A.J. Croce – Back Where I Began lyrics

Two steps back, one step ahead
What's bad for the living is worse for the dead
Oh child, Oh child
I'm closer to the promised land, but I am back where I began
Spent all my money with nothing to show
With all that I've learned there's so little I know
Oh child, Oh child
I'm closer to that promised land, but I'm back where I began
[Chorus:]
You said you need somebody
But that ain't nothing new
You said you need somebody
That needs somebody too
I look in the mirror, it's a cryin' shame
I look so much older, but I feel just the same
Oh child, Oh child

I'm closer to the promised land but back where I began
Lying on the bathroom floor, praying to the Lord
I swear I'll never drink another drink, if this is my reward
Oh child, Oh child
I'm closer to that promised land, but I'm back where I began
You said you need somebody
But that ain't nothing new
You said you need somebody
That needs somebody too
Lying on the bathroom floor, praying to the Lord
I swear I'll never drink another drink, if this is my reward
Oh child, Oh child
I'm closer to that promised land, but I'm back where I began
