Making a Life

Waitress in a pink dress
Works before the sun's up
Barely pays the rent
Pouring coffee into coffee cups
To wake the truck drivers up
Then out on the interstate
He's out in a traffic grind
Got to keep the rig safe
Cause he's got a family to keep in mind
And man that's the bottom line

Getting by making the ends meet
Do what it takes to stay on their feet
Not gonna give up, not gonna give in
Making a life, not just a living
Making a life, not just a living

In an office building downtown
He's wearing a suit and tie
He could make more money
If he wasn't such an honest guy
But some things money can't buy
In a flower shop downstairs
She'll close it up early today
She might lose some business
But there's no price she wouldn't pay
To see her daughter's part in the play

Chorus

And the flowers on the dashboard
Are hangin' low
Life's burning like a flashbulb
But dying slow - dying slow

Chorus
