New Year’s Resolution is another song that I wrote a while ago and now decided to put online – beware, there are a couple more of them. I wrote the first version in early 2003 and now arranged it with more electric guitars and a „twist of Keane“-piano in the background. I think it makes an interesting combination and that the sound – while obviously only a demo – supports the rather dark lyrics well. As usual, you can get the VST based, home-produced demo as mp3 (128kbit, enclosed). Words, music and vocals by Tobias Schwarz, 2003-2005.

Lyrics –

New Year’s Resolution (you’re ugly inside), Tobias Schwarz © 2003-2005

(Verse 1)
My new year’s resolution
Cut you out of my brain
This is no more symbiosis
Feels like cattle being slain

Your attitude is hideous
I cannot stand you no more
All your thoughts insidious
You’re a weapon made of whore

And I can’t find her anymore
The charming girl I knew before
What did you to her?

(Chorus)
You may look good
But you’re ugly inside
You broke my heart
And took my pride
Your beauty won’t last
And without a doubt
Love’s gonna get even
You’ll soon find out
You’ll soon find out

(Verse 2)
Got me drunk on magic potion
Drowned in your sparkling eyes
Thought your love could soothe my pain
But your heart is cold as ice

My new year’s resolution
No longer play your game
I won’t be the guy left standing
In the rain shouting your name

And I can’t find her anymore
The charming girl I knew before
What did you to her?

(Chorus)
You may look good
But you’re ugly inside
You broke my heart
And took my pride
Your beauty won’t last
And without a doubt
Life’s/Love’s gonna get even
You’ll soon find out
You’ll soon find out

(Primary Bridge)
No I won’t stumble
I won’t fall
I have to end it
I’ll stand tall
Breaking up will be my joy
Weapon unloaded end of ploy

(Chorus)
You may look good
But you’re ugly inside
You broke my heart
And took my pride
Your beauty won’t last
And without a doubt
Life’s/Love’s gonna get even
You’ll soon find out
You’ll soon find out

You may look good
But you’re ugly inside
But you’re ugly inside
You’re ugly inside
You’re ugly inside
You’re ugly inside
