For all of us who have lost loved ones, or just plain had a tough, tough year "watching time go by."
"New Year's Eve" (feat. Railroad Earth)
Next year's gonna be better Next year will surely be the one And it's right around the corner Hell, it's just about begun So what am I still sitting here for When everyone's inside? What am I doing drinking whiskey And looking for a place to hide?
Yeah, old buddy, I sure miss you You and old "What's his name?" And I know if y'all were here now This party wouldn't be so damn lame There'd be dancing, and fighting, And cussing, and laughing Raise our voices to the sky Bring the new year in right Instead of watching time go by
Yeah, sometimes I wonder what The world would be like If I didn't have strangers as my best friends I'm sitting here on new year's Thinking 'bout old friends and old times We'll never see them again
Yeah, sometimes I still wonder what My life would've been like If I didn't have angels at my defense I'm sitting here on new year's Singing 'bout old friends and old times We'll never see them again
But next year's gonna be better Next year will surely be great Well, I guess I should say "This year" Geez, how did it get so late? What am I still sitting here for? When did everybody leave? What am I doing here drinking whiskey? Oh yeah, it's New Year's Eve
