"A Hard Year" as written by and Josh Joplin....
The sky is the color
Of white-hot iron
The sun is long overdue
Snow is falling
Hopeless and perfect
And I am waiting for you

A new afterthought
A stupid idea
I stayed home all day
And wished you were here
It's been a hard year

No one is safe
In a country of spies
The landlord is taking down names
This building is broken
Its windows are worthless
And no one ever complains

A new afterthought
A stupid idea
I stayed home all day
And wished you were here
It's been a hard year
It's been a hard year
It's been a hard year
It's been a hard year

The inkspots of birds
Shifting in flight
A long afternoon
Turns to night
And I see the sun
Through a crack in the sky
And just like that
It all passes by
It's been a hard year

Front-page pictures
Are already old
The dishes sit in the sink
Seven long days
Spent in bed
And I haven't slept a wink

A new afterthought
A stupid idea
I stayed home all day
And wished you were here
It's been a hard year
It's been a hard year
It's been a hard year
It's been a hard year

The sky is the color
Of white-hot iron
The sun is long overdue

    General CommentA simple end-of-the-year reflection on what has gone on in the past year and how rough it was. The singer is missing his lover.
