"Champagne Year" as written by and Anne Erin Clark....
So I thought I'd learned my lesson
But I secretly expected
A choir at the shore
And confetti through the fallen air

I'll make a living telling people what they want to hear
It's not a killing, but it's enough to keep the cobwebs clear

'Cause it's not a perfect plan
It's not a perfect plan
But it's the one we've got

It's not a perfect plan
But it's the one we've got

'Cause I make a living telling people what they want to hear
But I tell ya, it's gonna be a champagne year

    General CommentThis song is about how we are all grasping at straws for easy answers to life's questions. Sometimes that can cause us to lie to ourselves and others. At the end of the song she makes a seemingly sarcastic remark about the upcoming "Champagne year." In actuality anything can happen and you just have to make the best of the situation whatever it may be. There will never be a perfect solution and yet as problem solvers we usually find a way to keep on the right track. The song is somewhat melancholic but I'm sure everyone has answered "well/fine/good" to the "how are you?" question without really meaning it... and thats the tone of this song.
