You don't like Country?

Try this on for size :

Garth Brooks - The River

You know a dream is like a river,
ever changing as it flows
And the dreamer's just a vessel that must follow where it goes
Trying to learn from what's behind you
Never knowing what's in store
Makes each day a constant battle
Just to stay between the shores

Too many times we stand beside
Let the water slip away
Till what we put off till tomorrow
has now become today
so don't you sit upon the shoreline
and say you're satisfied
Choose to chance the rapids
Dare to dance the tide

The Dance is my favorite Garth Brooks song. I'm not really into country though.

If I could talk to you
And only speak the truth

We are so happy
happy to see

no, not one single country artist has EVER written their own song. you are correct. /sarcasm just in case you didn't catch it.

edit~ it doesn't change the fact that someone wrote them. and it's not just in the writing of the song, it's the delivery.
