About the artist

Scott Wilburn is an artist and musician living in Sandpoint Idaho. Born in the fifties, having come of age during the turbulent sixties, and grown to adulthood in the seventies, began recording in the eighties, produced his first CDs in the nineties, and still writing and recording into the new millennium, his song writing reflects a wide variety of influences, with bits of electric blues, piano ballads, acoustic songs, heavy metal riffs, synth pop, and country rock jams all rolled into an improbable mix that defies most attempts at catagorization. A veritable one-man band, Scott writes the music & lyrics and plays most of the instruments on most of his songs, with cameo appearances by his many talented friends. His goal is that "no two songs sound alike".

Lyrics

Pushin' to the Limit
© 2010 Scott Wilburn

I'm workin' real hard, tryin' to make a livin'
Workin' both night and day
I'm pushin' real hard, you know I'm really driven
But I just can't seem to make it pay

If I could make a buck, it'd be a piece o'luck
But it just keeps gettin' harder every day

I'm gettin' pretty tired, I'm feelin' kind o'wired
from these 16 hour days
I'm pushin' to the limit, won't last another minute
I'm losin' sleep...I'm in too deep

Another day at work, I'm dealin' with a jerk
He's twisting every word I say
I tried my best to help him, but nothing's gonna please him
I just wish he'd get a life and go away

I don't get paid enough to take this kind of guff
And it just keeps gettin' harder every day

Another night at home, got some salesman on the phone
And he just won't give it up and let me be
My car's broken down, and the bills are comin' round
No solution to my problems I can see

Something's gotta give, this ain't no way to live
And it just keeps gettin' harder every day

Another Dawn, Another day
After another sleepless night
I grab a cup o' joe, before it's time to go
And then I jump back in the fight

If I could make a buck, it'd be a piece o'luck
But it just keeps gettin' harder every day
