Lyrics

In the dark of the darkroom all of the liars come in through light
And I walk among the liars out of the daybreak, out of the spark

Ten years ago we were walking down the road
I had my hand in my pocket, you had your arm on my shoulder
We made our way through the dark through the cold
We made our way to the fire where we would never get older
In a wooden frame under a glass pane we’re still the same

And we talk every so often, we find the light between the shadows
And bathed in blue light from a screen, it’s not exactly where we thought we’d be

But that’s how it goes for strange bedfellows ten years down the road

We put a record on, we lit a cigarette,
We opened up our bottles of beer and champagne
Then we toasted to the end of the year
It was a hell of a year, it was stupid insane
Happy New Year, Happy New Year, Happy New Year, Happy New Year, Happy New Year,
Happy New Year, Happy New Year is what we still say every year on the same stupid day
Happy New Year, singing Auld Lang Syne with a casual note as to how time flies
When you’re staring at a photograph you’ve got a memory in your mind
Oh I can tell you, friend of mine, when I see you again
We’re gonna have ourselves one hell of a time

Happy New Year Happy New Year, Happy New Year, Happy New Year, Happy New Year, Happy New Year, Happy New Year, Happy New Year, Happy New Year

Well I’m staring at a photograph, I got a memory in my mind
I can tell you, friend of mine, when I see you again
We’re gonna have ourselves one hell of a time
