lyrics

The cabinet maker's hands are strong and steady
His father's father's brother learned the trade
Although he wishes he could make sweet music,
there are mouths to feed and bills that must be paid

The day is long, the work, it never ends
He lives inside a dream that will haunt him to the end
And when the children sleep they hear music in the air
He must rest his tired mind. His hands show signs of wear

And when he lays his weary head to rest
there are colors in his nest

Tell me, do you shiver in the morning?
Tell me, do your hands hurt in the evening?
Someone else is living in your thoughts
Your dreams are not forgotten
They're just lost

I feel you, but I wandered on
I'm sorry I pulled the alarm

He washed his face and put his clothes away
He walks the house in endless misery
But the children know, when they hear music in the hall
they must listen close
It's the man who lost his heart

I know you will shiver from the start
You say it's just a warning
I know you suffer from a broken heart
You say it's just a warning
