Promised Land

from Campfire Songs by Richard Turgeon

/

lyrics

Oh in time, you will see
that you will come back to me
Not surprised, that you’re leaving here again

“Better days, down the road”
That’s what you say when we’re alone
But I don’t know if I can follow you back home

I’ve always wondered who you are
Head in the clouds, eyes on the stars
You ask if I can see, I’ve told you that I can

Will you wake me when we reach the promised land
Will you wake me when we reach the promised land

It’s been so long with you gone
Different notes but same old song
Testing me, and how much more that I can take

Pulled apart, I drift away
Wondering if I should stay
Asking me if I can wait for one more day

I’ve always wondered who you are
Head in the clouds, eyes on the stars
You ask if I can see, I’ve told you that I can

Will you wake me when we reach the promised land
