Horizon Unbounded


9. Last One to Leave

 Play Clip

Backing out the driveway in the darkness.
Thermos of coffee, hardhat never cleaned.
Callouses from pulling on a pipe wrench.
Sweating solder onto copper in a silver stream.

1st Chorus
Working because
The job does make a difference.
Last one to leave from the site.
Returning to his family late at night.

Backing out the driveway in the darkness.
Seat stacked with hardhats, one with store bought sheen.
Blisters break from pulling on a pipe wrench.
Plumberís son escaping to pursue a college dream.

2nd Chorus
Working because
The job does make a difference.
Last ones to leave from the site.
Returning to their family late at night.

Backing out the driveway in the darkness.
Coffee and briefcase bulging at the seam.
Callouses from pencil put to paper.
Crafting words precisely on a laptop silver screen.

3rd Chorus
Working because
The job does make a difference.
Last one to turn out the light.
Returning to his family late at night.

Working because
