And Your eyes are like a waterfall tonight
I could dive right in
But I'd soon drown and die
I'm not gonna make it
I'm not gonna last
The currents to strong
And The rivers to fast
So I'm letting go
Alright?

What's the point of holding on
When logic fails
I'm the captain of a ship beyond repair
I've given up slowly
Swimming upstream
I'm tired of being tired and lonely
I'm yours for the taking

Well it's bittersweet
To be incomplete
On New Years Eve
I guess honestly
There's a part of me
That just wants to go to sleep

It's a tradgey
To be incomplete
On New Years Eve
I'd have everything
I could ever need
If you'd just come back to me
Come back to me

I feel colder than the icicles outside
And my mind in circles
Like your colored blinking lights
I'm drowning my sorrows
Well/While they're drowning me
I wanted to celebrate happily free
But your ghost just won't let me

Well it's bittersweet
To be incomplete
On New Years Eve
I guess honestly
There's a part of me
That just wants to go to sleep

It's a tradgey
To be incomplete
On New Years Eve
I'd have everything
I could ever need
If you'd just come back to me


If this is my new years
A new year without you I'm resolute
My resolution is proving that I'm still the one for you
Christmas was just a disaster
With only your memory
So baby please show me that I'm still the gift
That you'd want to keep


Well it's bittersweet
To be incomplete
On New Years Eve
I guess honestly
There's a part of me
That just wants to go to sleep

It's a tradgey
To be incomplete
On New Years Eve
I'd have everything
I could ever need
If you'd just come back to me

    Early Spring 2004... Chris Evenson begins working on new music, for what he isn’t sure but he writes over an album’s worth of new material in the waning moments of his decade long band, Sense Field, and the outpouring of material continues well past Sense Field’s official demise in January of 2004.

    Brett Detar, of The Juliana Theory and with whom Sense Field had toured in the past, coincidentally connects with Chris right at the moment when the music has begun to take shape. The two realize they have both been looking for a side project - something free form, something with no expectations and something that doesn’t have to fit the framework of either of their current or past bands.

    The first song from the pairing, who refer to this new project as Belasana, is “Bittersweet Eve,” a song written for “Maybe This Christmas Tree,” a holiday album also including Death Cab For Cutie, Pedro The Lion, The Polyphonic Spree and others. For this song, Brett writes the lyrics and sings and Chris creates and plays the music. Where Belasana goes next is open-ended, just like Brett and Chris want it. One thing is certain, there will be more music...
