    Rocketown

    Michael W. Smith

    from the album The Big Picture A Friday night affair
    Out in the city heat
    Always a party there
    Along the sordid street
    And it was guaranteed
    The place to be was Rocketown

    The drinks were two for one
    Inside the crowded bars
    The girls would make their run
    Down on the boulevard
    It was the idol place
    We lived the ways of Rocketown
    Hang around by the street light
    In the heart of the night life

    There came a certain man
    A stranger to the crowd
    We didn't understand
    What he was all about
    He walked a different pace
    So out of place in Rocketown
    They made a fool of him
    They teased him when he's speak
    But when they knocked him down
    He turned the other cheek
    He told me I could find
    A life outside of Rocketown
    Hang around by the street light
    In the heart of the night life

    (CHORUS)
    What was his mission
    Where was he going
    Why was his heart light always glowing
    All I was missing
    He stood there holding
    What was his secret
    Could I know it

    Some didn't like him near
    Some laughed and turned away
    But me, I longed to hear
    All that he had to say
    He had a peace of mind
    I couldn't find in Rocketown
    And when I reached down inside me
    I could feel the emptiness

    (CHORUS)
    He said it's in the heart
    This change that comes to be
    Now he had done his part
    The rest was up to me
    As we were standing there
    He said a prayer for Rocketown
    As we were standing there
    He said a prayer for Rocketown

    He walked off silently
    And prayed for me
    And Rocketown..
