Anger is simple. . . . That's what rock is at the moment. It's an easy thing to do: painting in black. Joy is something else. -- Bono

"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 red is 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
Newspapers sold like a 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 will begin again
I will begin again

For our Polish cousins, come on now. Hey.

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