new year’s eve lyrics – first aid kit

new year’s eve

well it’s a new year, with it comes more than new fears.
met a young man who was in tears, he asked me,
“what induces us to stay here?”
i said, “i don’t know much and i’m not lying,
but i think you just have to keep on trying.”

and i know i am naive, but if anything
that’s what’s going to save me
that’s what’s going to save me

took a stroll around the neighborhood where the trees are swaying.
people p*ssed in cars with their windows down, with a pop song playing.
a man walked by, walking back and forth the street with a drunken smile to go along.
he stopped to look at me and say, “child, don’t fear doing things wrong.”

yet i am still afraid but if anything
that’s what’s going to save me
that’s what’s going to save me

now i have a lot to learn and i’m starting tonight,
got to stop looking at things like they’re black and they’re white.
got to write more songs of a little more, treat my friends better.
got to stop worrying about everything to the letter.
and sometimes when it’s too hard to get up,
it just might be a little call apart.

but i find it hard to believe, but if anything
that’s what’s going to save me
that’s what’s going to save me

tell me, tell me
oh, what’s going to save me?
