Generally, I loved the verses and the story. I thought the lyrics and melody connected well in the verses. If it was my song, I would work on the dynamics as I was waiting for the song to "kick-in" and it didn't. I like the concept alot and think a strong chorus built around "New Year's Day" would take it to a different level. In the current state, I don't really remember the hook. While I remember the story, I don't really feel there is a memorable hook that pulls me back to the song. With all that said, it is a great story song and do like the concept and delivery of the verses......Love the subtle keyboard sound in the background. Very tasteful. Reminds me of one I programmed years ago. Hope this helps and Happy New Year Greg! I always like your work. Keep at it. Roy

Lyrics

New Year's Day
© 2014 Greg Lambert

He arrived early Saturday
On a stormy night
By the light of a flashing neon sign
Amid the fireworks and pouring rain
New Year's Day

His dad was recovering, mostly stayed in bed
Momma found some part time work as a maid
Hopes were high as they dreamed about what lay ahead
New Year's Day
New Year's Day

Chorus
He was born on New Year's Day
In the back seat of a car
The nearest hospital was too far
Tears of joy and cries of pain in that old Chevrolet
New Year's Day
New Year's Day

Bridge

All the diamonds and all the gold
People stash away
Can't compare to what the future holds
On this New Year's Day

He arrived early Saturday
On a stormy night
Mom and Dad thanked God for their new life
So much joy and happiness in this tiny gift of faith
New Year's Day
