Start It All Over Again
« on: June 07, 2016, 10:06:09 PM »

Lyrics and music by Karine Polwart, sung here by Heidi Talbot. FYI, Polwart was a social worker in Scotland who often worked with abused kids.

This song is about a mother's love for her child...something I never felt.  But of course the longing never leaves, does it? The maybes can make one's steps falter, or perhaps we can choose to find our own ways to "start it all over again."

I知 the sea that surrounds you
the garden that grounds you
the sun and the wind and the rain
I am every season
you池e every reason
to start it all over again

Soon you値l sail a wild river
we値l set sail together
and oceans will call out your name
and by stars you will follow
your hopes for tomorrow
and start it all over again

And if you stagger or stumble
if dreams start to crumble
I値l pick up the pieces of pain
I will cradle you cry with you
pray that you値l try to just
start it all over again

Who has eyes that can see
all the things you could be?
who has ears for the sweetest refrain?
may your heart sing forever
where the sea meets the river
and start it all over again
