I turn the lights on in the hallway
Walk down the stairs without a bit of grace
TVs on and the weather man says
It's just another sunny day
Open the curtains in the bay window
Look at the neighbors we don't get to know
All the cars are in the turning lane
And everybody waves

All I ever do is work
All I ever do is pray
But I do know that I have for you
A love that never fades
And it's ok
If it's all I ever do

You and I were gonna leave our little town
Find a bigger city go and settle down
And finally have the chance to see our dreams
Come springing into life
You sold your guitar when the baby came
We gave her Joni as her middle name
And cluttered up the house with fisher price
Never sleeping through the night

All I ever do is work
All I ever do is pray
But I do know that I have for you
A love that never fades
And it's ok
If it's all I ever do

You finally pull into the drive way
We're both exhausted from a long day
You wrap your arms around me with a kiss
You look at me and say
All we ever do is work
All we ever do is pray
But I do know that I have for you
A love that never fades
And it's ok
If it's all I ever do
I turn the lights off in the hallway...
