"Autumn is a promise" is a song written for the workers of Nova Scotian call centres, and for people who feel they squander their destiny to make a decent living.


"Don't let it out" they might say
"Your work should never look like your play"
Then I feel I must convey: I ain't worked a day
I've never worked a day

So I'll pray I'll earn my keep
and that this Autumn is but a promise for spring

So "I'm sorry" They might say
"Well, your passion won't pay nor will your do-goodings.
So just make it with what we have made
to keep your darkness at bay just put your dreams away"

But I want to
and put my best parts
in the game

and you'll pray I'll earn my keep
But tomorrow it is , Oh yes tomorrow is

Not yesterday. Oh yes, and Tomorrrow is. Not. Yesterday.

So I'll let it out and I will say:
"Well my passion will pay
If I know my do goodings
and I'll make it with what I am made
To keep my nightmares away
I won't tuck my dreams away"

and you'll pray I'll earn my keep

but Autumn is but
a promise for spring
