About New Year

Following a difficult few years where it seemed impossible to write anything but melancholy songs, Kar set herself a New Year's Resolution to 'write some happier songs'. She started writing the song on the 1st Jan 2015. A hopeful alt-pop song also marking Kar's joyful rediscovery of her electric guitar, the song is the first to be released from the Protagonist EP. It is released on the same day as the single In Sickness which is taken from the What Remains EP.

lyrics

Lyrics

We're going out, we're going out
Oh we never go out anymore
We're dressing up, we're dressing up
Oh we never dress up anymore

But tonight, tonight,
you know we feel more alive

What the future holds, I don't know
And how the year unfolds, I don't know
So I will hold you close, for a moment
Tonight we live in hope,
There's a purpose to all of this

I'm cleaning out, I'm cleaning out
Cleaning out the clutter
I'm clearing out, I’m clearing out
Clearing out the old year

Cos tonight tonight
You know I feel more alive

And what the future holds, I don't know
And how the year unfolds, I don't know
So I will hold you close, for a moment
Tonight we live in hope,
There's a purpose to all of this

He knows, he knows how it goes

We're going out, we’re going out
Oh, we never go out anymore

He knows, he knows how it goes
