A New Favorite Song

Overjoyed (by Christine Kane)

The midnight sky all stars and black

Like darkened glass and glitter

Suggests that I go back inside

And wait for warmer weather

So here it's New Year's Eve again

And everything keeps changing

I raise my glass and toast the Gods

In charge of rearranging


All of the world is designed to remind you

All of the light you could find is inside

Under all of the noise

What's it like to be overjoyed


In spite of day-time planners higher standards

Dreams defended

There's not a single thing that's turned out

Quite like I intended

And so you learn that holding on

Is nothing less than panic

When big things fall apart

Then hearts get that much more gigantic


All of the world is designed to remind you

All of the light you could find is inside

Under all of the noise

Are you scared to be overjoyed

It used to be a race to see

Just who'd get there the fastest

But this frozen night it's only right

To consecrate the madness

All of the world is designed to remind you

All of the light you could find is inside

Under all of the noise

Here's your chance to be overjoyed
