lyrics

The New Year’s band were playing
There were streamers in the air
You were sitting on the stairwell
With ribbons of blue, ribbons of blue in your hair

When we spoke your lips moved slowly
You led me to the floor
And danced like a cool wind blowing
As soft as the dress, as soft as the silk dress you wore

Then the lights came up so quickly
Everybody started to leave
I had left you for a moment
Not knowing you’d be swept away from me

Many nights in dreams I hold you
And lay you in my bed
But you were gone without a warning
So dreams are the only traces of you, traces of you I have left

Chorus

Every time the year turns over
And there are streamers in the air
I hear the band a-playin’
And I see traces of you, traces of you everywhere
Seeing traces of you, traces of you everywhere
