lyrics

You know you're finished when your bones are aching
You know it's over when your nerves can't take the strain
It's tough to stand up when your heart is breaking
It's hard to give up on the life you've known

A young man's body doesn't last forever
An old man's mind can't believe how time's flown past
It's not you've ever longed for something better
It's just you've never thought it'd get this far

Trudge the sodden fields
See what the maples yield
And count the sweetness in the pail
Before you reap the seeds
You still have mouths to feed
And hands to pay and so you hope for the sap to flow
With one last sugar snow

You know the soul and pain of every acre
The children don't because we left so long ago
The city promised we'd have something better
The city makes up bleed with what we owe

Trudge the sodden fields
See what the maples yield
And count the sweetness in the pail
Before you reap the seeds
You still have mouths to feed
And hands to pay and so you hope for the sap to flow
With one last sugar snow
