Slaid Cleaves – One Good Year lyrics
It’s New Years Day
Just like the day before
Same old skies of grey
Same empty bottles on the floor
Another year gone by
And I’m thinking once again
How can I take this losing hand
And somehow win

Just give me one good year
To get my feet back on the ground
I’ve been chasing grace
But grace ain’t so easily found
One bad hand can devil a man
Chase him and carry him down
I gotta get out of here
Just give me one good year

I’m burning oil
Engine’s running rough
I drive from job to job
But it’s never enough
I can’t find the will
To just up and get away
Some kind of chains holding me down
To make me stay

Just give me one good year

It’s a bitter wind
In your face every day
It’s the little sins
That wear your soul away
When you start giving in
Where do the promises all go
Will your darkest hour
Write a blank check on your soul?

Just give me one good year
To get my feet back on the ground
I’ve been chasing grace
But grace ain’t so easily found
One bad hand can devil a man
A good one can turn him around
I gotta get out of here
Just give me one good year
