I had fun writing this one! Thanks Bunny for setting up this challenge. CMA

New Year’s Eve
_______________Verse/Chorus

Verse 1:
New Year’s Eve, laughing eyes, faces sparkling, no distress
Tonight uncloaks a cavalcade of mem’ries from the years
The dance, the cheer, the easy smiles paint a carefree air
But drops of time stain her heart with tattoos of tears

Chorus:
She dons the hat and glasses, displays her rainbow soul
And floods her heart with happiness, disregards control
But never mind the holes and patches or what she misperceives
She’ll party till tomorrow, this is New Year’s Eve

Verse 2:
New Year’s Eve, silent sighs, well dressed darlings, no despair
Unwind the clock till it unlocks what’s hidden in her heart
As bliss and pain, the cries of both cascade down her dress
And drops of life twinkle through like a work of art

Chorus:
She dons the hat and glasses, displays her rainbow soul
And floods her heart with happiness, disregards control
But never mind the holes and patches or what she misperceives
She’ll party till tomorrow, this is New Year’s Eve

Bridge:
The night unfolds to a crescendo of a brand new year
To flush away mistakes and sins, surge forward without fear
But all the flaws and shadows do not conform to time
And she’ll awake in the morn with worry on her mind... but

Chorus:
She dons the hat and glasses, displays her rainbow soul
And floods her heart with happiness, disregards control
But never mind the holes and patches or what she misperceives
She’ll party till tomorrow, this is New Year’s Eve

Post Chorus:
Cast aside veils of sorrow, this is New Year’s Eve
Don’t think about tomorrow, this is New Year’s Eve

Thanks Alan and Bunny, The hardest part was the first line which I changed numerous times. The rest came easily. Another fun one!
