Brand New Day . . . Sting







Turn the clock to zero, honey

I'll sell the stock,

We'll spend all the money

We're starting up a brand new day

lyrics from the song

Brand New Day (Murlyn Extended Mix)
Sting









How many of you people out there

Been hurt in some kind of love affair

And how many times do you swear

that you'll never love again?





Yeah, never say never . . . especially to saying that you'll never love again . . . then you feel the words of the song . . . "I'm the rhythm in your tune, I'm the sun and you're the moon" . . . and you think OMG love is pain, is bitter and cruel, the devil in your soul . . . but on the other hand you see that "I'm the glove, you're the hand" that fits together so perfectly and you turn the clock to zero and start a brand new day despite the fact that you vowed to never feel that way again.

You have no choice over when it will hit you . . . sometimes it hits you harder than other times. It could come out of nowhere, it could build with time . . . it is such a force that when you find yourself in it you can't decide if you have been blessed or cursed. Turn the clock to zero and start a brand new day. Why not . . . you never know if this time is the right time. Fate and destiny has a way of grabbing you when you least expect it.

This is a very cool version of one of my favorite happy, optimistic songs by Sting, Brand New Day. It describes precisely how I'm feeling in this very pleasant phase I'm going through. No matter how many times I'm knocked down, faith picks me up and I find that crazy smile again.


The mentality of being in love with love . . .
the curse of the hopeless romantic.


What is wrong with turning the clock
to zero and starting up a brand new day?


NOTHING!

Lyrics


How many of you people out there


Been hurt in some kind of love affair


And how many times do you swear that you'll never love again?


How many lonely, sleepless nights


How many lies, how many fights


And why would you want to put yourself through all that again?


"Love is pain," I hear you say


Love has a cruel and bitter way


Of paying you back for all the faith you ever had in your brain


How could it be that what you need the most


Can leave you feeling just like a ghost?


You never want to feel so sad and lost again


One day you could be looking


Through an old book in rainy weather


You see a picture of her smiling at you


When you were still together


You could be walking down the street


And who should you chance to meet


But that same old smile that you've been thinking of all day


You can turn the clock to zero, honey


I'll sell the stock, we'll spend all the money


We're starting up a brand new day


Turn the clock all the way back


I wonder if she'll take me back


I'm thinking in a brand new way


Turn the clock to zero, sister


You'll never know how much I missed her


Starting up a brand new day


Turn the clock to zero, boss


The river's wide, we'll swim across


Started up a brand new day


It could happen to you - just like it happened to me


There's simply no immunity - there's no guarantee


I say love's such a force - if you find yourself in it


And sometimes no reflection is there


Baby wait a minute, wait a minute


Wait a minute, wait a minute


Wait a minute, wait a minute


Turn the clock to zero, honey


I'll sell the stock, we'll spend all the money


We're starting up a brand new day


Turn the clock to zero, Mac


I'm begging her to take me back


I'm thinking in a brand new way


Turn the clock to zero, boss


The river's wide, we'll swim across


Started up a brand new day


Turn the clock to zero buddy


Don't wanna be no fuddy duddy


Started up a brand new day


I'm the rhythm in your tune


I'm the sun and you're the moon


I'm a bat and you're the cave


You're the beach and I'm the wave


I’m the plow and you’re the land


You're the glove and I'm the hand


I'm the train and you're the station


I'm a flagpole to your nation - yeah


Stand up all you lovers in the world


Stand up and be counted every boy and every girl


Stand up all you lovers in the world


Starting up a brand new day


I'm the present to your future


You're the wound and I’m the suture


You're the magnet to my pole


I'm the devil in your soul


You're the pupil I'm the teacher


You're the church and I'm the preacher


You're the flower I'm the rain


You're the tunnel I'm the train


Stand up all you lovers in the world


Stand up and be counted every boy and every girl


Stand up all you lovers in the world


Starting up a brand new day


You're the crop to my rotation


You're the sum of my equation


I'm the answer to your question


If you follow my suggestion


We can turn this ship around


We'll go up instead of down


You're the pan and I'm the handle


You're the flame and I'm the candle


Stand up all you lovers in the world


Stand up and be counted every boy and every girl


Stand up all you lovers in the world


We're starting up a brand new day
