Song Lyric

English text

 

 

 

All is quiet

on New Year’s Day

A world in white gets underway.

 

I want to be with you night and day

Nothing changes on New Year’s Day

I will be with you again.

 

Under a blood red sky

A crowd has gathered in black and white

Arms entwined, the chosen few.

 

The newspaper says it’s true

And we can break through

Though torn in two

We can be one. 

I will begin again

And maybe the time is right

Maybe tonight

I will be with you again.

 

And so we are told

this is the golden age

And gold is the reason for the wars

we wage

 

Though I want to be with you night and day

Nothing changes on New Year’s Day.

..
