​New Year's Eve (I Can Barely Hear It)

This song is by Bill Mallonee and appears on the album WPA Vol. 12 Songs For The Journey & Beyond (2012).

Glass empties out... last grains run through
Out with the old... ring in the new
Time to ante-up... time to pay dues
But every time I find... ain't no nearer to you

There's a pulse, that's true... but the breathing comes in fits
If you're callin' my name... If you're still callin my name...
I can barely... hear... it...

So you try to believe... you pray and pray
My feet struck out... on the narrow way
Try as I would... try as I might
I couldn't find my name... in the book of life

Came out of a storm... came out of a dream
It all looks so easy... at 17
Ah, but the skin yer in... could surely use some help
Yer bound to wind up... hatin' yourself

Last call sounds... drain the cup
You know I don't know why... it ain't ever enough
Another new year... more hallowed ground
I hope your arms are there... when I leave this town
