"New Year" as written by and Siobhan/buena Donaghy....
I'm running 'round in circles
Trying to find some peace of mind
'Cause it's a lonely place when
All that we need we cannot find
Wait, wait, 'cause I don't wanna be lost
Wait, Wait, 'cause I don't wanna be lost
And I don't wanna be the one to drag you down

Wait
For a new day, for a new year
I'll be standing on my own
In a new place, with my hands out
Looking for the answers

It's such a sweet solution
To close our eyes and walk in line
And all our contributions
Just seem to fade away with time
Wait, wait, 'cause I don't wanna be lost
Wait, Wait, 'cause I don't wanna be lost
And I don't wanna be the one to drag you down

I can't stand here, waiting
With my hands out, for the ceiling
But I won't lie, I won't try
I can't walk such a straight line
And these bright lights, surround me
People are so friendly
But I won't lie, I won't try
I can't pretend that it's alright

Wait
For a new day, for a new year
I'll be standing on my own
In a new place, with my hands out
Looking for the answers
Write down your name (x4)

    General CommentObviously this guy is desperately looking for love. "Cause it's a lonely place when all that we need we cannot find." He's tired of looking "I won't try," because we all know looking for love just doesn't work. All he can do is close his eyes, walk in line and live his life with his "hands out" for someone to "write down their name." After all, every new day and every new year brings new possibilities.
