View Full Version : A certain song

I heard this song awhile ago and I want to hear it again. It was about a little boy and he gets picked on a lot by other little boys and he stood up for himself or something like that. Does anyone know the name of that song??? Thanks

I think the song your looking for is "Face to Face" from Garth's album "The Chase"...

here's some of the lyrics:

"There was a bad boy in the school yard,
waiting on you every day,
seems that everytime you turned around
he was standing in your way,
he broke your glasses the girls all laughed
then he pushed you too the floor,
til you stood up one day knowing,
you couldn't stand it anymore."

That's a good song -

isn't it really about fighting the "demons within" ? -

usually some form of fear of something,

Face to Face was also written by Tony Arata, songwriter of The Dance and The Change.

One of my favorite songs! I remember the story Garth told about how it started as just the 1st and 3rd verses and he thought something was missing. He asked Tony to work on it, and when Tony came back with the 2nd verse added, he basically told Garth not to ask him to do any more with the song. When Garth heard the second verse and how haunting it is, he knew why! I always think of that when I listen to the song. It is that 2nd verse that gets you every single time.
