11:55 (Song for New Year’s)

hey look – it’s 11:55
and this party’s still alive
grab another drink while the time goes by

see the hands – they’re reaching up to twelve
and soon they’ll sound the bells
make a joyful noise as the year goes by

(bridge)
time keeps slipping past without a sound
creeps away and then creeps back around

hey wait – it’s 11:58
pretty soon it’ll be too late
grab another kiss before the time goes by

see these hands – they’re reaching out to you
soon this party will be through
no fun to be alone while the time goes by

(bridge)
soon the sun will rise on another year
another trip around this vale of joys & tears

sweeping the confetti off the floor
things are as they were before
just a little bit more time gone by
time gone by
time gone by…
