  1. New Year's Day

From the recording New Year's Day

Lyrics

 
Ruby sunriseSpeckled lights that greet the dawnA lonesome highwayWhere the heart it pushes onDancing shadowsFill the head with a new songTo break the darknessLet the light keep burning on
I’m holding those ghosts at bayI’m keeping bad spirits awayOn New Year’s Day
Bottled heartacheIs an old and tired gameA different movieBut the plot it stays the sameA rush at endingsA dash at stories hobbled lameAn actor stumblesThrough a cold and meager fame
I’m holding those ghosts at bay I’m keeping bad spirits away On New Year’s DayPrayers of fortuneLinger in the riverstreamThough evening’s monarchCasts her mark upon the sceneMidnight flowersBlooming in a garden dreamThey burn with colorThey speak of wonders yet unseen
I’m holding those ghosts at bay I’m keeping bad spirits away On New Year’s Day
