By request, the lyrics to my almost 30 year old tune Seamless Life

My grandfather
That’s my mamma’s daddy
Sailed the ocean
Selling whiskey and rum
He come all the way from Puerto Rico
Through the French West Indies
To the shores of Georgia
With his liquid gold

What I wouldn’t give to live that life
But here I’ve got my nine to five
Day in, day out
With no rough edges
No loose ties
Living the seamless life

Every morning
When I’m in my mirror
It shows my wrinkles
Shows my gray
I could break it in a thousand pieces
And feel good about it
For just a moment
Then it goes away

Someone has to sweep the shattered glass
And when I pick the pieces up
The floor and I have
No rough edges
No loose ties
Living the seamless life

Sometimes, we live so hard
Sometimes we just live

My big brother
Got a real nice family
Real big house
Real nice car
His doctor tells him that his biggest problem
He drinks too much coffee
Stays up way
Too late at night

Here’s a man with everything in life
But sometimes when we’re talking I can
Hear him burning
With no rough edges
No loose ties
Living the seamless life
