This is normally the day to think back on the year behind and make promises for the year to come. I have my list of resolutions in my head. I know what improvements and changes I need to make. However, I’m not going to bore you with all that here.

Instead I want to share a song that I think is the perfect toast for New Year’s Eve. Unlike that crusty tearjerker Auld Lang Sein which insists we look back, this is a song that best sums up all the hopes anyone has when looking forward to new beginnings.

At a time when people tend to get all sorts of corny and cheesy, The Kinks put it best, “I hope tomorrow you’ll find better things.” None of the watery-eyed empty sentiments that people feel they are supposed to say. Just a simple, heartfelt wish that tomorrow will be better than today. It’s a thought that works any time of the year.

Here’s wishing you the bluest sky,
And hoping something better comes tomorrow.
Hoping all the verses rhyme,
And the very best of choruses to
Follow all the doubt and sadness.
I know that better things are on the way.

Here’s hoping all the days ahead
Won’t be as bitter as the ones behind you.
Be an optimist instead,
And somehow happiness will find you.
Forget what happened yesterday,
I know that better things are on the way.

It’s really good to see you rocking out
And having fun,
Living like you just begun.
Accept your life and what it brings.
I hope tomorrow you’ll find better things.
I know tomorrow you’ll find better things.

Here’s wishing you the bluest sky,
And hoping something better comes tomorrow.
Hoping all the verses rhyme,
And the very best of choruses to
Follow all the drudge and sadness.
I know that better things are on the way.

I know you’ve got a lot of good things happening up ahead.
The past is gone it’s all been said.
So here’s to what the future brings,
I know tomorrow you’ll find better things.
I know tomorrow you’ll find better things.

Happy New Year Y’all!
