Brand New Year

lyrics

hey future me: I got you a gift
it’s an extremely detailed list
of everything you’re about to achieve or have achieved already

hey future me I’ve got complete faith
that you’ll learn to love all the things that I hate
like completing difficult tasks outside your comfort zone, and waking up early

it’s a brand new year
for getting hard goals met
and it will soon be here
but it’s not yet

hey future me: there’s a lot of work to do
but good news:
I’ve put my faith in you
you can show everybody that we can do so much more
there’s no more time for waiting
and it’ll be real humiliating
if you aren’t ready to do everything that I’ve signed you up for

it’s a brand new year
and it is fun I bet
the time for work is near—
but not quite yet

it’s all planned out and that should be pleasant
all you’ll need to do is live in the present
and check off each task as you fulfill the plan of our grand endeavor

I’m pinning all my hopes on you
I already scheduled a venue
and it’ll be fine if you stay on schedule for the first time ever….

it’s a brand new year
and we’ll have no regrets
the future is so clear
but it’s not yet
