Rick Springfield - Living In Oz Lyrics




Ever since I was a kid
I remember having dreams of grandeur
I was gonna be someone, I know what I want

Everybody played second best
And I held you back just like all the rest
I think I got what I want

Everybody's got to fight their demons
And you know I had to fight mine, too
It took a lot out of me, it took a lot out of you

To be Living In Oz, Living In Oz
Sometimes the dream can wake you
Living In Oz, Living In Oz
Sometimes the dream can shock you, too

All the money that I spend on you
Doesn't mean a thing if the love's not true
Baby please, I'll get what you want

Can't you tell me you and me ain't lost
I know what I did, I know what it cost
Now I'm yours and I've got what you want

All the fightin' will have been for nothin'
If at the end I can't have you
I'll throw it all away if that's what you want me to do

Living In Oz, Living In Oz
Sometimes the dream can wake you
Living In Oz, Living In Oz
Sometimes the dream can shake you, too

Funny how desire can burn you up inside
And make you commit emotional suicide
Everybody's got the desire to leave their mark
Some just do it over a trail of broken hearts

And all the people that protect and serve
Would disappear if the well dried up
I'm thirsty for affection
Let me drink from your loving cup

Living In Oz, Living In Oz
Sometimes the dream can shock you
Living In Oz, Living In Oz
Sometimes the dream can rock you
Living In Oz, Living In Oz
Sometimes the dream can shake you
Living In Oz, Living In Oz
Sometimes the dream can wake you, too

  6. John Dewar

    Agree, best album of his. Still great today.

  7. Borderblade

    Great song, but that production saps all the energy out of it.

  8. Keith Mackenzie

    A brilliant single and brilliant album.  I first bought this album (on cassette) in 1983 and thought it was great then, and still think the same now in 2017!

    Michelle Pereira

    Keith Mackenzie Me too!

    amanda davis

    This is one of his best songs and it wasn't even a single.

  9. Brian Barnhouse

    Great song, and One of the best albums of ALL time!!! What alternate universe are the 3 "thumbs down" people living in?!!!

    Alan Rizkallah

    The universe where the only song he ever recorded was Jessie's Girl.

    Brian Barnhouse

    No kidding. I'm constantly telling people that he has 50 songs that are just as good (if not better), too. :-)

  16. Simizu Hiroyuki

    たまらんですな。この頃のトンがったリックのサウンド!イントロのギターにはじまり、ドライブ感全開でシャウトしまくり、またまたギターソロがキレキレで走り、エンドに向かう・・・名曲です。

  17. 高津幸三

    ギターの音色がいいですよね。燃える闘魂になります。ありがとうございました。

  18. 高津幸三
