Brand New Day
oleh: Sting



How many of you people out thereBeen hurt in some kind of love affair?And how many times did you swear That you'd never love again?How many lonely, sleepless nights?How many lies, how many fights?And why would you want to Put yourself through all of that again?
"Love is pain," I hear you say Love has a cruel and bitter way ofPaying you back for all the faith you ever had in your brainHow could it be that what you need the most Can leave you feeling just like a ghost?You never want to feel so sad and lost again
One day you could be looking Through an old book in rainy weather You see a picture of her smiling at youWhen you were still together Or you could be walking down the street And who should you chance to meet But that same old smile you've been thinking of all day?
Why don't we turn the clock to zero, honeyI'll sell the stock, we'll spend all the money We're starting up a brand new day Turn the clock all the way backI wonder if she'll take me back I'm thinking in a brand new way
Turn the clock to zero, sisterYou'll never know how much I missed her I'm starting up a brand new day Turn the clock to zero, bossThe river's wide, we'll swim across Weíre starting up a brand new day
It could happen to you,Just like it happened to me,There's simply no immunity There's no guarantee.I say love's such a force if you find yourself in it You need some time for reflectionYou say, baby wait a minute, wait a minute Wait a minute, wait a minute Wait a minute, wait a minute
Turn the clock to zero, honey I'll sell the stock, we'll spend all the money We're starting up a brand new day Turn the clock to zero, Mac I'm begging her to take me back I'm thinking in a brand new way
Turn the clock to zero, bossThe river's wide, we'll swim across We're starting up a brand new day Turn the clock to zero buddy Don't wanna be no fuddy duddy Started up a brand new day
I'm the rhythm in your tune I'm the sun and you're the moon I'm the bat and you're the cave You're the beach and I'm the wave Iím the plow and youíre the landYou're the glove and I'm the handI'm the train and you're the station I'm a flagpole to your nation - yeah
Stand up all you lovers in the world Stand up and be counted every boy and every girl Stand up all you lovers in the world Starting up a brand new day
I'm the present to your futureYou're the wound and I'm the sutureYou're the magnet to my poleI'm the devil in your soulYou're the pupil I'm the teacherYou're the church and I'm the preacherYou're the flower I'm the rainYou're the tunnel I'm the train
