about

I thought I'd repost this on The Black Posts as it always reminds me of how I set out on a year ahead. Written in 2010 and released under 'John Candy'. Go listen to the whole album on spotify here - open.spotify.com/artist/60ZI5dShATYZRQOdHAVma3

lyrics

Lyrics:

I will start the year like an empty photograph
Because a year is not year unless it's scribbled on the back.
I will start the year with one foot inside a map,
Because a life is not lived without a compass and a bag.

I will start the year with nobody else but me.
Step into 365 how you wanted it to be.

Resolution bad habits.
Resolution stop this
Resolutions just three words of I will do or don't.
Resolution weigh 'this much'.
Resolution do not curse.
Resolutions just three words of I will do or don't.

I start the year with somebody else's name,
With somebody else's clothes, with somebody else's changes.
I will start the year like I've only got one shot,
A body full of teen blood, but all brain all filled with knots.

I will start the year with nobody else but me.
Step into 365 how you wanted it to be.

Resolution family tree
Resolution stop this
Resolutions dying young
Resolution call your son
Resolutions just three words of I will do or don't.
