Mary Chapin Carpenter - New Years Day Lyrics


We are sitting on a table in a bar in Baltimore,
Itís the last night of December and the moon is beautiful.
And the front door pulls a draft in every time it opens wide.
And you are telling me your story from another time and life.

And the waitress brings our order
And weíre tucked in mighty clothes
And I feel like we belong among the living and these ghosts.
And I know that Iím dreaming, Ďcause I memorized each part.
And the telling lies are revery and the details lie behind.

Like the folds of summer dresses, like the scent upon my wrist
Like the way you play guitar like a box of punches with his fist.
And taking all thatís lost in me itís better not to say
Iím dwelling the possibility on a New Yearís day.

Is it you pack sore band, stand and we own another round
And the nightís just getting started or the nightís just winding down.
Your stories are not clouded yet, by the end or by the chain.
They just make me feel as if Iíve known you all my life again.

Like the folds of summer dresses, like the scent upon my wrist
Like the way you play guitar like a box of punches with his fist.
And taking all thatís lost in me itís better not to say
Iím dwelling the possibility on a New Yearís day.

And this is what it looked like when we started walking home,
The night sky bleeched to silver against this cityís palms.
And dreams are in our waking, Iím stressed enough to say
Buffen grace and endless flows be ours on New Yearís day.

And the folds of summer dresses and the bangles on my wrists
And the way you play guitar like a box of punches with his fist.
And taking all just lost to us itís better not say
Weíre drowling possibilities on a New Yearís day.
