"New Years Eve" as written by Brian Mcternan, James Buddy Nielsen, Daniel Gerard Trapp, Garrett Michael Zablocki and Jason Black....
Clip my angel wings
I'm a coward
I'm a liar and a cheat
My vows all mean nothing
I'm weaker than a priest

Board up the windows and lock all the doors
Like a hurricane I'm always given a new name
Board up the windows and lock all the doors
Head for the hills
Get somewhere safe
The further you go the better off you'll be

I'm clear as glass but I can't seem to ever clean
The fingerprints you left on me
I wish every night was new years
So this Irish disease could have company

Who the fuck would want to live forever
When everyday feels like it's been a week
Call on the archers and let down the gate
Hell must be a view of watching everyone you knew
Move on without you like you never lived
I'm just like my father
As lonely as sin
Drinking away
What I've been given

I'm clear as glass by I can't seem to ever clean
The fingerprints you left on me
I wish every night was new years
So this Irish disease could have company

I hate myself for never saying that I want you in my life
But it's not my place to keep on trying to chase a relationship that's not there
But if I don't then I know that you won't even dare

I'm clear as glass but I can't seem to ever clean
The fingerprints you left on me
I wish every night was new years
So this Irish disease could have company

    General CommentI agree that this song could be about his dad,saying that his father is living in hell cause he watches all his family and friends move on and try and forget about him. Also it makes sense that Buddy is upset he didn't tell his dad he wanted him in his life. However I don't understand the chorus very much
