THE LAND OF BEGINNING-AGAIN

When you come to the the "Land Of Beginning Again",
they check out your baggage before you check in.
You can't come with old photos of bad memories.
You can't bring your pills or your booze, just your keys.
You must give them your real name, and prove who you are,
take a look in the mirror, and pass by the bar.

You may feel like a stranger on some unknown shore.
Or feel like you've wandered through the wrong door.
You may think you're the same, and mutter your name -
but as you get nearer - that face in the mirror,
you must look in the eyes with no shame.

Chorus
"The Land Of Beginning-Again",
sometimes it's hard to get in.
They don't make reservations,
if you feel hesitation.
You may feel like a Babe in old skin,
but that's what you need to get in,
"The Land Of Beginning-Again".

You'll find some friends - you knew long ago,
who got lost in the years, somewhere you don't know,
and you've wondered so long where they've been.
You may be surprised to find old enemies,
smiling at you, as if they were pleased,
to meet you there in - "The Land Of Beginning Again".

As you wander around greeting friends you have missed,
and some folks you'd even crossed off of your list.
Your vision will grow , stretching your soul.
Your heart will recall - the best of it all,
and your mind will refine it like gold.

Chorus
"The Land Of Beginning-Again",
sometimes it's hard to get in.
They don't make reservations,
if you feel hesitation.
You may feel like a Babe in old skin,
but that's what you need to get in,
"The Land Of Beginning-Again".
