Hold Your Breath
(by Connor Garvey)

Darlin’ you know the money is thin
like leaves of a tree when the winter moves in
Darlin’ I don’t expect too much soon
a tree with no roots ain’t expecting a bloom

But if we just hold our breaths a minute more then we will know what the wait is for
Just hold our breaths a minute more...then we will know

I’ve just received government help
this searching for work isn’t filling the shelves
But this ain’t all I am lord knows I am trying I’m not slowly dying, I hope you can tell


Word heard in passing is there’s work on the road it may fade quick so babe I must go
I’ll call you soon from a gas station pay-phone I’m hoping by then I’ll know when I’ll be home
We need to believe We need to believe
