Ben Rector – A Song for 2021
This verse and chorus hit me late last night out of nowhere. This year has been the strangest year I can imagine, for everybody and for me specifically (having the twins, my job suddenly just grinding to a halt). In the midst of a lot of sadness and loss in the world it has somehow been one of the most formative years of my life, and I’m incredibly grateful for that. I think I imagined that by the time I had kids music would have burned me out, but somehow in being home I’ve really fallen in love with it again and feel deep peace and excitement at the same time. Here’s to putting 2020 behind us and believing that the best is yet to come.
I played it through a couple times and decided to post it all because why not, I know we’ve all got nothing to do today. Here are the lyrics if you are into that.
It’s been the kind of year
I’d be fine if I forgot
I’ll never forget it as long as I live
And that’s saying a lot
The wildest menagerie of unfortunate crazy things
And now, it’s all over
So raise up your glass
Here’s to brand new beginnings
Leave in the past all the things that are ending
Cause tomorrow will bring us a new morning sun
My friends, I believe that the best is yet to come
