Song Lyric Sunday – New Year’s Day by Pentatonix

It’s no secret that I’m in love with these guys. They are pretty much the only music I listen to lately besides the Hamilton musical.

I’ve been waiting to post this particular song because it’s so fitting for the time of year. It’s also beautiful. It brings tears to my eyes every time I listen to it. There’s just something so poetic about letting the past go and starting fresh. Equally poetic is the “celebration of moments to come.”

I know I’ve pretty much abandoned my blog lately, but I’m finally done with the crochet projects and am ready to get back to writing. I miss it so much!

I’m wishing you all a safe and fantastic new year celebration with my Song Lyric Sunday. Feel free to read the “rules” below and join in with a selection of your own.

New Year’s Day by Pentatonix
Lyrics found at AZ Lyrics

Tonight, the apple falls in Time
We’ll sing along with Auld Lang Syne
And throw confetti high up into space
Tomorrow morning when we wake
This town will be a different place
And the past will wash away like coffee stains

We could be kings of the world
On top of the nation
It’s a celebration of the moments to come
The city’s on fire
We’re holding up lighters
Raising them higher and we’ve only begun

Take me all the way
Hear me when I say
Let’s kiss the past away
Like New Year’s Day
Take me all the way
Hear me when I say
It’s time to celebrate
Like New Year’s Day

Another year will dim devine
We’ll play it back in slow rewind
And laugh about the cold and bitter nights
We’re route our way on maps of stars
Hold on tight to fragile hearts
And keep our friends forever by our side

We could be kings of the world
On top of the nation
It’s a celebration of the moments to come
The city’s on fire
We’re holding up lighters
Raising them higher and we’ve only begun

Take me all the way
Hear me when I say
Let’s kiss the past away
Like New Year’s Day
Take me all the way
Hear me when I say
It’s time to celebrate
Like New Year’s Day

Morning breaks, take my hand
Wide awake with arms wide open
Catch your breath, walk this way
No regrets on New Year’s Day
Morning breaks, take my hand
(Kings of the world, top of the nation)
Wide awake with arms wide open
(It’s a celebration of the moments to come)
Catch your breath, walk this way
(City’s on fire, holding up lighters)
No regrets on New Year’s Day
(Raising them higher, we’ve only begun)

We could be kings of the world
On top of the nation
It’s a celebration of the moments to come
The city’s on fire
We’re holding up lighters
Raising them higher and we’ve only begun

Take me all the way
Hear me when I say
Let’s kiss the past away
Like New Year’s Day
Take me all the way
Hear me when I say
It’s time to celebrate
Like New Year’s Day

  2. New song to me! Time to get thinking. A New Year’s song, hummm.
    Sorry ’bout last week — had a song picked out, but never finished the blog post.
    Hope you had a good Christmas, and I look forward to you being more active with your writing in 2016.
