lyrics

New Year’s day up at the lake
Winter greys out on the ice
I am lost; I have not weathered well
But I have breath in clouds I can peer through
I see the crows are coming
down from the frozen hills
But yonder more the valley floor
Looks soft and warm and still
I am just one man standing here
This is just one man’s will
Is that enough, New Year?
8lb chain hung round my neck
Orion’s gaze low in the sky
I am gone but I will be back when
New Year’s day again comes a-calling
I see the crows are coming
down from the frozen hills
But yonder more the valley floor
Looks soft and warm and still
I am just one man standing here
This is just one man’s will
Is that enough, New Year?
Ready or not, New Year
