Lyrics: Rest Stop Song

It seems that nothing here has gone quite as planned 
Cause now I’m sitting here with my shoes filled with sand
And I eat these stale saltines 
And I second guess my dreams 

I knew this wouldn’t be like an easy bake 
Done in ten minutes and not that hard to make 
‘Cause I know if I want to do this right 
That I have to put up a fight 

Cause it’s getting harder every day 
With a mountain of bills to pay 
And the question of where the money’s coming from 
Now I’m facing these uncertainties 
When I’d rather be working for my dreams
‘Cause if you ask me if I’m scared 
I’ll say, “yeah” 

I’ve been playing everywhere I can 
In basements and bars 
I’ve been sleeping at these rest stops
Looking at the stars 
And I don’t think I’d change a thing 
If I’d still get to sing 

Cause it’s getting harder every day 
With a mountain of bills to pay 
And the question of where the money’s coming from 
Now I’m facing these uncertainties 
When I’d rather be working for my dreams 
And if you ask me if I’m scared 
I’ll say, “yeah” 

I don’t think I’m foolish at all 
A little selfish but that’s easy to call 
And I’d rather be working for what I believe 
Than something I could not conceive 

Cause it’s getting harder every day 
With a mountain of bills to pay 
And the question of where the money’s coming from 
Now I’m facing these uncertainties 
When I’d rather be working for my dreams 
And if you ask me if I’m scared 
I’ll say, “yeah”
