The New Year

lyrics

The days have drifted by so suddenly
Now the new year comes in quietly
The room is cold as I close the door

I'm looking back at you and all we meant to do
But nothing good can come from holding on to you
The sun is warm as I close by eyes

I'm picking up the pieces of my memory
Remembering the places I feel free
I feel free

I open up the door, I feel the winter on my skin
Out into the snow, I hear the new year in the wind
The world is white, under open sky

I'm picking up the pieces of my memory
Remembering the places I feel free
I feel free
