The Walkmen In the New Year Lyrics

Oh, I'm still living
At the old address
And I'm waiting on the weather
That I know will pass

I know that it's true
It's gonna be a good year
Out of the darkness
And into the fire
I tell you I love you
And my heart's in the strangest place
That's how it started
And that's how it ends

Yeah I know you're with me
It's a point of pride
And it's louder than lightning
In this room of mine

Oh, I'm just like you
I never hear the bad news
And I never will
We won by a landslide
Our troubles are over
My sisters are married
To all of my friends
Yeah, that's how it started

You took your sweet time
And I waited by, without complaint
'Till all the pipe dreams made me insane

So it's all over
It's all over anyhow
You took your sweet time
Finally I opened my eyes

My friends and my family
They are asking me
"How long will you ramble?"
How long can you stay with me?
The snow is still falling
I'm almost home
I'll see you in the new year
