"This Will Be My Year" as written by and Jake Slichter....
Thursday's crush is a Friday night rush
And a Monday morning cry
It's the tail that you keep chasing
And it gets away every time
New Years eve and it's hard to believe
Another Zodiac's gone around
While you drank yourself high on hoping
And watched the ceiling spin from the ground

Counting down from ten it's time
To make your annual prayer
Secret Santa in the sky
When will I get my share

Then you tell yourself
What you want to hear
Cause you have to believe
This will be my year

Pound your fist and cross it off your list
But you know you're not that strong
When the man at the stop light catches you
Singing along to a brand new song

Well maybe it's
Trash or the overnight smash that brings your
Ship crashing through the wall
So you can make your grand departure
From a world getting way too small

One wheel in the ditch another
Spinning in the air

Put your pedal down to the floorboard but you're not
Getting anywhere

Then you tell yourself
What you want to hear
Cause you have to believe
This will be my year

    General CommentIt's about living the lonely life and always believing that what we're waiting for will come along. It's really I guess a song about hope that someday you will get that girl that you dream of as horrible as it seems to get there.

    General CommentI think it's about being depressed and trying to convince yourself that this will be the year everything comes together like you always thought it would. It seems, though, by the end of the song, the speaker has given up hope and makes a "grand departure from a world getting way too small" in a car accident. The last chorus seems ironic almost.
