Happy New Year's Day
you're sitting in the dark sucking candy canes
wishing that the aspirin was Novocain
and dishing on, about last year's days
while the dishes aren't doing themselves

Now, you're seeing things
floating in a bottle of green champagne,
the touchdown you scored in 11th grade
the claps on your back, and the bouncing braids
I guess you were always seeing things

When the ball came down
joy to the city you can't live in right now
You're not even sure you'd ever quite know how
the music box lights up midtown
but do they ever put those cameras away?

Now, you can't see why
you shouldn't start a bar fight on this quiet night
winking at the people through your bruised black eye
and start the whole hospital screaming,
"You shouda seen the other guy."

January 1,
'cause I lost another year when you were under my thumb
I'm just a recollection of the man I've become
I'm just a reflection of some coach and his son
January won

It's a given thing
that floating in a bottle of green champagne
the rim's ten feet high in the 11th grade
and it's hard to resent what choose not to stay,
so Happy New Year's Day
