lyrics

You wanna live the dream
It’s never what it seems
Ten hours on the road
Another empty show

How many records sold?
How long before you’re old?
However low you go
You keep digging for the gold

But your mind is still waiting ’round
For some kind of desperate sound
That says you’re not wasting your whole life

Your heart is in it now
But someday
You’ll throw in the towel
And you’ll say
I gave my best try but numbers don’t lie

It’s too late to let go
But you just wanna explode
Your friends have all moved on
And you carry the load

You’re afraid that you’re wasting, wasting your whole life

Your heart is in it now
But someday
You’ll throw in the towel
Someday
You’ll move to any town
And someday
Your heart will let you down
Someday
You’ll hang up your pen
And long for back when
You gave your best try
but numbers don’t lie
