Album: The Breaker (2017)

  • Magnavox in the living room
    CBS and NBC
    Clothesline tent in the back yard
    Hockey game playin' in the street

    Deck of cards in the kitchen
    Cool breeze from our screen door
    Grandma readin' love letters
    Grandpa wrote her in the war

    Free
    All those memories
    Free
    Didn't cost us anything

    All the shiny cars, perfect yards
    Chasin' store bought dreams
    We work so hard to have it all
    When all the things we want are free

    Got your accent from your hometown
    Sense of humor from your dad
    Get your green eyes from your mother
    God knows you can't buy that

    They'll charge you for your 6-pack
    But your friends are always there
    A few extra bucks in the offering plate
    Even though you can't buy a prayer

    Free
    All those memories
    Free
    Didn't cost us anything

    All the shiny cars, perfect yards
    Chasin' store bought dreams
    We work so hard to have it all
    When all the things we want are free

    Free
    All those memories
    Free
    Didn't cost us anything

    All the shiny cars, perfect yards
    Chasin' store bought dreams
    We work so hard to have it all
    When all the things we want are free
