N is for New Year’s Day

My favorite U2 song that begins with N is New Year’s Day. It used to be one of my top five favorite U2 songs, but it has now dropped down to the top ten – maybe even a little lower than that. In those early days of being a U2 fan, New Year’s Day was one I loved and listened to over and over again – a highlight of Red Rocks. I have to admit that one of the reasons I loved New Year’s Day so much was that another favorite October led into it. It was sort of like one song to me. Throughout the years, I really enjoy and get excited when it’s played in concert. And of course, I play it every New Year’s Day.

All is quiet on New Year’s Day.
A world in white gets underway.
I want to be with you, be with you night and day.
Nothing changes on New Year’s Day.
On New Year’s Day.
I… will be with you again.
I… will be with you again.
Under a blood-red sky
A crowd has gathered in black and white
Arms entwined, the chosen few
The newspaper says, says
Say it’s true, it’s true…
And we can break through
Though torn in two
We can be one.
I… I will begin again
I… I will begin again.
Oh, oh. Oh, oh. Oh, oh.
Oh, maybe the time is right.
Oh, maybe tonight.
I will be with you again.
I will be with you again.
And so we are told this is the golden age
And gold is the reason for the wars we wage
Though I want to be with you
Be with you night and day
Nothing changes
On New Year’s Day
On New Year’s Day
On New Year’s Day
