Neil Young - Goin' Back Lyrics




In a foreign land
There were creatures at play
Running hand in hand
Needing no where to stay
Driven to the mountains high
They were sunken
in the cities deep
Livin' in my sleep.

I feel like goin' back
Back where
there's nowhere to stay
When fire filled the sky
I'll still remember that day
These rocks I'm climbin' down
Have already left the ground
Careening through space.

I used to build these buildings
I used to walk next to you
Their shadows tore us apart
And now we do what we do
Driven to the mountains high
Sunken in the cities deep
Livin' in our sleep.

I feel like goin' back
Back where
there's nowhere to stay.

    Lyrics

    In a foreign land
    There were creatures at play
    Running hand in hand
    Needing no where to stay
    Driven to the mountains high
    They were sunken
    in the cities deep
    Livin' in my sleep.

    I feel like goin' back
    Back where
    there's nowhere to stay
    When fire filled the sky
    I'll still remember that day
    These rocks I'm climbin' down
    Have already left the ground
    Careening through space.

    I used to build these buildings
    I used to walk next to you
    Their shadows tore us apart
    And now we do what we do
    Driven to the mountains high
    Sunken in the cities deep
    Livin' in our sleep.

    I feel like goin' back
    Back where
    there's nowhere to stay.

    This song brings me to tears. It touches my soul like no other.

    John Crowe

    I have a VHS tape of Neil's movie when he was with devo. And there was a cutaway , and he was in a field somewhere and they played this song. Oh yeah , the movie is Human Highway.

    The one downvote was by a Trumpee. Also known as a Right-Wing-Authoritarian-Follower in psychology. They grade them by what's known as the RWA scale, an improved version of the F (fascist) scale developed after WWII.

    Richard Siciliano

    Trump is a huge Neil fan. Now get back to your safe space before it gets dark.

    Richard Siciliano

    Neil's also played at Trump's casinos. And he tried to get Trump to finance his Pono project. That was before Orange Man was labeled the Devil.

  15. Hoi Polloi

    Great song, great album, great artist..... Saw Neil in 1981. Great experience.

  16. janloudia

    Love love love this album.

  17. DL Reed

    Neil Young exemplifies my true existence with every song in this, my favorite album. God knows I wish I could go back. Back to a time when life was so much easier than these troubled times. I miss those days.

    LJ W

    DL Reed yes for sure. I loved these Neil Young albums. Yes this world is so far away from the truth, so far from simplicity. Loved him then loved him still.

    JJ Gates

    Me, too....

  18. Erek Anderson

    reminds me of the Native Americans and their way of life. that is before they were wiped out by the united states government. the Native Americans were the true bearers of this land, no one else
