champagne year lyrics – st. vincent

“champagne year”

so i thought i’d learned my lesson
but i secretly expected
a choir at the sh*r*
and confetti through the fall night air

i’ll make a living telling people what they want to hear
it’s not a killing, but it’s enough to keep the cobwebs clear

cause it’s not a perfect plan
it’s not a perfect plan
but it’s the one we’ve got

it’s not a perfect plan
but it’s the one we’ve got

cause i make a living telling people what they want to hear
but i tell ya, it’s gonna be a champagne year
