lyrics

January’s Here

She fills a coffee cup and puts away the cards
Happy new year, January’s hard
The wind is blowing bows and baubles down the street
He files a tax return, tries to get some sleep
He says it’s more than I can do to make ends meet

Last night together full of whisky, full of song
To chase away the past before the morning comes along
Half-empty glasses raise a mighty cheer
This could be the year…
January’s here

Dark and dreary dull down all her shiny dreams
Good intentions tearing at the seams
He had a plan but now the night’s already come
Breathe in, breathe out
One day we’ll see the sun
It fades so fast when good intentions come undone

Last night together full of whisky, full of song
To chase away the past before the morning comes along
Half empty glasses raise a mighty cheer
This could be the year…
This could be the year…
January’s here
