    This year
    I'm going to try something new
    This year
    I'm going to find more things to do
    This year
    I'm going to walk that extra mile
    This year
    I'm going to try more to smile
    This year
    Is my year
    This year
    I will have no fear
    This year
    I'm going to change my ways
    This year
    I'm going to challenge them days
    When I'm frustrated or depress
    This year
    I'm not going to put up with that mess
    This year
    I'm not going to show any slack
    This year
    I will not be thrown off track
    Everyday should be lived like it was your last
    This year
    I'm not going to dwell on the past
    And start new
    I'm not finished yet
    I'm not through
    With my life
    This year
    More happiness and less strife
    I know that
    I've been through a lot
    But I'm not ready to quit
    I'm not
    This year
    Enjoy it
    This year
    Go for it
    This year
    You can't stop me from surviving
    This year
    You can't stop me from striving
    Last year is gone
    This year is now
    God is showing you ways to live
    God is showing you how
    This year
    I will not give in
    This year
    I will not try to sin
    As much as less year
    This year
    Less sadness and more cheer
    This year
    Keeping in touch
    This year saying
    I love you very much
    Instead of less
    Last year I must confess
    Was hard
    It was rough
    It was full of surprises
    It was tough
    Last year was hard on me
    I saw things that
    I didn't want to see
    I experienced more pain
    That I ever knew exist
    There were temptations
    That I could not resist
    But all that helped me
    It helped me grow
    It helped me survive
    Now I know
    That everything is going to be all right
    This year
    I'm going to fight
    For what I believe
    This year
    I will achieve
    These are my words
    These are words from my heart
    This year
    A new start
