Leavin' The Land of The Broken Hearted

Album: Spirit Dancer (2002)
  • I see my mom and dad's wedding picture hanging in the hall
    That picture of happiness tries to sell it but it doesn't tell it all
    It's been 22 years since they walked down the aisle
    Now they seldom talk and I never see I'm smile
    They're living their lives in the land of the brokenhearted

    My old man gave me a job right out of high school
    Just like his old man did
    It's a dead-end street of barely making ends meet
    That I just can't live with
    Now we can hang around here and wind up the same
    Or kick it in gear girl and outrun the pain

    We're leaving the land of the brokenhearted
    Lettin' our motors run
    The sea of tears has finally parted
    Baby our time has come
    We're getting out now while we still have forever
    For you and me girl, it's now or never
    We're leaving the land of the brokenhearted

    It's a lottery ticket chance of getting out and I never met a winner
    No nothing ever changes around here but the weather
    and what they had for dinner
    It's a chain of broken dreams and we were born to break it
    That bitter pill they're dealing, we're not gonna take it

    We're leaving the land of the brokenhearted
    Lettin' our motors run
    The sea of tears has finally parted
    Baby our time has come
    We're getting out now while we still have forever
    For you and me girl, it's now or never
    We're leaving the land of the brokenhearted

    We're leaving the land of the brokenhearted
    Baby we're leaving, just you and me
    Yeah we're leaving the land
    Leaving the land
    Leaving the land of the brokenhearted
    Leaving the land, leaving the land
    Leaving the land of the broken, brokenhearted Writer/s: CHARLES DAVID ROBBINS, HENRY PAUL, LEE THOMAS MILLER
