Lyrics

play All is quiet on New Year's Day.
play A world in white gets underway.
play I want to be with you, be with you night and day.
play Nothing changes on New Year's Day.
play On New Year's Day.

play I... will be with you again.
play I... will be with you again.

play Under a blood-red sky
play A crowd has gathered in black and white
play Arms entwined, the chosen few
play The newspaper says, says
play Say it's true, it's true...
play And we can break through
play Though torn in two
play We can be one.

play I... I will begin again
play I... I will begin again.

play Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.
play Oh, maybe the time is right.
play Oh, maybe tonight.

play I will be with you again.
play I will be with you again.

play And so we are told this is the golden age
play And gold is the reason for the wars we wage
play Though I want to be with you
play Be with you night and day
play Nothing changes
play On New Year's Day
play On New Year's Day
play On New Year's Day
