Brand New Day

Lyrics

play How many of you people out there
play Been hurt in some kind of love affair
play And how many times
play Did you swear that you'd never love again

play How many lonely, sleepless nights
play How many lies, how many fights
play And why would you want
play To put yourself through all of that again?

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

play How could it be that what you need the most
play Can leave you feeling just like a ghost?
play You never want to feel so sad and lost again

play One day you could be looking
play Through an old book in rainy weather
play You see a picture of her smiling at you
play When you were still together
play You could be walking down the street
play And who should you chance to meet
play But that same old smile
play you've been thinking of all day

play Why don't we turn the clock to zero, honey
play I'll sell the stock,
play we'll spend all the money
play We're starting up a brand new day

play Turn the clock all the way back
play I wonder if she'll take me back
play I'm thinking in a brand new way

play Turn the clock to zero, sister
play You'll never know how much I missed her
play I'm starting up a brand new day

play Turn the clock to zero, boss
play The river's wide, we'll swim across
play We started up a brand new day

play It could happen to you
play just like it happened to me
play There's simply no immunity,
play there's no guarantee
play I say love is such a force
play if you find yourself in it, babe
play You need some time for reflection

play You say, baby, wait a minute, wait a minute
play Wait a minute, wait a minute
play Wait a minute, wait a minute

play You can turn the clock to zero, honey
play I'll sell the stock,
play we'll spend all the money
play We're starting up a brand new day

play Turn the clock to zero, Mac
play I'm begging her to take me back
play I'm thinking in a brand new way

play Turn the clock to zero, boss
play The river's wide, we'll swim across
play We started up a brand new day

play Turn the clock to zero, buddy
play Don't wanna be no fuddy-duddy
play We started up a brand new day

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

play Stand up all you lovers in the world
play Stand up and be counted every boy and every girl
play You're the wound and I'm the suture
play We're starting up a brand new day
play You're the crop to my rotation
