This Will Be Our Year

I can live with my old friend disappointment,
I can live with things not as they ought to be.
I can snatch a sorry crumb of comfort,
From the jaws of what might have been victory.

I make do, like everyone,
I put my head down on the pillow when the day is done.
I make do, don’t we all?
We hope we’re heading for a future,
We’re not headed for a fall…

I don’t know what this world’s about but,
This will be our year.
I don’t know why I’m singing out but
This will be our year.

Day by day, brick by brick we’ll build it,
Make a life, make something to call our own.
Just enough to keep the wolf at bay,
Just enough so we don’t feel so alone.

I make do, like everyone,
What’s the point regretting all the things you’ve done?
I make do, that’s what it takes yeah...
You keep on keeping on
And you learn from your mistakes

I don’t know what this world’s about but,
This will be our year.
I don’t know why I’m singing out but
This will be our year. Come on now.
This will be our year. Hold on now
This will be our year.

I make do, like everyone,
I put my head down on the pillow when the day is done.
I make do, that’s what it takes, yeah.
You keep on keeping on, you learn from your mistakes.

I don’t know what this world’s about but,
This will be our year.
I don’t know why I’m singing out but...
This will be our year. Yeah, hey, hey!
I don’t know what this world’s about but,
This will be our year.
I don’t know why I’m singing out but
This will be our year. Come on now
This will be our year. Hold on now.
This will be our year.

To be honest, I prefer the "Junebug EP" version of this song by Nerina:
