Headlights are coming faster.
I step on the accelerator, moving the car down the road.
Snowflakes are coming faster.
You're heart is beating harder.
Don't fret my dear, I'll get us home.

The highway is icing over.
There's cars stalled out on the shoulder.
I hope to God that we don't die.

Visibility is getting weaker.
This is the first drive of the New Year.
We didn't stay at the party, last night.

I know what you're thinkin.
I know what you're gonna say.
Just wait till I get us home safe.

This New Year’s looking better.
The world’s beautiful in this weather.
Everything is calm and clean.

Another minute and I’ll have us home.
You fell asleep about an hour ago.
You look so calm when you dream.

Sit on the stoop of a humble abode.
Drinking coffee you like when the weather is cold
And you know you’re alive with your breath in the air.
Though your eyes are still closed, there’s snow in your hair.
The sun has gone down,
And the lights that we see are the ones in your eyes while you’re looking at me
And I love you today like the first time I ever saw you.

I know what you're thinkin.
I know what you're gonna say.
Just wait till I get us home safe.

Tell me stories about the New Year and what you resolve to do for yourself.
I’ll smile and tell you mine.

If you ever feel scared like you’re floating in air
And you’re watching your life from your favorite chair,
Take a deep breath.
Leave things up to me.

We’ll take our money and run to the streets on London.
Take a ferry across to the side of the pond.
We’ll Disappear and vanish from the map.
