about

*(There may not be a more universally optimistic day on the calendar as New Year’s; a day of hope, promise and resolutions. But there is also the flip-side in that this time of year tends to lend itself to introspection and self refection. For an album that tries to tell the story of ‘starting over again’, this seemed like the obvious place to start.)

lyrics

Three more days…I’ll be thirty four
and in my own way…closing another door
And it’s hard to say…just what I miss the most
Or the things I saved…it’s the echoes of a ghost…(that I choose…)

When I couldn’t find the words to say
What I should have said to you, my friend
let’s start again
we’ll find a way
next New Year’s Day

(Sunday Morning…is every morning)
That’s the day I miss you the most
because that’s the day that I spent with you
(Sunday Morning…is every morning)
That’s the day I miss you the most
Because that’s the day I dream of you

Ten years today…I turned twenty four
it’s hard to say…just what I waited for
and from my sights…I never lost the shore
and in my own way…I never closed the door…(on you)

When I couldn’t find the words to say
What I should have said to you, my friend
let’s start again
we’ll find a way
next New Year’s Day
