not over yet/paint box

Not over yet ( but it’s getting there)

 

I can see the darkness in your eyes

It tells me you’ve ran out of lies

Still a hint of sadness shines through

As I await for what your gonna do

It’s obvious were in disrepair

It’s not over yet but it’s getting there

Say mister can you tell me where it all goes

Fading away like a winters rose

Why do we always hold on

When we know it will soon be gone

Would it help to say a prayer

It’s not over yet but it’s getting there

Hey mama how do you always know

That love needs love to grow

And now you say I’ve done my best

You say like it’s all just a test

Well this ain’t no questionnaire

It’s not over yet but it’s getting there

Seems like I’m loosing my sense of humor

Ever since I heard the rumor

That she was on her way out the door

It’s just something I never planned for

And now I can’t pretend to be unaware

It’s not over yet but it’s getting there

My love as you sleep the night away

There’s something I must do and can’t delay

I can’t stand what I have to do

But deep in my heart I know we are through

And if I stay it will end up in an affair

It’s not over yet but it’s getting there

Paint box picture

 

Your wife and kids call you weak

For working 50 hours a week

But the choice is out of our hands

The boss is boss in this badlands

Everyone likes to do a decent job

how come you feel like you’ve been robbed

Protecting our children is our main care

But just how to do it when we ain’t there

I know you hear our fears

But all you do is remind us we’re in arrears

Money the new worlds king

And it’s us who take the sting

Chorus

We’re just numbers on a paint box picture

You only know us when you get richer

We slave away in a unfair society

Then you demand our sobriety

And you sit back and stare

As we live in despair

We all know god’s truth

But you deny it to the youth

Every election a promise is made

And when you win it’s us who’s betrayed

Round and round it goes

This ain’t the life we chose

When it comes to be judged one fine day

What lies will you use to delay

The truth that all but you can see

how will you explain poverty

The hungry need the food you throw away

But it’s like that every working day

Chorus

We’re just numbers on a paint box picture

You only know us when you get richer

We slave away in a unfair society

Then you demand our sobriety

And you sit back and stare

As we live in despair
