Cancel all my plans
I'm going to run for a mile each day
Going to shed this weight
Turn my body into something great
So, what do we want this year?
Why do we resolve to change?
Spend less time alone
Checking emails and cradling my phone
Break more bread with friends
Get out the house once in a while
Read that list of books
Watch all the films that I know I should
Breathe less city air
Find somewhere green to rebuild, repair
So, what do we want this year?
Why do we resolve to change?

    Song Meaning"Here is a miserable song about resolutions to cheer up...maybe? It's insane how December just slowly shuts down businesses of all sorts, and the songwriting factory that is Aidan and I were no exception. It has been difficult to find time to finish this one, but here it is and we're very pleased.

    Like everyone else I make new years resolutions, rarely written but carefully thought up. They almost always include something about booze, something about fitness and never anything about world peace or the environment. So this is a song about the notion of resolving to change, why do we do it? I've mentioned a few things in the song I do genuinely intend to change next year - my reliance on my phone is something I really want to combat, and I do hope to see more of my wonderful friends. But honestly, I should want that all the time.

    Production wise, I've been listening to a lot of Geotic recently and there's
    some of his fuzzy, hissy guitar style in there. We've also referenced Guy
    Sigsworth, a friend and hero to both Aidan and I. It's a lazy day song, and
    I'm certain most of you will be having one of those today. I hope this year brings us all everything we want, but let's not beat ourselves up too much on the resolution front!"
