"Working Man" as written by and Kurt Nilsen....
You see, I need to get out of this place
As you see, I can't get no more space
There's nothing that I'd rather do
Than spend all my time with you

Well, I've been working seven days a week
Coming home late, then going to sleep
Soon as I close my eyes and slip away
It's up and then off again

But see I do it for the both of us
I saw that you were trying too
Oh, look, there's that open space
That we've been waiting for so long
But somehow it just feels so wrong

So I'll go back to what I know best
Hard time working at the factory here
Shoveling my way through all these days
Until I see you again

You see, I can't get to where I wanna go
Blinded by the hours when I stamp in
Hoping that the pay is better than the last I got
Every day's a brand new start

But see I do it for the both of us
I saw that you were trying too
Oh, look, there's that open space
That we've been waiting for so long
But somehow it just feels so wrong

This is my life, I know that well
I'll be sitting stuck 'til the day I die
Somehow I'll always smile because I know
That you are on my side

But see I do it for the both of us
I saw that you were trying too
Oh, look, there's that open space
That we've been waiting for so long
But somehow it just feels so wrong
