New years eve

 

Wake up and open your eyes

Look down and watch the time fly

Beneath your feet / It's moving slowly down the street

Report for duty at your job / You'll turn a profit m Mr. Hobbs

Before you can shake a stick / At two winks

 

And Oh oh oh oh oh oh

It hurts to be this alone in a city like Philadelphia

I think I'll take my time crossing the Mason Dixon line

Back to Nashville, TN

And Oh oh oh oh oh oh

And Oh oh oh oh oh oh

 

I'd like to propose a toast / To my lovely host

That is myself / I'll take the glasses from the shelf

I wake well after dark / Your eyes creating a spark

Within my dreams /A smile is never what it seems

 

And oh oh oh oh oh

It hurts to be this alone

On a hallowed New Years Eve

I think I'll take my time

Drown it in stories of wine

And shut my mouth until you leave

Until you leave

 

And oh oh oh oh oh

It hurts to be this alone

In a room full of my friends

I think I'll take my time

Waiting in line

It's just a means now to an end
