They say that the world's ending
In the twelfth month of this year.
But why bother believing
And drown yourself in fear.

You have 366 days
To do all sorts of things,
Like travel to places
And soar like you have wings.

It's another year, another chance
To let go of the past,
And wake up smiling, waving
To build ties that last.

They say it's out with the old
And in with the new.
So now, look at the mirror,
And embrace a happier you.
