12. New Year (bonus)

Recommended Posts

She sets her alarm
Five minutes to midnight
And wakes just in time
To greet thenew year
Remembers the kisses
Remembers the laughter
And all that's gone away
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
She shuffles around
Turning the lights on
Goes to the kitchen
Gets the champagne
Opens the windo
And wrapped in a blanket
Begins to count and wait

Ten, nine, eight, seven
Six, five, four, three, two, one
Happy New Year
Happy New Year

They say you can hear it
Over the island
Starting in Times Square
And spreading throughout
A roar like the ocean
It comes from a distance
Grows louder, then turns quiet

She sits in a dream
Or in a memory
While old conversations
Play in her ears
Sometimes the minutes
Feel longer than hours
Some days feel long as years

She's just glad
She gets to be around
To see another
Spring come to this town

Happy New Year
Happy New Year
To you

She sets her alarm
Five minutes to midnight
And wakes just in time
To say her goodbyes
Thanking the old year
For all it has brought her
No mention of the things it took away

She shuffles around
Turning the lights out
Closes the window
Checks on the locks
Folds up the blanket
Empties the bottle
And leaves it in the hallway dark

She's just glad
She gets to be around
To see another
Spring come to this town

Happy New Year
Happy New Year
Happy New Year
Happy New Year

Happy New Year
Happy New Year
To you

Happy New Year
Happy New Year
Happy New Year
Happy New Year

Happy New Year
Happy New Year
To you
