Now the cold is creeping through walls and through skin
There’s an old year that’s dying, a new one begins
So we count or losses and think back to when
We had no sense of how time was pulling us in

Day by day, year by year

So we make a promise to live life as if
Everyday is our last one, ‘cause someday it is
Still the cold is creeping through hearts and through veins
So we dance to get warmer and drink more champagne

Say a prayer, raise your glass
Say hello to a new year that’s soon to pass
