A Pretty Good Year

It’s been a pretty good year, except for the time
that your boyfriend walked out in the middle of the night.
But, hey, what the hell. Who needs love anyway,
when we’re all biding time until our dying day?

It’s been a pretty good year, except for the way
that your job pays for nothing, and your ma passed away.
But you’ve got what you’ve got ‘til you drink it away
with your friends at the bar who don’t know your last name.


Happy New Year?! Speak for yourself.
Well I’ve never thought highly of wishes to health
‘cause we’re all getting sicker in the skin and the soul,
And don’t you remind me about it anymore.


Chorus:
It’s been a pretty good year, but next year will be better.
This here’s the one where we turn it around.
A pretty good year, I know we can do better.
This time we’ll pick ourselves up off the ground.

Verse:
It’s been a pretty good year, except for the pinch
of the world on your pennies, and they won’t give an inch.
But, hey, love is free if you only had some to give,
but it’s hard to find love when you’re finding a way to live.


Happy New Year?!, speak for yourself.
Well I’ve never thought highly of wishes to health
‘Cause we’re all getting sicker in the skin and the soul,
And don’t you remind me about it anymore.

Chorus:
It’s been a pretty good year, but next year will be better.,
This here’s the one where we turn it around.
A pretty good year, I know we can do better.,
This time we’ll pick ourselves up off the ground.

Verse:
It’s been a pretty bad year. My sister is dead.
She was killed by the cancer that grew in her head.
Everyone’s tired, yeah we’ve all got our shit,
and next year we’ll all have a lot more of it.

Chorus:
It’s been a pretty bad year but next year will be better.
This here’s the one where we turn it around.
A fucking bad year I know we can do better,
This time we’ll pick ourselves up off the ground.
This time we’ll pick ourselves up off the ground.
This time we’ll pick ourselves up off the ground .
