this is sort of a w 48 / 49 combo song as i was going over my aus trip journal, five months of freedom.

wave goodbye

profits lost on purchase cost
happens everyday
net a gain, secure a claim
know someone has to pay

spend your time, to make a dime
your time it is for sale
i want it back, or i will pack
my bag and set my sail

back on track but on the rack
this isn't any fun
i'm at a loss, don't need a boss
it's looking like we're done

with nothing in our hands
we wave goodbye
with a sunrise
the sun set
on us
and we rode the wave

with nothing in our hands
we wave goodbye
with a sunrise
the sun set
on us
and we sail away

where we'll be is hard to see
our sails blew apart
blowing leaves and leaving blows
weight upon our heart

we'll meet again when the weather vane
points us back to here
you and me will never be
farther than we're near

with nothing in our hands
we wave goodbye
with a sunrise
the sun set
on us
and we rode the wave

with nothing in our hands
we wave goodbye
with a sunrise
the sun set
on us
and we sail away

Hi Marty,

This is a tough one for me, you've got some really nice lines in there but I'm having a little trouble buying in to it as a whole. I'm trying to figure out why that is. I think it's that I don't know whether you're singing about having a break, or the drudgery of our daily lives. I know it's about both but I would be inclined to focus more attention on one over the other, by all means include both concepts but don't give them equal weight. Anyway just my opinion, there's certainly a valid song here well done.

Here is to you as good as you are
And here is to me as bad as I am
As good as you are and as bad as I am
I'm as good as you are as bad as I am
