17 New Year's Song Lyrics That'll Start Your 2018 Insta Captions Off Right

This time of the year, it's all about the parties and holidays that seem to be right after the other. The gift-giving holidays like Christmas and Hanukkah have definitely taken up all of your time, but just a few days after the festive hype has cleared away, it's time to ring in the New Year! It's a day to have fun while dancing the night (and year) away. And among your thoughts on what glittery dress to wear or who you may (or may not) be kissing at midnight, you'll definitely need New Year's song lyrics for captions, because what describes your mood better than a song?

I live my life through music -- whether it's listening to a certain song to hype myself up when I'm excited, flowing my sadness through a tune when I'm not, or just when I need a favorite to blast in the car -- lyrics are a great way to express yourself. They also make amazing Instagram captions. We all have our favorite artists, and often know their songs by heart and don't need help adding them to our feeds. However, if you're looking for a perfect lyric to really express New Year's for you, or about starting new and fresh in 2018, we've got your back.
