Song: Call It A Day

FAWM 2018

Album: FAWM 2018
Track: #11

Kind of a worker song I guess. I think over time I might be able to polish this one up if I can figure out what kind of work this guy is actually doing. :) Otherwise, it's just a song about the fight most of us are fighting -- spending time currency on a future that doesn't seem to want to come about.

I'm waiting for 
The fray to fall
Before I call it a day

There's no reason for
The freezin' cold
To keep me from callin it a day

Still it's a long way home through the icy night
And there's holes in both of my shoes
I'll keep on working til the warm dawn light
Tomorrow is gonna have to do

I'm waiting for 
The fray to fall
Before I call it a day

There's no reason for
A little shortfall
To keep me from callin it a day

But I told the boss I would get this done
And I'm a least four hours behind
I'll keep on working on and on and on
And one day his job'll be mine

I'm waiting for 
The fray to fall
Before I call it a day

There's no reason for
No protocol
To keep me from callin it a day

I just got it in my mind that there'd be a light
At the end of this tunnel I dug
But I'm starting to feel I'd've been more right
Swimming toward the bottom of a jug

I'm waiting for 
The fray to fall
Before I call it a day

I'm waiting for 
The fray to fall
Before I call it a day
