Brand New Day

Lyrics

playHow many of you people out there
playBeen hurt in some kind of love affair
playAnd how many times
playDid you swear that you'd never love again

playHow many lonely, sleepless nights
playHow many lies, how many fights
playAnd why would you want
playTo put yourself through all of that again?

play"Love is pain," I hear you say
playLove is a cruel and bitter way
playOf paying you back for
playAll the faith you ever had in your brain

playHow could it be that what you need the most
playCan leave you feeling just like a ghost?
playYou never want to feel so sad and lost again

playOne day you could be looking
playThrough an old book in rainy weather
playYou see a picture of her smiling at you
playWhen you were still together
playYou could be walking down the street
playAnd who should you chance to meet
playBut that same old smile
playYou've been thinking of all day

playWhy don't we turn the clock to zero, honey
playI'll sell the stock,
playWe'll spend all the money
playWe're starting up a brand new day

playTurn the clock all the way back
playI wonder if she'll take me back
playI'm thinking in a brand new way

playTurn the clock to zero, sister
playYou'll never know how much I missed her
playI'm starting up a brand new day

playTurn the clock to zero, boss
playThe river's wide, we'll swim across
playWe started up a brand new day

playIt could happen to you
playJust like it happened to me
playThere's simply no immunity,
playThere's no guarantee
playI say love is such a force
playIf you find yourself in it, babe
playYou need some time for reflection

playYou say, baby, wait a minute, wait a minute
playWait a minute, wait a minute
playWait a minute, wait a minute

playYou can turn the clock to zero, honey
playI'll sell the stock,
playwe'll spend all the money
playWe're starting up a brand new day

playTurn the clock to zero, Mac
playI'm begging her to take me back
playI'm thinking in a brand new way

playTurn the clock to zero, boss
playThe river's wide, we'll swim across
playWe started up a brand new day

playTurn the clock to zero, buddy
playDon't wanna be no fuddy-duddy
playWe started up a brand new day

playI'm the rhythm in your tune
playI'm the sun and you're the moon
playI'm a bat and you're the cave
playYou're the beach and I'm the wave
playI'm the plough and you're the land
playYou're the glove and I'm the hand
playI'm the train and you're the station
playI'm a flagpole to your nation – yeah

playStand up all you lovers in the world
playStand up and be counted every boy and every girl
playStand up all you lovers in the world
playWe're starting up a brand new day
playYou're the crop to my rotation
