The autumn breeze awakes the leaves and throws them to the wind.
From far away, a distant train moans, "Fare-thee-well, my friend."
I hold my cup and raise it up and drink to your good health,
And deep within, I feel again the purest form of wealth.

CHORUS:
Good friends, good times, and good music forever fill our lives.
No matter where the story ends, the journey never dies.
It's more than just the freedom of the wind against the sea.
It's the sheer joy of living that binds you and me.

As sure as I'm alive today and I stand upon this earth,
I thank God for the love of you, immeasurable in worth.
It's enough to know you're happy, even with the miles between.
The friends we've known, the songs we've sung, have kept alive our dream.

CHORUS:
Good friends, good times, and good music forever fill our lives.
No matter where the story ends, the journey never dies.
It's more than just the freedom of the wind against the sea.
It's the sheer joy of living that binds you and me.

How often have I sent a kiss across miles of open space,
Felt in return your knowing eyes, and the joy in your embrace.
The only way I touch you is within a memory.
A guiding light from yesternight keeps you safe and warm with me.

CHORUS:
Good friends, good times, and good music forever fill our lives.
No matter where the story ends, the journey never dies.
It's more than just the freedom of the wind against the sea.
It's the sheer joy of living that binds you and me.
It's the sheer joy of living that binds you and me.

May this healthy, happy new year find your thoughts all warm and bright,
Live joyously this moment and each day for you will feel just right.
May this healthy, happy new year bring contentment all year long.
As your heart is filled with laughter, let your life be blessed with friends and song.

May the morning bring you wisdom, the night hold no regret,
May you always know the peace of mind that all your needs are met.
May the sun bring warmth and beauty, and on days when there is rain,
May challenges roll off of you like droplets down a window pane.

May this healthy, happy new year lead you to insight day by day,
And your lips sing out with gladness of all the good things to come your way.

Live as if there’s no tomorrow, loving everything you do,
Each moment as a birthday gift, a treasure just for you …
May you find your work fulfilling, fueled by diligence and drive.
A blessing of prosperity and thankfulness to be alive.

May this healthy, happy, new year allow ambitions to unfurl,
With the knowledge that your vision and all that you do has changed the world.
May this healthy, happy, new year inspire you deeply from within,
That you feel the truest Oneness and Spirit of Love you’ve always been.
