​Like New Year's Day

This song is by Sara Watkins and appears on the album Young in All the Wrong Ways (2016).

Original video
On a quiet night driving out to Harriet's again
To breathe the air and soothe my mind
A stranger might get lost out in the emptiness
If he don't know how to read the signs

If Harriet isn't there I let myself in
'Cause when she's gone, she's gone for awhile
I'll stay a couple days, this is just a little trip
To get out from under the pile

This place has got a hold on me, it's got a hold on
This place has got a hold on me, it's got a hold on
Ooh

The desert will remind you who you oughta be
It'll show you who you are
There's nothing to protect you what you're hiding
And I remember when she found my mark

This place has got a hold on me, it's got a hold on
This place has got a hold on me, it's got a hold on
Ooh, ooh

Now I walk along the wash out behind your place
Lie down there in the sand
And all that doesn't matter, it drifts away
And the wonder, it takes my hand

She's the bright hot sun in the cold night
She's the cold black darkness in the starlight
There are those that I held on to, then let go

But this one's got a hold on me, she's got a hold on
This one's got a hold on me, she's got a hold on

Early mornin', westbound on the empty 10
California's still fast asleep
Dawn is in my mirror once again
The light begins to weep
