"Our New Year" as written by and Tori Ellen Amos.
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 is, tears, tails
Yes it is, tears, tails
They just had the same color of your hair

You're not there
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 me ?

Lately I'm sure it's you there, waving
In the distance
Closer
The closer I get
Disappointment is, tears, tails
Yes it is, tears, tails
They just had the same colour of your hair

You're not there
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.

    General CommentI read some speculation that this is about her brother who was killed in a car accident in 2006.
