Tag Archives: Starting Over Again

And now we’re starting over again…

Pardon the background noise.  And the lack of auto-tune/ing…and the un-perfect recording quality….

“One shouldn’t make excuses.” is the rule but I can’t help myself.  I’m recording at home on a Sunday.  Oh, that possible pick-up of yelling laughter in the background?  That’ll be the kids playing in the next room.

This song though.  This song can’t wait another day.

I was with my dear friend, Justin, yesterday afternoon. I told him, “Suggest songs naman, kapatid!” I want melodies that will bring back the most special of memories when I sing them at the upcoming shows. So right there, mid-cut&color, we came up with this one.

As soon as I heard the first words, the very first verse, that “hagod” that only Natalie Cole can pull and I am but a humble cover-maker here, I knew this was special. EXTRA-special because of the words.

verse 1

and when i hold you in my arms i promise you

you’reb   gonna feel the love that’s beautiful and new

this time i’ll love you even better

than i ever did before and you’ll be in my heart

forevermore..

verse 2

we were just too young to know we fell

inlove and let it go

so easy to say the words goodbye

so hard to let the feelings die

i know how much i need you now

the time is turning back somehow

as soon as our hearts and souls unite

i know for sure we’ll get the feelings right

chorus

and now we’re starting over again

it’s not the easiest thing to do

i’m feeling inside again

‘coz everytime i look at you

i know we’re starting over again

this time we’ll leave all the pain away

welcome home my lover and friend

‘coz we are starting over over again

verse 3

if we never leave alone

then we might have never known

all the time we spent apart

all we did was break each other’s heart

ohh..hooh..

and when i hold you in my arms i promise you

you’ll gonna feel the love that’s beautiful and new

this time i’ll love you even better

than i ever did before

and you’ll be in my heart forever more…

chorus 2

and now we’re starting over again

it’s not the easiest thing to do

i’m feeling inside again

‘coz everytime i look at you

i know we’re starting over again

this time we’ll leave all the pain away

welcome home my lover and friend

‘coz we are starting over over again

this time we’ll chase all the rain away

welcome home my lover and friend

‘coz we are starting over over again…

we are starting over over again..
