Back Where I Began

This song is by A.J. Croce and appears on the album A.J. Croce (1993).

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
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
