New Year

from Lent 2010 by Once in a Moon



There's sixty seconds left til midnight
I've seen a few my love
I've done the Thames, been crushed in Times Square
Crowds below and fireworks above

I've partied in mansions and squats and on beaches
I've even once tried to drink a bar dry
But spending new year in my own back garden
Has been the best and I'll tell you why

It wasn't the pizzas in greased cardboard boxes
It wasn't the hunt for curious foxes
It wasn't the champagne, or even the gin,
It wasn't the place that we were in

I'll tell you now and I'll tell you true,
The thing that makes my heart explode is you


from Lent 2010, track released February 17, 2010
Written and Performed by Robert Wells.
