New Century

Tekst og musik af Kirstine Birk

We are in a hurry
To catch the bus in time
On our way to celebrate the next century

Stumbling over the last minutes
Doesn’t leave us time to think
About what we are leaving behind

We don’t need no firecrackers
We just wish upon a star
I’ve got bobbles of champagne in my blood

Now we are waiting at this buss stop
It’s New Years Eve
Nineteen hundred-and-a-thousand years

We can celebrate the years gone by
And the years to come
Just you and I
Stuck at this buss stop

We can celebrate the years gone by
And the years to come
Just you and I
Stuck at this buss stop
Between one century and the next one

Gee, it’s past midnight
The world doesn’t seem to change
There’s still the same pale light from the lamppost

We didn’t catch the bus in time
The evening will just fizzle out like a damp squib
We don’t need no count down for the beginning of a new time

We don’t need no fireworks
My lips are burning just for you
And this silence is telling me we are the only ones around

We can celebrate the years gone by
And the years to come
Just you and I
Stuck at this buss stop

We can celebrate the years gone by
And the years to come
Just you and I
Stuck at this buss stop
Between one century and the next one
