Decide To Stay and Swim - Song #8: One Projectile From The Sun

Part of an ongoing series where I revisit 2003's record, Decide To Stay And Swim

A reflection on new year's resolutions as winter melts away and we wager words and wilt with blame.

Here's the new version of 'One Projectile From The Sun':

Lyrics: 

I caught a cold for this new year 

Can I park my car out here 

And finish off this toast 

That's meant to keep me home. 

To wager words or wilt with blame 

When gin and tonic makes some gains 

To save the day but set me back 

10,000 more. 

And I'm only one per cent under the gun 

That's only one projectile from the sun. 

A trophy wins a trophy's charm 

With catatonic false alarms 

Focused on the past 

And waiting here for you. 

I caught a cold for this new year 

So can I hang my jacket here 

And finish off this toast 

That's meant to keep me home.

And I'm only one per cent under the gun  

That's only one projectile from the sun.
