LIVING IN OZ (live)              
(words and music by Rick Springfield)    

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

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