The Trade Lyrics
I'm on a roll, out of control
another one-night stand
I can't get away 'cause I'm on display
but I can't see you, man

smile for the cameras, smile for the fans
sign their records and shake their hands
try to stay healthy, try to get laid
make it to the show, that's the trade

that's the trade
that's the trade

I sleep all day on the freeway
on the bus between each gig
I'm making my living singing my songs
doing my thing, dig

I had a dream, so I made some plans
things have a way of working out
I found a few people and formed a band
taught myself how to shout

smile for the cameras, smile for the fans
sign their records and shake their hands
try to stay healthy, try to get laid
make it to the show, that's the trade

that's the trade
that's the trade

write down stuff you feel strongly about
others may feel the same
before you know it, you might be a big star
and everyone will know your name

when you learn the trade
and you're on display
you can't get away
everyone knows that name
everyone knows our name
everyone knows my name
