I was born with a foot in the grave
I gave it all just to learn what it was for
In love I saw just a little of the point
But I tried too hard and I had a great fall

Then I got happy and I opened my ears
It worked for years til I got lucky again
And then a friend, through the smoke and the tears
She let me hear the voice of God

And so I tried to be easy with the all
But I went too far and believed that I was right
And so I start, start again all the time
try and realign with what I was meant to be

Breathe in and start again
All things end but the unending
We're all pretending to forget
that time leaves nothing standing
I can't keep waiting for a secret
that will make this easy
It's up to me alone
to realign my own mind daily
It's not like kindness takes a specialist
to recognize it
This isn't anything
but showing up with open eyes
And maybe being wise and being right
don't take the same plan of attack
There's only one thing we can do
so why take any chance on that

Start again, start again
