A Day Job and a Dream


PLAY -



© 2007 Music and Lyrics by David Kraut

A DAY JOB AND A DREAM
She doesn?t tell the boss where she goes,
After work when the office is closed,
She tries to keep the secret to herself.
She spends weeknights in crowded bars,
At open mics, strumming her guitar,
And she plays, a small stage, for spare change,
And the strain is showing.
But she sings, ?cause two things are keeping,
Her spirit going.
CHORUS
She?s got a day job and a dream,
That?s how she survives,
Trying to live a different life,
With a pocketful of faith,
That someday she?ll succeed,
Until then she?s stuck between a day job and a dream.
She?s been a temp for seven years,
It pays the rent but it?s no career,
She knows there are other lives to lead.
She could give it up and get her degree,
Or find love and raise a family,
And someday, she may awake,
With a different passion.
But ?til then, she?ll spend every second,
Making this one happen.
REPEAT CHORUS

The race is long, it?s a marathon,
Most will drop out before she does.
But she carries on, keeps running strong, all because ?
FINAL CHORUS
She has a day job and a dream,
That?s how she survives,
Trying to live a different life,
With a pocketful of faith,
That someday she?ll succeed,
Until then she will believe,
She can make the final leap,
From her day job to her dream.
