Work Like You Can lyrics

Nothing'll get lost if we work like we can
Til the smell of the earth is worn into our hands
And I promise you something you'll never get nowhere
If you only ask questions of love

Long ago people came to this town
To build their lives out of what they found
And now the town's a ruin and the dirt on the ground
Is mixed in with the ashes of love

Gather with others and work like you can
To live like you can

You can keep your mouth shut better than I can
Accept and obey every law in this land
And when the wind blows your wages right out of your hands
You'll accept that wind doesn't blow around love

Gather with others and work like you can
To live like you can

In spite of, in spite of
Money, position and power
All the important things
I'm told we should be dreaming of

The seasons are fixed with sun
Just like an old stone that'll never be thrown
Soon the spring will come
Like a distant object of love

And the spring tide and neap tide
Bring a rhythm to the land
With the oil on the saw we can work like we can
What you lack in ability you can gain pretty simply
Ignore the riches
The riches of love

Gather with others and work like you can
To live like you can
