Track Name: It's New Year's (Or Never)
I was hanging from the balcony
of the hotel bar.
My night was such a blur
before I fell in your arms
nothing short of perfect
for a broken heart.

Running out of options
saw the sky turn grey.
No time for resolutions
maybe clear my name,
but your plans caught my attention
as I helped you with your things.

Do you keep your night caps near your family's tree?
You hushed my mouth and told me not to speak.
I know we might have met in a strange way,
but we need this, need this like a holiday
Because it's...

New Year's or never
I wanna be the one you forget to remember
it's New Year's or never,
never again
For what its worth
I never really cared for midnight
and clearly we both know
this isn't love at first sight.
It's New Year's or never,
never again

Our feet were soaked in dirty snow
you asked if I could take you home.
Shared a sip of something warm
to keep us from harm.
Better than having dinner on our own
So we shared a cab
into the dark.
My only other option
was to sleep in the park.
The fireworks started,
but we, didn't stay
We were minutes to midnight,
but one stroke away.
The way you took your coffee
made me stop and think,
is this really fate
or something in my drink?
That had me waking up
next to your parents' bathroom sink.
Cause it was...

New Year's or never
I wanna be the one you forget to remember
New year's or never,
never again.
For what its worth,
I never really cared for midnight.
And for the record,
this was never love at first sight.
New Year's or never,
...never again.
