lyrics

Lately I’ve been cut down by this weakness
Like the world set my mind on fire
Everything I reach for, everything I love just burns the same
Nothing I could do but run away

So I went on the road to find myself
Left behind everything that meant something
Sharp faces caught hold of the dark places in my mind/soul
Til this old man turned to me and said

Young man you got it all wrong
Can’t keep living like the world can’t see you
Just give it up, give into who you really are
Maybe you’ll find what you’re looking for

Give you the love that you need so bad
Bring back this confidence you’ve shaken
Fill you up, with everything that you once had
Let your soul and spirit fly to the promised land

So I found my way back home
Sun drenched skin, and my aching bones
All of my life, all of my right to be free
Won’t be broken by the the worst in me

Maybe it’s all coming down
Maybe I’m not that strong
But what I’ve found is I close my eyes and I can see
Everything, everything that sets me free

Young man you got it all wrong
Can’t keep living like the world can’t see you
Just give it up, give into who you really are
Maybe you’ll find what you’re looking for in the Promise Land
