Glasses raised, we all say "cheers."
could this be the one? Our New Year.
Even after all this time, I don't know why,
Why you went away

Lately I'm sure it's
You there, waving
In the distance

Closer, the closer I get
Disappointment tails,
Yes it tails

They just have the same color of your hair.

You're not there

Every corner that I turn
I've convinced myself
One day you'll be there

Choruses of Auld Lang Syne
Could this be the year?
Yours and mine?

Lately I'm sure it's
You there, waving
In the distance

Closer, the closer I get
Disappointment tails,
yes it tails

They just have the same
Color of your hair

You're not there

Glasses raised we all say "cheers."
Could this be the one?
This could be the one.
Could this be the one?
Our new year.

    General CommentShe said in an interview with Bizarre magazine it's about looking back and reflecting on people not in your life anymore...I think that's pretty obvious, too.
