Another Year Gone by kathyinwaikoloa published on 2020-02-01T18:07:20Z This song is the result of a challenge to write one song every week given a key word or words. The words were "strange days." The snow is falling on New Year’s Eve, It’s the same old crowd; the same old scene. I feel kind of foolish just standing around When I see you walk in, alone. And suddenly, the sky is blue. I dream of the words I’d say to you. We’d kiss at midnight, And toast to the year. I can see it all happen, it’s crystal clear. Finally, our eyes meet, and we share a smile. I’m seeing the two of us walk down the aisle. And while I’m thinking of something to say, You leave with a girl with a beautiful face. And suddenly, the sky turned gray. I tuck in my dreams for another day. No kiss at midnight, No toast to the year. Instead, you’ll be kissing that beautiful girl. Strange how the years seem to fall off the page. How the days, then the years, seem to fall off the page. Another year gone, and I haven’t changed. New Year’s Eve, And I’m still the same me.
