we have all had a year to remember, and simultaneously try to forget.
I am coming out of this year disinterested and ready for a new leaf.
I pray all of us are able to turn over that leaf. I know we will.

god bless you. happy new year. merry christmas

Track Name: year in review
2016's been a hell of a year
lost a lot of good people and i hear
i hear them cry

thought i found love but i found you
guess that's ok. it'll do
it did for a while.

i miss you eddy
i miss you bad
i know you're not there
i know you had
a hell of a year.

i miss my friends
and i miss dad
they're still living
I'm just sad

been so busy

think ill take a drive
maybe this week
clear my head
go down chickamauga creek

if I'm lucky ill find myself
but at least i tried
to make it well

so long and farewell

i miss cris and phil
i miss we raised our own hell
even a small flame

i miss shelley
and i miss fields
hope they're both ok
hope they're doing well.

but i love this
i love it so
i love making work
i love the show
keep on giving

I'm sorry momma you were right
college has been pretty nice
thanks for asking

sometimes i get lonely and scared and i cry
worry about if my grandparents are going to die

a valid fear

ira got vertigo in February
scared us to death

we were worried for him

2016's been a hell of a year
goodbye clark bowie prince and fisher

2016's been a hell of a year

i came in shy but now I'm all here

bye, bye, bye.
