddy water

Verlena, nothing to apologize for. I adore Grayson Capps' music. It seriously resonates with me really well for some reason. I'm glad I got the opportunity to meet him in person and tell him how much of an impact his music had on me. It feels like being reborn every time I hear it. Check him out. ;) - Raven
