lyrics

When you’re all taxed out
When your heart aches
When your call’s maxed out
When your start breaks

Cut to the middle of the chase
Where deepest doubts do lay
Then take a flame to your fiddle
C’mon, spark your own light
Find a way

When you’re all cracked up
When your worth shakes
When that wall comes up
When the earth quakes

Cut to the middle of the chase
Where toil and troubles weigh
Then take a flame to your fiddle
C’mon, spark your own light
Find a way

When your sun won’t shine
When the woe wakes
When you’re walking blind
When the toll takes

Cut to the middle of the chase
Where all them shadows play
Then take a flame to your fiddle
C’mon, spark your own light
Find a way
