Xmas songs no. 27: Further Seems Forever – “New Year’s Project”

The Moon Is DownI’m going to finish out the month with a string of songs about New Year’s Eve/Day. This one comes from Further Seems Forever’s debut album, The Moon Is Down (2001). Singer Chris Carrabba left after that album to start Dashboard Confessional, and the band went through two more singers on their two subsequent records, then broke up in ’06. 2012 brought about a reunion of the original lineup and a new album, Penny Black, which I reviewed last year.

Your hands didn’t move, well neither did mine
New Year’s will bring so much to say, but nothing comes out right
Both of us left without words
Both of us lost in this world
It’s softer than ever before

And you were the outline of everything you would become
The keeper of these hands to hold you now
It is a far cry more than anything that I deserve

I’m waiting to give you whatever the world may bring
I’d give you my life ’cause I don’t own anything
It seemed like the bottom was all that I had until now
I’d give you my life if you’d give me yours somehow.

Your hands didn’t move, well neither did mine
New Year’s will bring me to you

I’m waiting to give you whatever the world may bring
I’d give you my life ’cause I don’t own anything
It seemed like the bottle was all that I had until now
I’d give you my life if you’d give me yours somehow
