I know this isn’t quite a new year song but I love the longing he has in this song. It’s perfect when you think that we are given a full empty year each December 31st. It’s my hope that I make this year even better than the last.

I realized that I really need to share the lyrics. This is truly a beautiful song and because it’s a Muppets song, it’s easy to overlook the wonderful words.

This looks familiar, vaguely familiar,
Almost unreal, yet, it’s too soon to feel yet.
Close to my soul, and yet so far away.
I’m going to go back there someday.

Sun rises, night falls, sometimes the sky calls.
Is that a song there, and do I belong there?
I’ve never been there, but I know the way.
I’m going to go back there someday.

Come and go with me, it’s more fun to share,
We’ll both be completely at home in midair.
We’re flyin’, not walkin’, on featherless wings.
We can hold onto love like invisible strings.

There’s not a word yet for old friends who’ve just met.
Part heaven, part space, or have I found my place?
You can just visit, but I plan to stay.
I’m going to go back there someday.
I’m going to go back there someday.
