By: A Great Big World

Episode: Naked
This Is the New Year by A Great Big World is featured in Naked, the twelfth episode of Season Four. It is sung by the New Directions. 

The New Directions are excited about the coming year after creating the 'Men of McKinley Calendar'. Before the song begins, Becky hugs the calendar as Artie and Sam speak about the coming year. As the song begins, New Directions are in a studio, inspired by A Great Big World's music video of the same song. They dance and sing together as it switches to different characters singing. Brittany can be seen carrying Lord Tubbington in one shot. The scene then cuts to the New Directions entering the auditorium, running and singing the song in their own crazy way.

At the end of the song, everyone falls to the floor except Artie and Sam, who seem excited and high five each other. This is the final song of the episode.

Lyrics

Blaine (with New Directions):
Another year you made a promise
Another chance to turn it all around
And do not save this for tomorrow
Embrace the past and you can live for now

(And I will give the world to you)

Marley (and Jake):
Speak (louder than the words before you)
And give (them meaning no one else has found)

Artie (and Sam):
The role we (play is so important)

Ryder and Unique:
We are the voices of the underground

Marley:
And I (Brittany: I)
Would give the world to you

Brittany:
Say everything you've always wanted

Sam:
Be not afraid of who you really are

Jake and Marley:
Cause in the end we have each other
And that's at least one thing worth living for

Jake with New Directions:
And I (Brittany: I)
Would give the world to you

Artie with Brittany and New Directions:
A million suns that shine upon me
A million eyes you are the brightest blue
Let's tear the walls down that divide us
And build a statue strong enough for two

Jake (and Ryder):
I pass it back to you
(And I will wait for you)

Blaine and Sam:
'Cause I would give the world (New Directions: I would give the world)

Blaine, Marley and Sam:
And I would give the world (New Directions: I would give the world)

Blaine, Marley, Sam, and Tina with New Directions:
And I would give the world to you!

Marley (and Unique):
Yeah, yeah (Yeah, yeah)

New Directions:
I would give the world to you! (Unique: Oh, oh, oh, whoa)

Unique with New Directions:
This is the new year! (New Directions: Yeah!)

Blaine with Marley and New Directions (Unique):
This is the new year
A new beginning
You made a promise (You made a promise!)
You are the brightest
We are the voices (We are!) (Artie: Oh)

Blaine, Marley and Unique and New Directions:
This is the new year
We are the voices
This is the new year (Artie: Oooo)
A new beginning
You made a promise
We are the voices
This is the new year!
