all the girls are drunk
maybe so am I
here beneath the old expressway
I watch them walk on by
all the harbour's humming
gonna light the crackers soon
I just wanna kiss you
beneath the new year moon

[Chorus:]
all the junkie kids are tired
every single taxi's hired
say I'm moving slow
that you wanna go
but I don't wanna leave
there's no need to feel so bad
growing up can make you sad
you won't be ignored
all on board
tonight is new year's eve

mom and dad are in the backyard
with Gladys Knight and her pips
my little brother's in his bedroom
with nicotine on his fingertips
my big brother's downtown
scaring girls and fighting surfies
said I'd meet him in the donut kebab stand
next to Colin Murphy

[Chorus]

I can hear the westies blow their horns
desert boots dragging off the dunes
downtown's got its own sound
whistling through these rooms
and the streets are full of action
the burning signs are hanging high
I just gotta get some traction
let the light shoot through my eyes

all the punks are lighting fires
drinking long necks in the park
some girls swimming in the fountain
singing Buzzcocks in the dark
your sister always says she's lonely
I stole a new year's kiss from her
and there's a last train left the station
every red light was a blur

[Chorus]

now all the junkie kids are high
the train driver's getting tired
moon is hanging low
rays are rocking slow
shut your eyes and breathe
I don't know why you're feeling sad
it's the best time that i ever had
let me hold you tight,
let me hold you tight,
tonight is new year's eve
