The Mason

Have you ever had the experience where you have heard a song a million times and then one day you HEAR that song for the first time and it absolutely kills you? Yeah, this.

He builds a house
With his hands
Thirty years go by
It stands
It stands where nothing stood
A house of stone
The mason sleeps real good

He does his work
His workday flies
Quittin' time's a big surprise
And then it's one more stone
To get just right
It's always one more stone
Before the night

Every house he builds
Every stone he lays
It's not just makin' money
And countin' off the days

He builds a house
With his hands
A hundred years go by
It stands
It tells you who he was
A life goes fast
But the work a mason does
It's made to last
The work a mason does
Is made to last.
