January 1st

from Calendar by Monk Turner



January 1st I'm starting all over again
Starting a new life in with my revival
I had a lot to lose but now I understand
I had to wait for New Years arrival

I'm gonna walk away from what I was.
I wanna see - what I cam be.
It won't be easy

I've been through - a lot of pain
The loneliness almost drove me insane
It won't be easy

I'm starting over like I thought I would
But moving forward like I know I should
It won't be easy

A resolution for a better year
Becoming clearer as midnight draws near
It won't be easy
