Every mornin' heading to the mines
Breathin' in that devil's dust
Puttin' in all your time doing what you must
So the bills don't fall behind
You didn't need any help then
And you won't be needing any now
You got a load on your back
Chain around your heart and a pride tearing us apart

Sometimes I wonder
Where are the dreams we dreamt of
Where are the things we wanted
And the time that we lost to put it back together

All the nights I waited for you to come home
And when you do we'd cuss and fuss
It 'aint that I don't love you
It's cos it's too much and I couldn't tell you enough
But we made it through all these years
What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger
And baby I know nothings really changed
only now we're a little older

Sometimes I wonder
Where are the dreams we dreamt of
Where are the things we wanted
And the time that we lost to put it back together
Put it back together

Every day you come home a little more tired
I hear you coughin' all through the night
I wait another year until you retire
When the doc says you're not alright
You didn't need any help then
Surely you'll be needing plenty now
You got a load on your back
A tear around your heart and a pride tearing us apart

Sometimes I wonder
Where are the dreams we dreamt of
And all the things we wanted
And the time that we lost to put it back together
And the time that we lost to put it back together
Put it back together
