"A New Life" as written by Helena Louise Springs, Christopher Lowe and Neil Francis Tennant....
At night it hits me cold
There's so much more to life than I'll ever know
I look around and I realize
It's time to make a move though you won't sympathize

Stars collect overhead
They look down on the channel and our lives grown dead
Cars pass on through the night
How do you get to heaven if you never try?

[Chorus]
New life, new love
Where's the heart I was dreaming of?
I need a new hope, new dream
Another heart in a different scene

Make a firm decision; it's time to go
That's for you to find out and for me to know
No more hard times or petty crimes
Forget that life I have left behind

The night goes by
Leaving you behind me, as I fly
Then rise, the day and night sky
How do you get to heaven if you never try?

[Chorus]

A new life, it's so hard to find
A new love, it's so hard to find

The night goes by
Leaving you behind me, as I fly
There lies the day in that sky
How do you get to heaven if you never try?

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentI think this is a lovely song, and I can really relate to the feelings in it - the longing to get a new life and find love etc and just run away into the night. It has a really expressive melody, and Neil sings it so well, with such feeling. It is well produced too, and really atmospheric. I never could understand the critics saying PSB are deadpan...

    General Commenti love this song, i think the lyrics are about longing to find new friends relationships etc and to leave the boredom of your current life behind you and just start again. a very beautiful haunting song :)
