Country boy Aaron Lewis proves country comes from your heart, not your previous job. With the release of Town Line, Lewis silenced all the doubters and left their ears ringing with his classic, small town sound. In “The Story Never Ends,” Lewis find the best part about life on the road: coming home.
Armed with just his guitar, his story, and his famously pained voice, Aaron Lewis paints a beautiful picture of returning to his hometown after a long and tiring spell on the road. It’s the opposite of a road song, it’s a coming home song. Unfortunately, the road never ends, and just as he gets comfortable being back in the environment he knows, with the people he trusts and loves, Lewis has to head back out on the road again. But fortunately, Lewis knows he’ll come back home again.
Another two months on the road/ Just two more miles and I’ll be home to what I know/Where things move a little slower and people always wave goodbye and say hello/ And the maples on this road, they must be 300 years-old/ Just imagine all the stories they could tell/ Of the tractors and the cars/ All coming home from bar/ And the country folk just out to raise some hell/ Raise some hell.
It’s the blessing and the curse of being an in-demand country star, “the next thing that you know, it’s time to play another show,” and Lewis has to hit the road again. This summer won’t find Aaron Lewis at home for long, as he’s on tour now through August. Maybe this fall he’ll find some time to spend at home. In the mean time, he’ll have this song, and so can you.
