Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm writing this song on New Years Eve
I wrote one a year before
It was a sad dark tune about my broken heart and snow and
Not knowing where you were
Another year has passed and I'm lifting a glass
To say good bye and hello to the new
But the only thing I wanted for Christmas was to be close to you
Verse 2
Hey hey merry Christmas
Hey hey happy New Year too
Verse 3
When the ball drops in Manhattan
And he leans his head in close to yours
And your heart speeds up and your palms sweat honey listen
Well he's in your eyes and you taste his breath
But there's something you're probably missing
Cause you shouldn't be kissing who you're kissing
Verse 4
Hey hey merry Christmas
Hey hey happy New Year too
Verse 5
I spent last year trying to make things right, but
Sometimes I try to fight
New York City remains a light in the dark
I need a thread to sew my broken heart
So much leaving and returning
So many ambitious dreams
Sometimes leave me empty
Sometimes leave me stumbling
Verse 6
When your mother calls to say happy New Year
Remember all the moments we shared
I'll be singing in a bar with some friends quite aware
That you're not there
I hear the man in your mouth isn't in your heart
I hope you find a way to tell him the truth
And remember the pace of its rhythm when it was me and you
Verse 7
Hey hey merry Christmas
Hey hey happy New Year too
Hey hey merry Christmas
Hey hey happy New Year too
