"New Year's Eve" as written by Klara Maria S�derberg and Johanna Kajsa S�derberg....
Well it's a new year, with it comes more than new fears.
Met a young man who was in tears, he asked me,
"What induces us to stay here?"
I said, "I don't know much and I'm not lying,
But I think you just have to keep on trying."

And I know I am naive, but if anything
That's what's going to save me
That's what's going to save me

Took a stroll around the neighborhood where the trees are swaying.
People passed in cars with their windows down, with a pop song playing.
A man walked by, walking back and forth the street with a drunken smile to go along.
He stopped to look at me and say, "Child, don't fear doing things wrong."

Yet I am still afraid but if anything
That's what's going to save me
That's what's going to save me

Now I have a lot to learn and I'm starting tonight,
Got to stop looking at things like they're black and they're white.
Got to write more songs of a little more, treat my friends better.
Got to stop worrying about everything to the letter.
And sometimes when it's too hard to get up,
It just might be a little call apart.

But I find it hard to believe, but if anything
That's what's going to save me
That's what's going to save me

Tell me, tell me
Oh, what's going to save me?

    Lyric CorrectionI have a few corrections:

    "with it comes new hope and new fears"
    "He stopped to look at me and said" (it's small, I know, but for the sake of accuracy)
    "Got to write more songs love a little more"

    This is a lovely song, about the abstract missing characteristics we think are keeping us from living life to the fullest, and maybe the futility of constantly searching for those things instead of enjoying what we have.
