​Brand New Year

This song is by The Bottle Rockets and appears on the album Bottle Rockets (1993) and on the album Brand New Year (1999).

Brand new year, same ol' trouble
Stroke of midnight didn't change a thing
She'll still be the pin that goes and bursts my bubble
And writes these sad songs I sing

You know I hate New Year's Eve
Another year I can't believe
Another pounding in my head
Another woman in my bed
I don't know this ones name
I'm glad she's here just the same
Now and then I need some help to keep my mind off someone else
Brand new year, same ol' trouble
Stroke of midnight didn't change a thing
She'll still be the pin that goes and bursts my bubble
Writes these sad songs I sing

Tonight I wish I'd just stayed home
Could've stayed there and drank alone
Could've stayed there and had a ball
Waiting round on her call
Could've made believe I was still her man
Instead of being where I am
But here I am and here I go
High again and feeling low

Brand new year, same ol' trouble
Stroke of midnight didn't change a thing
She'll still be the pin that goes and bursts my bubble
And writes these sad songs I sing
