You Get What You Earn

This song is by Elin Sigvardsson and appears on the album Saturday Light Naive (2003).

Curtain's down, martini's dry.
I've come to lift you up somehow,
You've spent too many years in this damn town.

Years to come and years to go,
You'll get none, though it's your show.
You've put too many steps on the same ground

You've had your time.
You've had your turn.
You've had your share.
I don't mean to be unfair, but you've got to learn.
You only get what you earn

Never heard what your head said.
Painted blue, though your thoughts were red.
You're still way too tired for your own bed.

What's wrong with your appetite,
Are you feeling way too full to even have a bite?
How can you see yourself clear, you're out of sight.

You've had your time.
You've had your turn.
You've had your share.
I don't mean to be unfair, but you've got to learn.
You only get what you earn

Why didn't you care, why were you just lying there?
Why did you let it burst when it could bear?
Why didn't you come, shouldn't you be on the run?
Now your star is crashed and burnt and gone.

You've had your time.
You've had your turn.
You've had your share.
I don't mean to be unfair, but you've got to learn.
You only get what you earn...
