The Loved Ones – Pretty Good Year lyrics

I've been working longer hours watching money streaming in
I've been trusting crooks and liars like I don't have any friends
I've been finding myself praying when I'm deepest in the sin
I've been reinventing happiness again

It's been painful resolution set to jubilant applause
It's soaring highs and crushing lows and grinding in the jaw
It's been begging for forgiveness after laying down the law
It's been like surgery to work through all the flaws

Will this overture seem dull to all my friends?
Will you love me if I leave you here again?
There's a faith that could tear this whole thing apart
But there are drinks that could cause the dancing to start

I've been standing at a crossroads for what seems like many days
If I go will the house fall down will I burn it if stay?
Should I be fighting like coward or running like a brave?
Will I be laughing like a madman either way?!

Will this overture seem dull to all my friends?
Will you love me if I leave you here again?
When the spell breaks we'll be back to work, what then?

There are lies that could tear this whole thing apart
But there are drinks that could cause the dancing to start

There are lies that could tear this whole thing apart
And there are songs that will beg to keep your heart
