Workin’ overtime for minimum wage
Long nights, even longer days
Kinda’ lost so it’s kinda’ strange
It felt so right in Coeur d’Alene

Morning sun streaming through your hair
Feeling lucky to be layin’ there
Pockets empty except for a prayer
Two steps into a thousand yard stare

I’ve been searching high and low
For what I still don’t know
Never mind how much I’ve changed
Or how good things are today
It’s still not Coeur d’Alene

Light a candle burn one down
Take a hit, hit the ground
All the ways I’ve never found
To fill a hole the size of that town
