"Promised Land" as written by and Lisa/deluna Enterline....
I'm sure not feelin' tough
Sure not feeling tall
Sure that you are not feeling me at all
You know I could be right sure that I'm not wrong
But I'm sure that time was meant for more than just getting along
So let's not just get along
Let's get along in style
'Cause you know I'm pretty sure this is more worthwhile
So I think it's time we gave this thing the hard sell
'Cause love was meant to live
And not merely just to dwell
No just to dwell

So tonight I want to be that line
The one that I just sold out
Tonight I want to be that story
The one that I just told you
Let's take it to the land of fantasy
Where all things are real
Where the enemy's not a ghost
But one you can touch and feel
And the chains they are not mental
But their only made of steel
And the magic's elemental and the right words can heal
Let's become that dignity
Become that grace
It's time to light your candles in a dark and lonely place

    Lyric CorrectionThese lyrics are missing half the song and are wrong in parts. Correct lyrics as follows:

    Come back sister now as fast as you can
    well you know that I’m not as bad as they say I am
    No fiend or foul, just the name of the game
    well they all left just the way they came

    Well I'm sure not feelin' tough
    and I'm sure not feelin' tall
    well I'm sure that you are not feelin'g me at all
    you know I could be right 'cos I'm not sure that I am wrong
    but I thought that time was meant for more than just getting along
    so lets not just get along now
    lets get along in style
    'cos' you know that I’m pretty sure that this is more worthwhile
    I think it's time we gave this thing the hard-sell
    'cos love was meant to live and not mearly just to dwell
    not just to dwell

    I wanna hold your hand
    start workin' on our promised land
    well I dont think you understand
    but it's time we did some
    work on our promised land

    Well tonight I wanna be that line
    yeah the one that I just told you
    and tonight I wanna be that story
    yeah the one that I just sold you
    let’s take it to the land of fantasy where all things are real
    the enemies are not a ghost
    but one you can touch and feel
    no the chains they are not metal
    no there only made of steel
    where the magic's elemental and the right words can heal
    lets become that dignity
    become that grace
    it's time to light your candle in a dark and lonely place

    Well in a dark and lonely place

    Well I’m not sure if you understand
    but this time we did some
    work on our promised land

    I wanna hold your hand
    start workin' on our promised land
    well I don’t think you understand
    but it’s time we did some
    work on our promised land

    Come back sister now as fast as you can
    well you know that I’m not as bad as they say I am
    No fiend or foul, just the name of the game
    well they all left just the way they came

    I wanna hold your hand
    start workin' on our promised land
    well I don’t think you understand
    but it’s time we did some
    work on our promised land

    I wanna hold your hand
    start workin' on our promised land
    well I'm not sure you understand
    but it’s time we did some
    work on our promised land
