"New Year" as written by Matt Rowe, Cameron Andrew Mcvey, Jonathan David Lipsey, Felix Starbuck Howard and Sugarbabes,....
Sitting here stressing at 2:30am
About how fast the year can go
I wonder where it went
If we start all over again, would it really work
I know that you could be, could be, coming back to me

Mesmerized, but of thoughts of fear
Traumatized, I'm so scared to feel
Want to stop thinking gotta get to sleep
Gotta wake up fresh, get on my feet
Push the thought of you away
Do it today

I'm older than my years
Drowning in my tears
Surrounded by the fear
Since you went away, a year ago
At Christmas

You locked away your secrets
Kept them away from me
I only came to say goodbye, now you finally see
You want to start all over again, make it work this time
But I don't want to end up feeling far away from fine

I memorized, what you said to me
So surprised, it was hell to be
So frustrated with the way we were
Not a single word could make it work
Now look at us today
We blew it away

I'm older than my years
Drowning in my tears
Surrounded by the fear
Since you went away, a year ago
At Christmas

    General CommentMe either heaterlouise. I think the lyrics sum the meaning of the song up perfectly. It's such a beautiful song and the vocals are amazing. It's my favourite sugababes song.

    General CommentThis song to me is about despite how quick time has gone, the person still isn't over their past relationship, no matter how much they try or pretend things are fine, they're not.
    They are still considering and thinking about a second chance.
    "I'm older than my years"
    "Traumatised, I'm so scared to feel"
    this in my opinion means the experience of the relationship made them more mature and because of that, they're scared to get close to someone again.
