New Years Day by U2

One of my favourite New Year songs is New Years Day by U2. Originally released in 1983, it’s a timeless song that longs for a peaceful future.

Today English Teacher Online invites you to study the lyrics, trusting that you’ll be renewed with energy to build a better world.

New Years Day Lyrics by U2

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

I will be with you again
I will be with you again

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

I…I will begin again
I…I will begin again

Oh…
Maybe the time is right
Oh…maybe tonight…

I will be with you again
I will be with you again

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

What dreams and goals do you have for the new year?
