I see my own reflection in the window
I hear the people carry'n on below
I know the one I love is out there somewhere
To me that somewhere's not far to go

Ev'ry year I make my resolution
To find my love and make her all my own
But it looks like she decided not to show again
And I'll be singing 'Auld Lang Syne' alone

People grow accustomed to their lifestyles
It's easier to settle in your ways
I wish that I had someone to get used to
To settle down until my dying days

Nothin' new for new year for me
Nothin' new for new year for me
All I wanted was an angel that I don't expect to see
Nothin' new for new year for me

It don't mean nothing if you're crying all the time
And there's no one there to see your tears
And it don't mean nothing if you're passing up your prime
And I been passing mine for years

And so, to my reflection in the window
I'll raise my glass and make a toast to you
I've never known a man to be heartbroken
My someone that he never even knew

Nothin' new for new year for me
Nothin' new for new year for me
All I wanted was an angel that I don't expect to see
Nothin' new for new year for me
