Quote a song lyric that sums up your year?
words & music by jason mraz

Hands in line
Arms close to my side
I’m fighting tides of an ocean’s undertow
And I figure I might not make it
And I’m taking empty
But seldom keeping
And the words retreat breathing histories into stories untold
And I unfold.

My hands are high
And I’m holding out, holding up
Because I figure that I just might make it
And I’m waking empty but seldom sleeping
And the words repeat breathing histories into stories untold
And I unfold.
