Lyrics
Never before has a year brought me so much joy and pain
And laughter and shame
Never before has a year been so cruel yet so kind
So enlightened, so blind

But I’m not complaining
No, I’m just refraining on what has come to be
It’s just a shame that I have to depart
With such a bittersweet taste in me

Never before has the time swept by so quickly
Yet drug on so slowly
I’ll try to explain it next
