tobyMac – 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
Alway’s tryin’ to do what’s right
Straight and narrow, it’s gettin’ 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
If there’s one thing I know
There’s nowhere on this side o’ Heaven
Where streets are made o’ gold
I’ve long laid tell 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 part of a plan
And I can feel it in my soul
One day, I’ll stand before the throne
With nothin’ left but hope and these two hands

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

You’re my promised land
Ooh ooh ooh-ooh, ooh ooh ooh-ooh
My promised land
Ooh ooh ooh-ooh, ooh ooh ooh-ooh
Ah ah
Ooh ooh-ooh, ooh ooh ooh-ooh
Oh oh-oh, oh oh-oh
Ooh ooh-ooh
You’re my promised land
