ABBA : Happy New Year (album [Super Trouper] 1980)

CAMERA OBSCURA : Happy New Year (1er album [Biggest Bluest Hi-Fi] 2001, produit je crois par Stuart Murdoch de Belle & Sebastian, reissue Merge Records)


No more champagne and the fireworks are through
Here we are, Me & You
Feeling lost & feeling blue

It’s the end of the party,
and the morning seems so grey
So unlike yesterday
Now’s the time for us to say

Happy New Year
May we all have a vision now and then
of a world where every neighbour is a friend

Happy New Year
May we all have our hopes,
our will to try
If we don’t,
we might as well lay down and die,

You & I
Sometimes I see

How the brave new World arrives,
and I see how it thrives
in the ashes of our lives

Oh yes, man is a fool
and he thinks he’ll be OK
dragging on feet of clay

Never knowing he’s astray
Keeps on going anyway
Seems to me nowthat the dreams we had before
are all dead

Nothing more than confetti on the floor
It’s the end of a decade (=’70)
In another ten years time
Who can say what we’ll find
what lies waiting donw the line
in the end of eighty-nine

Happy new year…
