New Year’s Day

Wanna sing this one?

I wanna be with ya be with ya night and day
Nothing changes on New Year’s Day
On New Year’s Day

I will be with you again / I…I
I will be with you again / I…I

Under a blood-red sky
A crowd has gathered in black and white
Arms entwined, the chosen few
The newspapers say, say
That it’s true it’s true
We can break through
Though torn in two, we can be one

I…I will begin with you again / I…I
I…I will begin again / I…I
Hey

Yeah
I will be with you again / I…I
I will be with you again / I…I
I will be with you again / I…I
I will be with you again / I…I
