Edge, what do you think? (U2 fans may recognise that from NYD 31-12-89)

New Year's Day
Written by Bono Vox (Paul Hewson), performed by U2 (Lead vocals: Bono Vox, Electric guitar, keyboard, backing vocals: The Edge (Dave Evans), Bass guitar: Adam Clayton, Drums: Larry Mullen Junior)


Yeah

All is quiet on New Year's Day
A world in white gets under way
I want to be with you, be with you night and day
Nothing changes on New Year's Day
On New Year's Day

I will be with you again (oh)
(oh) I will be with you again (oh)

Under a blood-red sky
A crowd has gathered in black and white
Arms entwined, the chosen few
The newspaper says, says, say it’s true, it’s true
And we can break through
Though torn in two
We can be one

I, I will begin again (oh)
(oh) I, I will begin again (oh)

Yeah-oh, oh-ah-oh

Mmmm

Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Oh oh, oh oh, oh oh
Oh, and maybe the time is right
Oh, maybe tonight

(oh) I will be with you again (oh)
(oh) I will be with you again (oh)

So we’re told this is the golden age
And gold is the reason for the wars we wage
Though I want to be with you, be with you night and day
Nothing changes on New Years Day
(Oh) On New Years Day
(Oh) On New Years Day

(Note I quite literally tried to transcribe every single vocal sound, though I think I missed a couple)

(Also, a sorry to all the people on my friends list who've had to read this both on here and the U2 community)
