"This Year" as written by Michael Smith, Tj Stafford Tarjnak and Bryan Todd....
Another year older, it came and went
Blood and the tears and the money spent
The New Year is here with the same old cast
We dance and we drink like it may be our last
Buzzin' waitin' for the countdown to come
Feels like slow motion from ten to one
A kiss and the fireworks light the sky
Fallin' apart over Auld Lang Syne
Let's focus on this night alone
I just hope that we make it home alive

The earth it turns, spring rushes in
Days get longer and the nights go thin
Mother wakes up a little brighter than before
Cold melts away and her gardens grow
The air is crisp and the fields are sweet
Grass and the daffodils tickling our feet
Flowers they bloom and the birds they sing
Fill up the day with the songs they bring
And I don't feel much like singin' at all
Seasons change, but I don't change at all

Well I've done wrong, I've done right
That's clear
Maybe I'll get better, maybe I'll be different
This year

Oh Here comes summer well it's comin' in hot
No shirt, no school, give it all you got
The sun it calls, let's go outside
Toastin' our drinks in the warm sunshine
The asphalt smoulders in the city street
Better run fast or you're gonna burn your feet
A splash, and a yell and a cannon ball
Enough love and laughter for one and all
Oh the futures' future lookin' bright
I think that I might get it right after all

Oh the autumn blows in off the summer wind
Leaves dive off of the trees, never see them again
Like embers they float in to the street
Golden and red and the dance repeats
Let's close up the curtains, let's stay inside
No flower, no fruit and the lawns all die
Well how could it all fall apart so fast
And why would I think it would ever last
When everything is dying, well how can I feel alive

Oh life is short, all good things disappear
Baby I've been lost, maybe I'll get found
This year

Oh the winter and the cold come stormin' in
Kicks down the door and your blood runs thin
Days too short and the nights too long
Carolers came I can't sing along
Oh the money's all gone, don't know where it went
Christmas ain't easy when you can't pay the rent
And the lights go out to a silent night
And all you can do is just stay in the fight
And I just can't feel the wrong, when I just can't see the right

Oh life is hard, I've been fightin' the fear
Baby I've been lost, don't think I'll get found this year

Oh I've done wrong, I've done right
That's clear
Maybe I'll get better, maybe I'll be different
Next year
