Lyrics - Land of the Living

Land of the Living
(written by Billy Cioffi and Walter Egan, from 1999's Walternative)

Whatever happened to the dreams I used to keep?
Those crazy precious moments now so bittersweet
Once I convinced myself I really knew it all
Way up on my high horse just ridiní for the fall

I used to feel so different
I used to feel immune

Back to the land of the living
Iíve been away for awhile
Iím couldnít see what was in me
The father or the child
Iím gonna need some forgiving
Iím asking for a new trial
Back in the land of the living
No denial

However many roads I wandered down alone
Somehow I never seemed to find my way back home
Too many solitary nights surrounded me

Until I felt I so different
Until I felt in tune

Back to the land of the living
Iíve been away for awhile
Iím couldnít see what was in me
The father or the child
Iím gonna need some forgiving
Iím asking for a new trial
Back in the land of the living
No denial

Now I stand at your door, my heart in my throat
Trying so hard to find the words I never spoke
And I wonít feel like Iím home Ďtil
Iím in your arms again

Back to the land of the living
Iíve been away for awhile
Iím couldnít see what was in me
The father or the child
Iím gonna need some forgiving
Iím asking for a new trial
Back in the land of the living
No denial
Back in the land of the living
No denial



I am nearly certain that I have correctly transcribed these lyrics. I listen to each song many times and write down what I hear but there are often lines that I struggle to understand. If you see a mistake and know the correct lyric, please feel free to email me. ( nowsoundsmusic97@yahoo.com)
