lyrics

In the morning, when I wake up, I lay in bed with my guitar.
I write a new song, and play some old ones. I grab my gear, and load up the car.
‘Cause there’s a show tonight, and the band’s all ready,
to drive four hours, and play for two.
Five thousand dollars, worth of equipment,
one hundred miles, to get fifty bucks from you.

And you know It’s hard work, playing music.
It’s hard work, getting paid doing the things you love.
It’s hard work, playing music.
It’s hard work, that I’m dreamin’ of.

Butterflies, all in my belly. My palms are wet, my knees are weak.
‘Til I get up there, with my guitar, I know this feeling is what I seek.

And I know It’s hard work, playing music.
It’s hard work, getting paid doing the things you love.
It’s hard work, playing music.
It’s hard work, that I’m dreamin’ of.

I’m working Monday through Friday, doing the nine to five,
Keeping up my day job, trying to survive.
Until I hit the big time, vacations in the sand,
I’m working on the weekend, playing covers with my band

It’s not easy, but its fun. And it sure is pleasing, to please some one.
What I love most is, being closest to the sound that we’ve become.

And we know It’s hard work, playing music.
It’s hard work, getting paid doing the things you love.
It’s hard work, playing music.
It’s hard work, that I’m dreamin’ of. Yeah!

Oh, It’s hard work, playing music.
It’s hard work, getting paid doing the things you love.
It’s hard work, playing music.
And It’s hard work, that I’m dreamin’ of.
Yeah, It’s hard work, that I’m dreamin’ of.
