The New Year – lyrics

 
The New Year – by Death Cab For Cutie
 
So this is the New Year
And i don’t feel any different
The clanking of crystal
Explosions off in the distance
 
So this is the New Year
And I have no resolutions
For self assigned penance
For problems with easy solutions
 
So everybody put your best suit or dress on
Let’s make believe that we are wealthy for just this once
Lighting firecrackers off on the front lawn
As thirty dialogs bleed into one
 
I wish the world was flat like the old days
Then i could travel just by folding a map
No more airplanes, or speed trains, or freeways
There’d be no distance that could hold us back
 
There’d be no distance that could hold us back
