A new start, a new beginning…
A time for peace, a time for forgiving

Open the door, let go and be free
The weight will be lifted, it’s time to believe

Shed all of the old burdening feelings
Of anger and pain, begin to start healing

Life is short, a mere fleeting moment
Rejoice and enjoy, the bliss of atonement

Holding a grudge, casting blame
Will only bring heartache, will only bring shame.

Open your heart, open your arms
Step into the sunlight, away from the storm.

Farewell to the bludgeoning, cruelty and crazies
A New Year begins, a chance to show mercy.

To those who deserve it, to those who may not
Give all that you can, and all that you’ve got

Banish the demons, shed the black clouds
Open your heart, remove the dark shroud

The New Year is here, a new day beginning
It’s a time for peace, a time for forgiving.
