Let the judges be fair,

this was a broken year.

Let the judges be kind,

looking back on our sweet time.

Broken Year
Lyrics by Sylvie Abate

We traveled this road before
Crossed every bridge and more

You say it is what it is
You got nothing left to give

Let the judges be fair

this was a broken year

Let the judges be kind

looking back on our sweet time

We climbed this mountain before

aimed for the skies and more

Wasn't I the scent on your skin?

You were my only reason

Let the judge be fair

this was a broken year

Let the judges be kind

looking back on our sweet time

We walked this valley before

found comfort on familiar shore
Didn't I put our love first?

Didn't I quench your thirst

Let the judges be fair

this was a broken year

Let the judges be kind

looking back on our sweet time.

We played fiddles by the fire

singing songs of love and desire

We drank whiskey like it was wine

and we laughed until we cried

 

And we drank more than we should

trying to get it back to good

Oh, we drank more than we should

trying to get it back to good

Oh, we drank more than we should

trying to get it back to good

and we did the best we could

 

We did the best we could

We did the best we could

We did the best we could

We did the best we could

We did the best we could

We did the best we could
