Just One Job

If I could have just one job to fill me with grace


It would be the power to put emotion into ones face


It would be terror in silence


heart breats in heart attacks


it would be the knowledge of knowing I wont ever be last


cause when you're an artist


and paints the only thing you have


you'll know the old brushes are like platinum


and moneys just sand


So if I could have just one job


I swear it would be true


that I would be an artist


not for me but for you


cause a paint brush is like a flashlight


exposing whats hiding in darkness


and if I speak the truth


then you'll know the darkest


but if I try I know I wont be down for too long


I know I'll be strong


I'll prosper in riches of color


make my dollars


not collars


break even and see that theres nothing coming between me and my dream.


So if I could have just one job


Im sure it would be


true to myself


and true to my dreams


I would be an artist


my life wont always be as it seems.
