Happy New Year!

Here’s a New Years present for you! A cover of Death Cab For Cutie’s “The New Year.” Of course I don’t claim to be better (who’s better than Ben Gibbard?). But, I have added my own twist to it. Make sure you read the last blog entry so you know the context of the song.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

The New Year (In The Distance)
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 (it’s in the distance).

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 dialogs 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 could hold us back.

There’d be no distance that could hold us back…

So this is the new year
And I may not feel any different
But if I let God in
Things will change

It’s in the distance….
He’s in the distance….
Nothing’s gonna hold us back….
He’s in the distance….

So this is the new year
And I may not feel any different
But He’s in the distance…..
