Lyrics

There was a time when we were only seventeen,
And though we'd lay awake at night we could still dream
About the way our lives together would unfold,
But then I blinked and now it seems our story's told.

Happy New Year, Darling -
Has it really been a year since the last one?
Oh, I can't believe how time flies by,
So while the champagne's sparkling
I'll raise my glass to you - Happy New Year.

But then again maybe the story never ends
When two young lovers end as two old friends.
And though the years fly by, I guess we're young at heart,
And so our story grows - this day is just the start.

Happy New Year, Darling -
Has it really been a year since the last one?
Oh, I can't believe how time flies by,
So while the champagne's sparkling
I'll raise my glass to you - Happy New Year.

What's in a year in anyone's life, my friend?
Seasons may come and seasons will end.
We have our memories of New Years gone by
So let's get out and celebrate!

Happy New Year, Darling -
Has it really been a year since the last one?

Happy New Year, Darling (Happy New Year) -
Has it really been a year (Has it really been a year) since the last one?
Oh, I can't believe how time flies by,
So while the champagne's sparkling
I'll raise my glass to you - Happy New Year.

I can't believe how time flies by,
So while the champagne's sparkling
I'll raise my glass to you - Happy New Year, Happy New Year.
