Here’s to 2010

January 1st, 2011 by Thalia Kehoe Rowden

Here’s a Brooke Fraser song, ‘Here’s to You’ that seems a fitting salute to 2010 with its ups and downs. It’s a jaunty one from her recent album, Flags.

What’s the line you are most grabbed by?

Cheers to the furrows on our brow
To each hard-won victory
Cheers to the losses that grew us up
Killed our pride, and filled our cup

Cheers to the friendships well worn in
That time nor distance alter
Here’s to the sleepers we’ll see again
Find company in memoria

Open your mouth and sing out your song
Life is short as the day is long
I can’t leave you my body
But I’ll leave you a tune
This is my legacy
Cheers to you

Cheers to the passing of our youth
And the death of lust not wonder
A toast to the lessons not yet learned
And to the trials that will teach them

Open your mouth and sing out your song
Life is short as the day is long
I can’t leave you my body
But I’ll leave you a tune
This is my legacy
Cheers to you

Open your mouth and sing out your song
Life is short as the day is long
I can’t leave you my body
But I’ll leave you a tune

Open your mouth, and sing out your song
Life is short as the day is long
I can’t leave you my body
But I’ll leave you a tune
This is my legacy
This is my legacy
This is my legacy
Cheers to you
