Lyrics for Quiet, Heavy Dreams by Zach Bryan:

Verse 1
Mighty long shifts are for working
Heavy dreams are for toting around
Let's pretend there's a place to go
Where I can lay this hacksaw down
And I've been trying all my damndest
To get where a kind woman lies
Ten more hours to a twelve long shift
'Til these woods turn to her eyes
The timber cuts so cleanly
Monday morning when the blades are sharp
I get a love song stuck in my head
And cut sequoia 'til it’s dark

Chorus
If every hour's fourteen dollars or a chance closer to her
Then I’m not just a working mule, I’m the finest of the herd
And I don’t know who she is or if she might exist
But if she does I swear to love I’m destined for that kiss

Verse 2
How’s a man get so homesick
For a face he’s never seen?
I close my eyes while sweating
And think of boys I could've been
But I know that it’s not over
'Cause I feel her here somewhere
Through these trees and melodies
That I’m belting to the air

Chorus
If every hour’s fourteen dollars or a chance closer to it
The man I thought I’d be when I was just a kid
So I’ll just saw away and let the maul fall to the ground
Hope to heaven someone hears me
Even though no ones around

Verse 3
Mighty long shifts are for working
Quiet dreams are for toting around
Let's pretend there's a place to go
Where I can lay this hacksaw down
