lyrics

Some men keep their treasure hid in faraway lands
Lands I've never seen
Some men keep their treasure in the books that they read
Though they never know what they mean
But I've got some treasure that I keep with me
I treasure it every day
It hides in the notes and the melodies
Of the music that I play

Simple truths are not for everyone
But I've got a bone to pick with the skeletons in my closet

The richest man I ever knew never worked a day
He barely had a dime
But he'd surround himself with music and with all of his friends
Played the guitar every night
I wonder what's the use of all this stuff I got
I can't keep it when I die
I've squirreled away some money to live comfortably
But it can never buy me time

I love art, but I hate suffering for it
So I'm a pot set on slow-boil, balancing my work and my toil

I guess that I'm a poor man, 'cause my treasure is scarce
I toil to earn my pay
Because happiness is wrapped up in a few other things
That I didn't list today
I earn my treasure with the sweat of my brow
So I don't have it for very long
But I've got some treasure that I'll share with you
Right here in this song
