about

A song about the struggling musician overcoming being a cover musician in clubs, and becoming an original artist.

lyrics

One year I hit the city
With a pocket full of dreams
Sold everything I owed
For a used guitar
All the songs that I believed in
Nobody wants to hear them
So I play “The Gambler”
one more time
In this broken down bar

Set up in the corner
With a whiskey or a beer
Playing every song
You think a guy should know
Every drunken mans suggestion
Makes you question your decision
Watch the time tick by
Till I can go back home

One year
Oh it seems so long
Going through the motions
It keeps dragging on
Feels like forever
Then it disappears
You can fall apart
Or come together
In just one year

Ruby, she’s a barmaid
Working 52 a year
Puts food on the table
Keep her kids in school
Shes says “Buddy. What’s your problem?”
With a smile upon her face
There’s a million people
Much worse off than you

One year
Oh it seems so long
Going through the motions
It keeps dragging on
Feels like forever
Then it disappears
You can fall apart
Or come together
In just one year

I’m just one song away
From where I want to be
It happens everyday
They’ll make a star outta me
And I’ll look back and see

One year
Didn’t seem so long
Now that it’s over
And I found my song
La la la la la
Now it’s clear
You can fall apart
Or come together
In just

One year
Didn’t seem so long
Now that it’s over
And I found my song
La la la la la
Now it’s clear
You can fall apart
Or come together
In just one year

You can fall apart
Or come together
In just one year
