Hanson - No Rest For The Weary Lyrics




I don't need to make sense
I don't try to rhyme
'Cause I've paid my dues
Yeah, I've done my time
I might eat my hat
I might lose my case
But I won't hide my words
Behind a poker face

You know that
There's no rest, for the weary
Brother don't waste my time
'Cause I've already made up my mind
There's no rest, for the weary
Yesterday was just fine
But the future's all I've got time for
Got time for

I'm a wide-eyed fool
For the first temptation
I'll give up guarantees
Find a good vibration
I'm a rich blasphemer
And a poor man's saint
'Cause my feet can't move
To where my heart just ain't

You know that
There's no rest, for the weary
Brother don't waste my time
'Cause I've already made up my mind, oh yeah!
There's no rest, for the weary
Yesterday was just fine
But the future's all I've got time for, yeah!

I don't hold my liquor
I don't share my business
Don't like to ask permission
I'd rather give forgiveness
'Cause I take my cue
From a condemned man
So I break their rules
Whenever I can

Ah... singing... ah...

Yesterday was just fine
But the future's all I've got time for
Yesterday was just fine
But the future's all I've got time for

I know I'm living
When I feel the strain
On the back of my neck
On the front of my brain
And I can't resist
When I hear proclaimed
That it can't be done
Boy that'll never be changed

You know that
There's no rest, for the weary
Brother don't waste my time
'Cause future's all I've got time for
There's no rest, for the weary
Yesterday was just fine
But I've already made up my mind

Yesterday was just fine
But the future's all I've got time for
...

No rest, for the weary
Brother don't waste my time
I've already made up my mind
There's no rest, for the weary
Yesterday was just fine
But the future's all I've got time for

No rest, for the weary
Brother don't waste my time
I've already made up my mind
There's no rest, for the weary
Yesterday was just fine
But the future's all I've got time for

Hanson No Rest For The Weary Comments
  1. rubs troll

    They wasted an opportunity of not opening the doors of the theatre to the passersby in the street...maybe the didn't want spoil the seats...

  2. Samantha Church

    This album would make a really excellent musical score. Just sayin'. Go get that broadway money!

    Stephanie L

    As a lifelong Hanson fan and musical theater nerd, it would be a total "shut up and take my money!!" moment if they ever decided to compose a musical :D

  3. Vic Victory

    Cant wait to see you guys in Omaha in a couple weeks! I've seen you once and it's still my favorite show to this day and that was like 10 years ago.

  4. Julie Marion

    Taylor's voice💘💘💘

  5. Julie Marion

    💙💙💙💙💙

  6. novrianti pw

    Will you guys have a concert in jakarta? If yes, when?

  7. Thelonious Coltrane

    Sounds like the song "Bitter Sweet Symphony!"

  8. Ina Jager

    Healing music💕 i love Hanson😀

  9. Suicide to Recovery

    GMMore brought me here.

  10. Katie de Ridder

    This is probably my favourite from String Theory. I listened to it over and over before seeing them in Melbourne. I was secretly waiting for it... and wow... it went off!!! Everyone got so into it!!! So awesome to be a part of that!!!!! Serious gospel vibes!!!!

  11. Camila Bassi

    I love Hanson!! Great song!!

  12. PabloCruise91

    Amazing band.

  17. kansascity online

    great music fellas.. yea Im a Zep Floyd Rush fan.. but ya know what??? I have always embraced the brothers Hanson music.. Yea, they rank among those greats. Great musicians.. Class act.. True gentleman. LOV THIS SONG!!.. :)

    Dawn F

    I always think Hanson and Rush are similar in many ways (not musically). Both never sold out and kept the music pure. Both were respectful to their fans and did not abuse drugs, women and alcohol and both were not given the credit they deserved. Rush only now have the 'respect' of the music 'industry'...but Hanson will one day be applauded for the gift they have given the world. Not dark, or evil, or depraved music... but beautiful and celestial. Well done to them. They are blessed.

    kansascity online

    @Dawn F well said... The Hanson brothers are long overdue for their due respect from the music industry. They could make music from a stick and a bottle of water - -they are that good!.. :)

  18. Carly Allen

    Good people and good music. That's Hanson.

  19. Ginger Dzerk

    Getting excited to see this in Tulsa a few months from now.

  20. HANSON

    No Rest For The Weary is an important song in the String Theory album, representing the resolve to embrace challenges as a part of a life well lived. Check out the full version of the song as we get ready to bring the show to the UK and Europe next week!

  26. Red_Moonlight

    This is one of my favorites! 💖💖💖 I'm still not losing hope that you would bring #StringTheory in Asia, especially here in the PHILIPPINES, @HANSON ... 😖🇵🇭🇵🇭🇵🇭

  27. Josie S

    Every time they add a new full song video, I go "oh no, THIS is my favorite from String Theory!" LOL But seriously, this one is right up there. It's keeping me afloat on some rough days. "Yesterday was just fine, but the future's all I've got time for!" Ok, even if yesterday wasn't so "fine", it's done, can't change it, keep looking forward.

  28. Thaís Emanuelle

    I love this song so much ❤️

  29. Jennie White

    My favorite song on the album ❤️.

  38. Alberany Alves

    First time I hear this song and I'm already crazy about it! Your work is incredible, guys!

  39. Jusselia Cuccittini

    Amo tanto desde 1997 ❤

  40. HeyitsDee

    Welcome back, Hansons! I missed you!! Another great song

    Red_Moonlight

    Hanson never left. 😉

    HeyitsDee

    @Red_Moonlight I think they were on Tour for a bit.

    Red_Moonlight

    @HeyitsDee Yes. Actually, they are always on tour. They left the mainstream world, and become independent artists since 2003, with their own label, called 3CG Records. That's why most people thought they disappeared from the music scene.

    HeyitsDee

    @Red_Moonlight I didn't think they disappeared lol. I was just accustomed to seeing frequent uploads from "String Theory". Plus I know that Taylor and his wife welcomed their 6th child in December, so a brief YouTube hiatus made sense. It's just nice to see a new video 😊

    Red_Moonlight

    @HeyitsDee Oh, okay. You said from your first comment, "Welcome back, Hanson!" That's why I thought you didn't know that they have remained active in the music scene all along. 😅✌

  41. Luana Hilario

    One of my favorites songs. I loved the version.

  42. Karem Teixeira

    ❤️❤️🎵🎵🎵 Loved!

  43. Fernanda Ebling

    Amazing, boys

  44. A Gray

    This is absolutely incredible. When I see you guys now, i always think back to the Middle of Nowhere video when you were asked what you'd be doing 10 years from now, and you said that in 10, 20 years, you'd be doing music. I'm so glad I'm still here for the ride!💜💜

    unknown user

    So true!

    Marion B

    Second that ! I remembered seeing Zac running on the scene, I was like 18 ish and he was 12-ish. Ditto for Isaac and Tay - Hilarious, no no we don't feel like super old, what a ride & memories :)

    astanapane137

    Im so happy i discovered them when i was 14, they always have been great role models. Dedicated to their craft, excellent family men and all around individuals

    Ashley Doty

    Been a fan since they played WI in 1996 at 10 years old...I just need to meet Zac. Now Mac has an amazing band!!
