"Backbone" by Liam Kyle Cahill

Never let a wishbone grow where a backbone ought to be
Let all of your work be done with love

Well my name is Liam, I’m a young man
If you count the score by age
I work in the mines to bring home the bread
Yeah it’s an honest, hard earned wage

It’s funny how I never realized where I would end up in just
Five years time
Well that’s just proof that when you’re in your youth
You can confuse your truth with mine

I don’t know where I am going
For I barely know where I’ve been
But I will drink another shot of whiskey
Yeah it warms me from within
Very few of us deserve what we get
Or get what we deserve

Never let a wishbone grow where a backbone ought to be
Let all of your work be done with love

Never let a wishbone grow where a backbone ought to be
Let all of your work be done with love

The carpenter sold me his axe
The axe, it portrayed a hammer
Now rusty saw blades cut right to the core of what matters
And everything that matters most is miles and miles away
So I listen to that carpenter and take...
It day by day, by day by day, by day today
By day by day, by day by day, by day today, yeah
