A       D/A       E/A       A
What we want is a brand new year
A         D/A       E/A    A
Open your heart and set us free
A       D/A       E/A       A
What we need is a brand new life
        A       D/A     E/A  A
We'll decide on our own destiny

[chorus]

D                                  
What we want is a brand new life
          Bm                   
For every brother and sister - husband and wife
        Bm
For the single and lonely living in fear
G                 Bm        Em
What we want is a brand new year

[verse]

G            
While this year is still young enough for laughter
Em
We must insist that no tears follow after
  C           
Resolve to be strong and right the wrong
  Bm                 C
Inflicted on you and me

What we want is a brand new life
For every brother and sister - husband, wife
For the single and lonely living in fear
What we want is a brand new year

You know there are changes waiting in the future
Some of them'll hurt yer, some of them'll suit yer
There's just one thing to be certain of
You control your own destiny

What we want is a brand new life
For every brothers and sisters - husband and wife
For the single and lonely living in fear
What we want is a brand new year

[bridge]

Eb                        
What we want is a new conception
  Dm
A child to lead us out of here
Eb
Free from mistrust with no deception
Dm      C         A         E
What we want is a brand new year

          A
While the midnight bells are rung
       F#m
We are waking from a peaceful dream
      D        
Where children go to school and play the fool
  A      D         E    F#m
Deciding their own destiny

[interlude]
||:F/C   C   |G/C   C :||C  G/B  |Am  G  F#|F#    |    |

E
While this year's still young
              B
You've got to show us that our kids are totally free
           A
They wanna go to school, wanna play the fool
             E       A         B    C#m 
They gotta decide on their own destiny
             E                   A         B    C#m 
They have to guide the course of their own destiny
                E               A              B    C#
They gotta have pride enough to know their own destiny, yeah

C#        F#/C#      G#/C#    C#
Open your hearts and set them free

What we want is a brand new life
         C#      F#/C#   G#/C# C#
And to decide on our own destiny

What do we want
What do we need
What do we want right now
What do we need right here
We want a brand new life now
We need a brand new year

What we want is a brand new year
Open your hearts and set them free
What we need is a brand new life
And to decide on our own destiny
What we want is a brand new year
Open your hearts and set them free
