Parachute - New year


I'm sick of cleaning up
The mess you left behind
What a way to start the new year
On my hands and knees
And cleaning out the dirt and grime
Oh what a way to start the new year

I'm sick of holding
Both ends of a tightrope
'Cause when you fall
All that's left is old high hopes for me
I'm stretched thin to the end
Tryin keep it all in
Oh what a way to start the new year

Won't you say that it's all right?
Won't you tell me it's okay?

-CHORUS-
Because there's
Three hundred and sixty four more days
I might be smiling
But you'll never even hear me say
That I like it in the shadows
Counting down to zero
Just to start again
Oh what a way to start the new year


Don't get me wrong I hate this holiday
Oh what a way to start the new year
On my hands and knees
And choosing what I have to say
Oh what a way to start the new year
I never realized it could mean so much
Just to go to bed later
When we have to get up all the same

And we scream and clap
For the end of what was
And what we become, oh
Won't you say that it's all right?
Won't you tell me it's okay?

-CHORUS-

But was it really that bad
And could it be better
Well I don't know
But with you I still have hope
That this could be all my year

Three hundred and sixty four more days
One million chances left to find you
And to see your face
Making light out of my shadows
Finally get to zero
And maybe we'll both say

That we have
Three hundred and sixty four more days
One million chances left to find you
And to see your face
Making light out of my shadows
Finally get to zero
And maybe we'll both say
Oh what a way to start the new year
