It’s New Year’s Eve, there’s the open stage,
The earth has turned to reveal my age
So I scan the crowd to find the face
That won’t make me feel it

All the people here, they might think that they know me
But I’m still looking for one who could show me
Who I am, who I was,
And who I’m yet to be

Oh but maybe I’ll see you,
And you right into me too,
And for just one moment
All my memories will fade.
We’ll take a chance
On a new romance
The night before New Year’s Day

Well it’s been a year, with too many tears
And a few dark patches from a few too many beers,
Well, ‘may old acquaintance be forgot’,
Not come to my mind.

You see, me, I don’t need no reason for reflection
When all of my days end with nights of introspection,
Well, maybe a bit more resolve
Should be my resolution

But I’ll change when I find you
I’ll heal you heartaches too
And together we’ll live in that moment
And feel no pain
We’ll toast the past
Move on at last
The night before New Year’s Day

I could fall in love with you
And maybe you, me, too
Or maybe just with the moment
That we’d make
Touching souls
To beat the cold
The night before New Year’s Day
