The New Year
Death Cab for Cutie Lyrics


So this is the new year
And I don't feel any different
The clanking of crystal
Explosions off in the distance (in the distance)

So this is the new year
And I have no resolutions
For self assigned penance
For problems with easy solutions

So everybody put your best suit or dress on
Let's make believe that we are wealthy for just this once
Lighting firecrackers off on the front lawn
As thirty dialogues bleed into one

I wish the world was flat like the old days
Then I could travel just by folding a map
No more airplanes, or speed trains, or freeways
There'd be no distance that can hold us back

There'd be no distance that could hold us back
There'd be no distance that could hold us back
There'd be no distance that could hold us back

So this is the new year
So this is the new year
So this is the new year
So this is the new year

Happy 2021 everyone. Here's hoping that the New Year feels at least a little different for us all.

Kathryn LaFrance

This song just hits differently this year.

@TobermoryIscarabaidX I have the same tradition and I agree with you. It just feels different like we missed a year. Idk if that's just me.

It’s a tradition for me to play this song every year. It feels a little lonelier than it normally does. :/

TobermoryIscarabaidX

Hmm. Different because of the fear of a 2020 redux?🤔

Roy Gibson

The first song I listen to every year, but this year it's a different fish.

There hasn't been a single New Year's Eve since 2009 that I haven't listened to this song. What a phenomenal track.

Nicholas Bourlotos

Same, today, and never harder than 2020.

Laurel O'Donnell

Same!
