Where have I been all your life?
Sitting on fences, a novacain for all the senses
Another year will pass us by
Making sense of nothing in defense of something
I laughed too late and dug myself into a grave

This year I'll try not to think too much
This year I'll try to stand up for myself
This year I'll live like I've never lived before
This is my year for sure

Another stupid clumsy story
More accidental aspirations
Another explosion of silence
I think I'm going deaf
Or maybe I'm just hearing less
This year I'll try to only listen to myself

I wonder where you'll be ringing in the new year
As midnight clocks are singing
Good chance Ill be slobbering somewhere
I'll probably pass out wasted
And sleep until the smoke clears
Vague memories of midnight
Flash in tune to morning sunlight
I wake up knowing you'll never be there

I've got one hundred resolutions
But I've got no solutions
I've got one song I write a hundred times
And only a dozen or so rhymes

This year I'll try not to drink so much
This year I'll try to stand up straight
This year let's live like we've never lived before
This is my year for sure

    General CommentThis song to me is how everybody wants to rectify themselves, and amend their imperfections every new year, but they have no way of ever resolving them. It almost seems like he has to reassure himself that this is the year that's going to bring about the change he's been waiting for (This year let's live like we've never lived before, this is my year for sure)... this lawrence arm's song always depresses me :(

    General CommentI feel like it's him trying to say that he is going to do all the things he promised he would do for a girl. The reason she left him but, all he can do is think about trying to be better the next year and know that she'll never come back to him no matter if he fixes the problems.
