Happy New Year


   A           Bm7
1. No more champagne
   And the fireworks are through
              D           A/C#
   Here we are, me and you 
             Bm7                E9sus4
   Feeling lost and feeling blue
            A               Bm7b5
   It's the end of the party
           A/C#             C#7
   And the morning seems so grey
            D         A/C#
   So unlike yesterday 
             Bm7                Esus4 E
   Now's the time for us to say  

R: Happy new year
   Happy new year
              F#m    D                   F#7
   May we all have a vision now and then 
                                                Bm7 E
   Of a world where every neighbour is a friend   

   Happy new year
   Happy new year
   May we all have our hopes, our will to try 
   If we don't, we might as well lay down and die  
             Bm7 E7
   You and I  

2. Sometimes I see
   How the brave new world arrives
   And I see how it thrives
   In the ashes of our lives
   Oh yes, man is a fool
   And he thinks he´ll be okay
   Dragging on, feet of clay
   Never knowing he´s astray
   Keeps on going anyway

R: Happy new year...

3. Seems to me now
   That the dreams we had before
   Are all dead, nothing more
   Than confetti on the floor
   It´s the end of a decade
   In another ten years time
   Who can say what we´ll find
   What lies waiting down the line
   In the end of eighty-nine
R: Happy new year...
