Lyrics
Last year, I drank a lot
I drank 'til I fell down
Last year, I smoked a lot
'Til my lungs turned brown
Last year, I crawled in circles
This year, I'm climbing up clouds, clouds
I don't know where I went wrong
I was lost, now I'm found, now you're gone, gone

'Cause I'm not a saint but I can paint myself into a better picture
One day, you'll see me in a big, golden frame and it'll hit you

Last year, I promised myself I'd stop writing songs about girls
But you're a woman
Last year, I let you down
And I know I should have been around instead of drinking in town
Last year, I was a little boy
Now I feel like a young man, so many plans

I don't know where I went wrong
I was lost, now I'm found, now you're gone, gone

Two, three, four
'Cause I'm not a saint but I can paint myself into a better picture
One day, you'll see me in a big, golden frame and it'll hit you
So let's call it even, we've got something to believe in and you know this
You know this is true
I'm talking to you so don't cut me out
I know you've got doubts but don't be too hasty and waste me like I'm wasting myself
I'm sorry for last year
I understand you and I read you like a book
And I know why you think that you've got to do this
You think these are all just empty words made pretty with my guitar
Thinking that there's no way that I could ever prove this
You're holding on to the past but it won't last
'Cause I know that I can make you laugh and smile
And I know that I can make all this pain worthwhile
We'll take it slow but if you want to move fast, I'm at your pace
And I know this sounds crazy but you know you amaze me
I'll never be lazy unless it's to be lazy with you
I don't know where I went wrong
I was lost, now I'm found, now you're gone, gone

'Cause I'm not a saint but I can paint myself into a better picture
One day, you'll see me in a big, golden frame and it'll hit you
So let's call it even, we've got something to believe in and you know this
You know this is true
I'm talking to you so don't cut me out
I know you've got doubts but don't be too hasty and waste me like I'm wasting myself
Sorry for last year

Guess I'll see you around
You don't know how much I'm going to prove myself to you
With or without
