So now we're taking end-of-the-year bows,

and end-of-the-year vows

-But I'm not ready, just give me one more go-round

(I don't want to listen for that final sound)

'Cause yesterday was the beginning

so I'm still winning (not won)

And I don't want to watch what happens after we leave,

so I'll just continue to disbelieve (this isn't the end)

No, this isn't history,

I'm still working out the mystery-

So please, just give me one more go-round,

I'm not ready to hear that final sound.
