I work on the front line, I work to survive
I sleep in a fever, So this is my life

I cry in my sleep, cry boy, cry boy
It just makes me weep when I try, how I try
I know what it means to work hard on machines
It's a labor of love so please don't ask me why?

Looking for reasons, day in, day out
Trying too hard, he's trying too hard
Moving in circles, too hot, too hot
Don't get very far, don't get very far

Should I ask you to dance? Dance boy, dance boy
If I promise romance would you come for the ride?
I know what it means to work hard on machines
Do you believe in love, one that lasts for all time?

You take me up, oh hoh
You take me up to the higher ground
You take me up so high
Now I never want to come back down

I'm glad in these hard times, day in, day out
There's hope in your eyes, hope in his eyes
I don't need a religion, too hot, too hot
'Cause this love never dies, love never dies

I believe in today,believe boy, believe boy
It's better that way and you work through the night
I know what it means to work hard on machines
It's a labor of love, so please don't ask me why?

You take me up, oh hoh
You take me up to the higher ground
You take me up so high
Now I never want to come back down

I cry in my sleep, cry boy, cry boy
It just makes me weep when I try, how I try
I know what it means to work hard on machines
It's a labor of love so please don't ask me why?

You take me up, oh hoh
You take me up to the higher ground
You take me up so high
Now I never want to come back down

You take me up, oh hoh
You take me up to the higher ground
You take me up so high
Now I never want to come back down
