"New Year's Day"

"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

Yeah

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, the chosen few
The newspaper says, says
Say it's true, it's true
And we can break through
Though torn in two, we can be one

I, I will begin again
I, I will begin again

Yeah

Oh and maybe the time is right
Oh maybe tonight

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

And so we are told this is the golden age
And gold is the reason for the wars we wage
Though I want to be with you
Be with you night and day
Nothing changes on New Year's Day
On New Year's Day
On New Year's Day
