New Year Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
She sets her alarm
Five minutes to midnight
And wakes just in time
To greet the new year
Remembers the kisses
Remembers the laughter
And all that's gone away
Verse 2
She shuffles around
Turning the lights on
Goes to the kitchen
Gets the champagne
Opens the window
And wrapped in a blanket
Begins to count and wait
Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one
Verse 3
Happy New Year, happy New Year
Verse 4
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
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
She just glad she gets to be around
To see another spring come to this town
Verse 7
Happy New Year, happy New Year
To you
Verse 8
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
Verse 9
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
Verse 10
She's just glad she gets to be around
To see another spring come to this town
Verse 11
Happy New Year, happy New Year
Happy New Year, happy New Year
Happy New Year, happy New Year
To you
Verse 12
Happy New Year, happy New Year
Happy New Year, happy New Year
Verse 13
Happy New Year, happy New Year to you
