play Waiting On A Break

from Chasing Beauty

Six o'clock the alarm starts ringing
Brings me out of a dream
I stumble down to car
Scrape the ice
till the window's clean

I'm waiting on a break
Chasing down a long tomorrow
Waiting on a break
Soon

Eight o'clock
hit the shop
Turn the lock
Turn the heat on
People come and buy
Their hammers
Buy their nails
To build a dream on

I'm waiting on a break
Chasing down a long tomorrow
Waiting on a break
Soon

The crowd calls us out
A thousand voices shout
The band will kick it out
Till the dream is over

When I come of the stage
They'll have to carry me away
On a fanfare parade
Till the dream is over

Six o'clock 
Close the shop
Punch the clock 
Turn the lights down low
Six string waiting in the corner
Plug it in, let it go

I'm waiting on a break
Chasing down a long tomorrow
Waiting on a break
Soon
 
(Chorus)

It's ten o'clock
It's sound check
At The Whiskey
The stage smells
like cigarettes and beer
The waitress gives a wave
While the boys begin to play
And it's our town
Four hours
Till we close it down

(Chorus)
