"New Year's Day"


Recommended Posts

A few hours early for Pacific Coast Time, but what the heck. U2 is my favorite band since the 80s. I don't know what they were talking about, but somehow these lyrics seem to fit what I'm thinking about...

New Year's Day by U2

All is quiet on New Year's Day.

A world in white gets underway.

I want to be with you, be with you night and day.

Nothing changes on New Year's Day.

On New Year's Day.

I... will be with you again.

I... will be with you again.

Under a blood-red sky

A crowd has gathered in black and white

Arms entwined, the chosen few

The newspaper says, says

Say it's true, it's true...

And we can break through

Though torn in two

We can be one.

I... I will begin again

I... I will begin again.

Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.

Oh, maybe the time is right.

Oh, maybe tonight.

I will be with you again.

I will be with you again.

And so we are told this is the golden age

And gold is the reason for the wars we wage

Though I want to be with you

Be with you night and day

Nothing changes

On New Year's Day

On New Year's Day

On New Year's Day
