Promised Land Lyrics

Head down as I punch this clock
The hours roll they never stop
And I can’t ever seem to get ahead

Always tryin’ to do what’s right
The straight and narrows getting tight
Don’t know how much longer I can stand

And I’m wonderin’ yeah I’m wonderin’ where’s my promised land

Out here on this desert road
It’s hot as fire but I’ve grown cold
Circlin’ like a plane that never lands

And even though the questions change
The answers always stay the same
Maybe someday I will understand

So I’m wonderin’, got me wonderin where’s my promised land
Yeah I’m wonderin’ still I’m wonderin where’s my promised land

Well I’ve run this earth for many years
And there’s one thing I know
There’s nowhere on this side of heaven
Where streets are made of gold

I’ve long laid down my grand illusions
Lookin toward the day that I’ll be home

I won’t give up on this race
Broken but I still have faith
That this old life is all part of a plan

And I can feel it in my soul, one day I’ll stand before the throne
With nothing left but hope in these 2 hands

Through all these seasons, I’m still believing,
You’re my promised land
In all my grievin’
I’m still believin’,
You’re my promised land.
