Eddie Money - Brand New Day Lyrics

I don't need to write a book
'Bout the chances that I took
All the hearts I had to break
I had to live with my mistakes
All the ghosts that haunt my past
All the dreams that didn't last
Burning candles at both ends, no way to pretend
Watching bad luck take away all my friends

As a boy I never cried
Till the day my mama died
After that I, I left my home
San Francisco all alone
With Eddie, Bill and Dave all gone
Thought I'd put 'em in my song
And maybe to you, well, it don't mean a thing
It's about my life that I wanna sing

Hey, hey
I'm feeling okay
Hey, hey
It's a brand new day, you know
I'm taking it slow
I've gotta say, listen now
Hey, hey
I'm feeling alright
I'm feeling alright tonight

My memories, they linger on
Some are vague, and some are strong
Some are happy, some are sad
Some are good, and some were bad
Days that can move you and bring you to tears
Minutes then hours and days turn to years
I've turned the page, I've had kids of my own
The time that I cherish being at home

Hey, hey
I'm feeling okay
Hey, hey
It's a brand new day, you know
I'm taking it slow
I've gotta say, listen now
Hey, hey
I'm feeling alright
I'm feeling alright tonight
I'm feeling okay, yeah
It's a brand new day

Brand new day
It's alright now, yeah
Gonna be a beautiful night
A beautiful, beautiful night

So many cities, airports and hotels
They'll knock you out, count to 10, ring the bell
It's a God-given gift I can sing, I can write
Man I've been doing this all of my life

Hey, hey
I'm feeling okay
Hey, hey
It's a brand new day, you know
I'm taking it slow, so slow
Now listen here
Hey, hey
I'm feeling alright
I'm feeling alright tonight
I'm feeling okay, yeah
It's a brand new day
Brand new day

  19. Phil Gasson

    Now just one ticket, one way.

  20. Howard Sternlistener

    Thank you for working right till the end

  21. Duff Gordon

    his most moving piece- along with "friends" he writes , because "Hey Hey thank God I =can sing and I can write" Thank you for those bassett hound eyes, your "signature white boy moves- everything you did was because you trusted your God given instincts"-Maybe in the end it was your IDEAS that was your genius- "Hwy goes, let''s see if Ronnie Spector would be intrested... Hey N+Mr Graham - I have an idea , let's have the hoses ready , so when my faithfiul are burning up in the heat- when I say "give me some water"... WE FLOOD THEM, and you created out of nothing one of the biggest moments in rock history!! Too many to mention. Oh you were SO SMART!!!! That was your charm- You may have been a cop, but as I think about it you could not do that job- Can you imagine a spousal issue eddies called to as a cop?? He would have them sit down..."Marriiage is hard.. This is what me and my wife do......." Do you want to see her photo"??? hahahahahahahahahhahah

  22. pammyla66

    R.I.P Eddie you made my teenage years wonderful with your music

    Janice Perkins

    Cheril I’m anxiously waiting too for the cd. Was originally set for release in July 2019 but I cannot find it anywhere. Don’t know why his family wouldn’t want it released now. Would be a wonderful way to memorialize him

    Always liked to get out to see him living in Bellflower So Cal area, they’d play Hollywood Amphitheater, Ring Cross Square And other places, Eddie was cool 😎 We even had some drinks one night after his show, lots of drinks lmao 😆 Eddie paid and set them up like no one I’ve ever seen, Money was no problem when having a good time was going down. He even shut his girl friend down to stay an hang with us. Rest In Peace brother

  75. Timothy Blackburn

    RIParadise. Eddie.

  76. Cheril

    I absolutely love this song. First time hearing it. Took about 15 seconds to fall in love with it. Feel so sad for his family. He will be missed and always remembered.

  77. Peter Locke

    Dam eddie still can write a great tune, respect dude, R.I.P.

  78. Korena

    At age 54, and having to STILL deal with so much heartache in my life(2 grown sons-one, 27, sadly is very mentally ill & the other, 36, turned quite evil about 7 yrs ago-and failed spine surgery 6 yrs ago that all but stole my physical vitality & still youthful spirit, top THAT list)...AFTER my love life FINALLY became PERFECT at age 35, I SO OFTEN say, "I Wanna Go Back" and do it all over! I would CERTAINLY make some VERY SERIOUS changes to insure a better future for myself (hindsight...blah-blah...20/20). THEN, tho I have all of Eddie's old records on VINYL (which I collect-but have to get the most recent 2 on ANY media available! Didn't know about either album for listening mostly to my own huge collection!)...I go watch Eddie's music video for 'I Wanna Go Back'...which leads to watching EVERY video he ever released as a single once videos started-then watch lots of concert footage-older & more recent. Before I know it, HOURS have passed...and I had been, for just a little while, living in that beautiful, carefree past of mostly the 80s...GREAT times, GREATER music...and Eddie Money was ALWAYS one of my VERY favorites & MOST BELOVED of singers/songwriters! And, wow, didn't hurt that he was a sexy-as-hell looker in those days! I have to say that I met some damn fine, super friendly police officers when visiting New York City a few years ago but I'm EVER so VERY THRILLED that Eddie decided to FOLLOW HIS DREAM & pursue MUSIC instead! He certainly left us with TIMELESS, BEAUTIFUL TREASURES in which he will ALWAYS live on! 😇 So incredibly sad to hear of his passing! 😪 So eerie that I heard of his passing while I was enjoying one of only 2 places on Earth that make me feel YOUNG, VIBRANT, CAREFREE, & TRULY, COMPLETELY HAPPY anymore...at a CONCERT or at the BEACH. This time was my last full day at the beach-a trip I TRY to take yearly with my now 73-yr-old mother-missed last year due to a hurricane & nearly again this year for the same-because I love the beach AFTER Labor Day, AFTER the crowds are gone but risk not being able to go as hurricanes are more prevalent that time of year. We found out at the VERY LAST MINUTE that the trip was ON! It was THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BEACH TRIP we've EVER had! The hurricane left NO effect on North Myrtle or its warm & mild waters! And a full moon was waxing all week enabling us to SEE EVERYTHING EVERY night on the beach! So beautiful! I took my mom INTO the ocean (past her ankles, past the breaking surf) for the FIRST time in her life at age 71 in 2017(that very calm area of water that felt so good on her deteriorated spine), tho she had gone to the beach with my siblings several other times before then(and once with me in 2015 on the heels of a hurricane that left the water bitterly cold & so terribly ROUGH & CHOPPY that I didn't even belong past the break myself that year but went anyway!) I also took her to her FIRST CONCERT in 2018, at age 72, to see Cher...who is the SAME age! I've known of & loved Cher since age 3 because Mom did! I've taken her to several concerts since(and going to see Cher AGAIN in December!). We would have DEFINITELY seen Eddie Money had he toured the Baltimore, Washington D.C. or Northern Virginia area any time in the past year or in the future! I sent Mom his 80s videos & SHE also fell in love with his music! So VERY saddened I never got to see him live! Since retiring youngISH, due to my failed surgery, I vowed to see ALL of my favorites whenever & as often as I can!(w/o social media when younger, I had no way of knowing WHO was touring WHEN/WHERE, and either didn't have $ for tix and/or gas, a reliable enough car to drive 2 - 3 hours to venues, enough time to take off from work, babysitters for kids, etc) So, VERY sadly, I missed: the BeeGees before all but Barry were gone, Tom Petty & Prince! And now, dear Eddie Money! Only TWO of my favorites, Daughtry & Shawn Mendes, have been in their PRIME when I saw them in concert. (With the exception of seeing Matchbox Twenty in 1999-close enough to home that I saw ads for their concert in our local newspaper!) But seeing artists I've loved most of my life, or at least since my early 20s which were my 'party days' when I went out mostly for the MUSIC & DANCING, NOT the alcohol, I'm having the TIMES OF MY LIFE!!!Cher-who apparently never ages, Three Dog Night, Fleetwood Mac-March 2019, Stevie Nicks-solo tour 2016, Lindsey Buckingham-solo tour 2018, Poison, Cheap Trick-with Poison in 2018 & on their own when I went SOLO with a Meet & Greet ticket earlier this year!, Kiss' 'End of the Road World Tour' for my FIRST & LAST time last month! (They STILL put on THE MOST ROCKING OF ALL ROCK CONCERTS, PERIOD! I watch a LOT of concerts on YouTube to know THAT!). Hopefully, going to see Rick Springfield & REO Speedwagon VERY soon! For a few hours, the MUSIC is ALL THAT MATTERS! Time doesn't merely stand still...it REWINDS! It takes me back to simpler, happier, carefree times. Eddie Money played a HUGE role in making the 80s VERY SPECIAL for me! I LOVED his MUSIC! I LOVED his lyrics! I LOVED Eddie Money! He was absolutely ALWAYS one of the VERY BEST! I hope & pray he finally used one of those Tickets to Paradise & that we will hear him sing live again one day...😇🙏💖💞💜🎼🎵🎶🎷🎷🎷🎶🎶🎵🎵
