another year: a short history of almost something lyrics – amanda palmer

another year: a short history of almost something

i tried to fall in it again
my friends took bets and disappeared
they mime their sighing violins
i think i’ll wait another year

i want my chest pressed to your chest
my nervous systems interfere
ten or eleven months have p*ssed
i think i’ll wait another year

this weather turns my tricks to rust
i am a lousy engineer
the winter makes things hard enough
i think i’ll wait another year

plus i’m only twenty-six years old
my grandma died at eighty-three
that’s lots of time if i don’t smoke
i think i’ll wait another year

i’m not as callous as you think
i barely breath when you are near
it’s not as bad when i don’t drink
i think i’ll wait another year

i have my new bill hicks cd
i have my friends and my career
i’m getting smaller by degrees
you said you’d help me disappear

but that could take forever
i think i’ll wait another year
it’ll be the best year ever
i think i’ll wait another year
can’t we just wait together?
you bring the smokes, i’ll bring the beer
i think i’ll wait another year
