Standing at a crossroad, snow falling down.
Misery loves company and a companion could be found.
What started as a conquest had ended in defeat.
The way we were, the things we said, and all I won't repeat.

New Year's Eve ain't all it's cracked up to be.
I've seen the best and heard the worst and everything in between.
Eighteen hours is such a long, long time
And the sting of painful words destroy us inside.
Our silence can say so much and our words pack a painful punch.
Nothing can take away the memories of that day
And I was so sure that we'd fade away.
Fade away.

Adversity makes us stronger
so can we make this last a little longer?
Can we put aside the competition that resides in all of us,
In all of us?
I know it's in me and I've seen it in you,
But I set my sights on seeing this one through.
I am gonna see it through.
I know that we'll never fully agree,
But it's worth my time and it's worth the risk
Because this is family.
