Blackhawk — Leavin' The Land Of The Broken Hearted lyrics

(Paul/Robbins/Miller)

I see my mom and dad抯 wedding picture hanging in the hall
That picture of happiness tries to sell it but it doesn抰 tell it all
It抯 been 22 years since they walked down the aisle
Now they seldom talk and I never see 慹m smile
They抮e living their lives in the land of the brokenhearted

My old man gave me a job right out of high school
Just like his old man did
It抯 a dead-end street of barely making ends meet
That I just can抰 live with
Now we can hang around here and wind up the same
Or kick it in gear girl and outrun the pain

We抮e leaving the land of the brokenhearted
Lettinour motors run
The sea of tears has finally parted
Baby our time has come
We抮e getting out now while we still have forever
For you and me girl, it抯 now or never
We抮e leaving the land of the brokenhearted

It抯 a lottery ticket chance of getting out and I never met a winner
No nothing ever changes around here but the weather
And what they had for dinner
It抯 a chain of broken dreams and we were born to break it
That bitter pill they抮e dealing, we抮e not gonna take it

We抮e leaving the land of the brokenhearted
Lettinour motors run
The sea of tears has finally parted
Baby our time has come
We抮e getting out now while we still have forever
For you and me girl, it抯 now or never
We抮e leaving the land of the brokenhearted

We抮e leaving the land of the brokenhearted
Baby we抮e leaving, just you and me
Yeah we抮e leaving the land
Leaving the land
Leaving the land of the brokenhearted
Leaving the land, leaving the land
Leaving the land of the broken, brokenhearted
