Good Day's Work

Listen here:

Whatever I drag out of that river

I believe it’s a good day’s work

The only words I’ve said today are "yes ma’am" and "yes sir"

But I believe I was cut from a different kind of stone

And the troubles I make are my own

My heart is not weary

My throat is not dry

I’d walk to the end of the world just to wave goodbye

To these dreams that have passed before my eyes

Whatever I pull out of that dirt

I believe it was there all the time

And if I don’t find it today

I’ll leave it for someone else to find

But the days go fast

And I try to be true

And maybe that’s all that any of us can do

From La Bestia Demos, released April 26, 2019
