Lyrics

New Year's Day Words and music by Zerafina Zara
You wake up on the couch again
Barely moving, barely breathing
If you've got nine lives, you're down to number five
yeah, but you're still here

Your sink is piled high with dishes
Got a mailbox full of bills
All your dreams came with conditions
'Cause you never read the fine-print
And it feels like you're cycling,
Cycling up hill

There's nowhere else to go
So turn on your radio
And dance like it's New Year's Day
Dance like it's New Year's Day

It's time to decide if we're half-dead or half-alive
Come on and dance
Dance like it's New Year's Day

It's the sparkling in a plastic cup
Back-yard party makes you smile
It's the kind words that build you up
And help you leave your heartache behind

It's your friends that make you tap your feet
Rhythm seeps down to your bones
Now you're here you're so relieved
And you know you're home
When Sally sings into the beer-bottle microphone

There's nowhere else to go
So turn on your radio
And dance like it's New Year's Day
Dance like it's New Year's Day

It's time to decide if we're half-dead or half-alive
Come on and dance
Dance like it's New Year's Day

Oh, I understand
We all have trouble
But we can two-step around it
'Cause we've got each other
So come and take my hand
And we'll dance

Like it's New Year's Day
Dance like it's New Year's Day
It's time to decide if we're half-dead of half-alive
C'mon and dance
Dance
Like it's New Year's Day
Dance like it's New Year's Day
Dance like it's New Year's Day
