Asa – New Year (Song Of The Day)

Very few songs remind you of the right way to start a New Year, Asa’s New Year does just that. Before going any further, I will like to state on record that Asa’s Beautiful Imperfection is one of the most perfect, most beautiful and most brilliant music album in the history of Nigerian Music. If you think otherwise, I will be very glad to know why and which supersedes it.

An astounding feature of this song is the fact that it deviates from the typical Nigerian New Year song that is only about prayers to God for a prosperous New Year. This song reminds you of your own role in ensuring you have a successful year.

It is a known fact that the average Nigerian is very religious. We take pride in our spirituality and would throw in a phrase about God into any available space in the middle of any and every conversation. This has pushed a lot of us into willful ignoring of obvious facts, laziness, and unnecessary resignation to fate rather than hard work.

We will proudly stay in toxic relationship, without putting in an effort to get our partner to commit to changing. We will stay in a job that shows neither sign of advancement nor sense of value from its proprietors. We just keep doing things that rationally would keep us unhappy, depressed and frustrated, yet expect to be hearty, upbeat and healthy.

It is time we take the reins of our life back. It is time we start to face the unknown rather than accepting that which is known to be woeful. It is time to make this year a truly New Year.

New Year Lyrics:

Verse 1:
No amount of rule books in the world
Can ever know
to teach you how to be yourself
Instead you are just someone else
No amount of talking or just friendly intervention
Can teach you when to up and go
Can tell you when it’s overload
When you just can’t see the future
When you just can’t see the light
You always got to put on a fight

Hook:
Don’t be crazy, it won’t break ye
You have to know when it’s over
it’s over
Alleluia, it’s a new year

Verse 2:
Total understanding
Took awhile but now I’m learning
I don’t need no yesterdays
And I don’t need your humble praise
Shed another skin and I feel so better within
I think I’m finally breaking through
Cos everything it feels brand new
I can finally see the future
I can finally see the light
And you always have to put up a fight

Hook:
Don’t be crazy,
It won’t break ye
You have to know when it’s over
it’s over
Alleluia it’s a new year
You have to know when its over it’s over
Alleluia it’s a new year

Hook:
Don’t be crazy,
it won’t break ye
you have to know when it’s over
it’s over
Alleluia it’s a new year
You gat to know when its over it’s over
Alleluia it’s a new year
