"I think this record is just as innovative as Pop, it's just that the thing we're pushing to the forefront is the chemistry of the band playing together, and I think that is why people are referring back to earlier projects."

New Year's Day Lyrics

Found On:

Note: U2 has released different versions of most singles in different countries. We are not showing every cover image in this space, just one that's representative of each release.

"New Year's Day" (live from Sydney)

"When I hear 'New Year's Day' on the radio, I can't help thinking, 'What a great song. What happened to the drum part?' It's so uneventful and straight. With a little more time spent on that song, I might have been able to come up with something more inventive. I remember once sitting somewhere and the song came on and I overheard two guys talking (obviously drummers), saying, 'Those drums are so boring, duh-duh-duh-duh." - Larry, U2 By U2 2006

All is quiet on New Year's day
A world in white gets underway
I want to be with you, be with you night and day
Nothing changes on New Year's day
On New Year's day

I will be with you again
I will be with you again

Under a blood-red sky
A crowd has gathered in black and white
Arms entwined like a chosen few
The newspaper says it's true
Say it's true, it's true
And we can break through
Though torn in two we can be one

I will begin again
I will begin again

I will be with you again
I will be with you again
I will be with you again
I will be with you again
