lyrics

My black year
My black bottle of beer
I knocked it back
But I felt the same

Another drunk
Passed out on the table in front
A well-thumbed dictionary by his side

A faded page in the back
Some random numbers scrawled in black
And in bold letters were three words: “You care because…”

My black days
I tried to mend my old ways
But you know how difficult it is to change

A door which slams
Interrupting all of our plans
Useless papers scattered all over the floor

I had no family history
Because it was never taught to me
The faded photographs in the loft were all thrown out

It was all in my black year
It was all in my black year

Sunbathing as soon as the snow is gone
Waking up when you’ve lost someone
I’ve wasted time and I don’t have long
I realise now

It was all in my black year
It was all in my black year

My black year
My black bottle of beer
My black year
My black bottle of beer
