Mary Gauthier — Drop In A Bucket lyrics

Written by Mary Gauthier

Happy Anniversary, baby



It's been a year now since you moved away

Even though I asked you to go

I miss you every day

I miss you in the evenings

Alone in the bed where I lie

I miss you in the morning
Before I open my eyes




Then I gave away what didn't sell
I went and sold everything that I could, babe

I moved south to Nashville

I might like it there, but I can't tell


I been hanging in Austin

Eating Chili's and good Bar-B-Q

Writing songs about losing and heartache

Hey babe, I been writing 'bout you



A year, that ain't nothing

When you lose someone you love

A year is a drop in a bucket

When you lose someone you love



I been traveling hard since September
I won't get back to Nashville till June


I've played my songs all over the world


But I can't find a home without you
I press on like a mad rushing river

I press on with the will to survive


Part of me lives for the wind in my face

While the other part's barely alive


A year, that ain't nothing

When you lose someone you love

A year is a drop in a bucket



When you lose someone you love
So Happy Anniversary, baby


May fortune and fate be your friends


Wherever you go, I want you to know
I don't think my love ever ends


I carry it down the highway
It's a part of my body and soul

And one day it'll be the part of me

That will pull me up out of this hole



A year, that ain't nothing


When you lose someone you love
A year is a drop in a bucket
