"New Year's Day" (Special U.S. mix a.k.a. the Kervorkian mix)

"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

You won't hold me, hold me down
You won't break this heart
I will be free again

Stone cold night on a cold stone floor
A cluster of lights on the prison door
I want to be with you, be with you night and day
Nothing changes on New Year's day

I will begin again
I will begin again

Oh, I want to be with you, be with you night and day
Nothing changes on New Year's day
On New Year's day
