Dear Bradenton
You have been good to me
You've kept your word
And got me through these years

And all I ask
Is that you'll be there
When I return

From Anna's isle to
Lakewood's fields

This is our town
This is who we're meant to be
This is our town
Where our roots have grown so deep
This is our town
This is where we're meant to be
This is our town
We'll keep coming back because...

To share arms
In what we have learned
For so long these streets were my home

Dear Bradenton
As the city sleeps the night
You found us hiding out
Under parking garage lights
And you know
You know you'll find us here
When we return

This is our town
This is our town
This is our town
(What are we running for?)
This is our town
(What are we running for?)
This is our town
(This is our town)

Dear Bradenton
As I gently close my eyes
I hear you whisper softly
As we continue our goodbyes
And all I ask
Is that you'll be there
When I return...

    This song is about their hometown, Bradenton Florida. I know because I live there. : P
    They make refrences to Anna Maria Island and such. They just want a place to go home to when they're all famous and hope that Bradenton is the same when they get back and that people will treat them the same.

    I think it means that where you grow up actually shapes who your supposed to be, and even though sometimes you hate it, you are who you are because of it and that place is yours and everyone else who grew up there and you'll have to go back when you lose yourself so you can fid who you are once again.

    This is about their hometown. It's their getaway when they are all wrapped up in their work and the music industry. They hope that they can go back to Bradenton whenever and hope it never changes for them.

    For me, there no "hidden" or figurative meaning to this song. Travis and the band wrote this song to remember/honor their hometown which is brandenton florida. They started there, became popular throughout the world but in the end it's where they belong.
