Song Lyric Sunday – Where You Come From by Britton Buchanan

I’m a huge fan of The Voice and I have to say, this season wasn’t as great as others I’ve seen in the past.  However, there were a few good singers and songs to be had.  I’m usually pretty good at spotting the finalists from the beginning, but I was pretty wrong about this season.  Two of the finalists were in my top picks, but I’m not sure I really thought they would win.

This song, written by Britton Buchanan, really made me hope that he would win.  It is everything I love about music and lyrics.  It is raw and it really digs deep into my feels.  I wanted him to win after I heard this song, but as soon as Brynn sang Adele’s Skyfall, I knew that he’d lost it.  I truly hope he continues to write and sing.  I would for sure buy his album!

Anyway, I do hope you enjoy (if you didn’t happen to catch it on The Voice finale).

I trade guts for glory
I trade love for pain
I trade my tomorrows
If you just say my name
This spool and this needle
This blood in my veins
I’m an innocent victim
On a runaway train

But it’s time to let go
It’s time to break free
From these sins that I hold
And this blood that I bleed
Don’t say goodbye
You don’t have to hold on
The place where you come from is gone

I found God in the backseat
Of a stranger’s used car
I found faith in the rumble
Of a stranger’s guitar
I found love at the sea
In a stranger’s blue eyes
And I found salvation
In a stranger’s goodbye

But it’s time to let go
It’s time to break free
From these sins that I hold
And this blood that I bleed
Don’t say goodbye
You don’t have to hold on
The place where you come from is gone
Oh it’s gone

The place where you come from is gone
The place where you come from is gone, gone
The place where you come from
So gone

I found the lyrics at genius.com, but I fixed some mistakes that I found when I listened to the song.

  1. We don’t have cable or watch much TV, except movies (King Ben *will* have his movie of the day/week/month on repeat) so I’ve not seen The Voice.
    I agree with you that he’s got a good voice and wow, wrote his own song too. 👏👏🎸🎤
