Goin' Back

Album: Comes A Time (1978)
  • In a foreign land
    There were creatures at play
    Running hand in hand
    Leading nowhere to stay
    Driven to the mountains high
    They were sunken in the cities deep
    Livin' in my sleep.

    I feel like goin' back
    Back where there's nowhere to stay
    When fire fills the sky
    I'll still remember that day
    These rocks I'm climbin' down
    Have already left the ground
    Careening through space.

    I used to build these buildings
    I used to walk next to you
    Their shadows tore us apart
    And now we do what we do
    Driven to the mountains high
    Sunken in the cities deep
    Livin' in our sleep

    I feel like goin' back
    Back where there's nowhere to stay Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
