It’s just another New Year’s Eve…

Is it just me or what is it about New Year’s Eve that always seems to make me feel kind of emotional, sort of remorseful that another year has gone by – however good or bad it may be and without fail, each year, this song originally by Barry Manilow always comes to mind?

STP's good ol' days

The lyrics of the song go like this:
Don’t look so sad,
It’s not so bad you know.
It’s just another night, that’s all it is,
It’s not the first, it’s not the worst you know,
We’ve come through all the rest,
we’ll get through this.

We’ve made mistakes,
but we’ve made good friends too.
Remember all the nights we spent with them?

Mel and friend at SP

And all our plans,
who says they can’t come true?
Tonight’s another chance to start again.

We’re not alone,
we’ve got the world, you know.
And it won’t let us down,
just wait and see.
And we’ll grow old,
but think how wise we’ll grow.
There’s more, you know –
it’s only New Year’s Eve.

STP with mrs and Stella, Pollie and hubby and Teresa

It’s just another New Year’s Eve,
another night like all the rest.
It’s just another New Year’s Eve,
let’s make it the best.
It’s just another New Year’s Eve,
it’s just another Auld Lang Syne,
but when we’re through,
this New Year, you’ll see, will be just fine.

A Happy New Year, everyone from STP, Mrs STP and Melissa…and may God bless all of us in the days ahead in 2009.
