LYRICS:

Like New Year's Day

It looks like rain
And that's fine with me
it's like we've been living
On the sun lately
I want to dance
With your wet skin
As the world disappears
And daylight ends
You're perfect air
Like New Year's Day
And like New Year's Day
We go away
I say your name
I cross my heart
I'd be forsaken
If we were to part

I'm not faking
I'm not stealing
I'm in love with a feeling
I'm not faking
I'm not stealing
I'm in love with a feeling
I've learned the hard way
It's hard to make love stay
But if we could
Then we should
If you'd agree
To stay with me
If only you would
Then that'd be good

An airplane glides
Over frozen hills
A vapor trail
There's ice on the sill
But here's it's warm
And she's downstairs
I think I'll stop
And go down there
We'll pour some tea
She'll smile at me
A spoonful of salt
With pure honey
A metaphor
For dark with light
It's always dusk
But that's alright

I'm not faking
I'm not stealing
I'm in love with a feeling
I'm not faking
I'm not stealing
I'm in love with a feeling
I've learned the hard way
It's hard to make love stay
But if we could
Then we should
If you'd agree
To stay with me
If only you would
Then that'd be...
I'm not faking
I'm not stealing
I'm in love with a feeling
I've learned the hard way
It's hard to make love stay
But if we could
Then we should
If you'd agree
To stay with me
If only you would
Then that'd be...
If only you would
If only you would
If only you would
Then that'd be good
