Begin Again


I wish I could bottle up this feeling
Send it down the river
I wish I had the words to say
I’d come up with something clever
I wish I could move and go unnoticed
Not so plain to see
Like a picture out of focus
Though it’s right in front of me


How do I face another day when I can’t take it?
How do I turn another page when I’m faking?
How do I package up the pain when I can’t shake it?
It’s over now
How do I begin again?


I haven’t always been this bitter
I haven’t always loved the rain
I used to sit and watch the sunset ‘til it rose up again
People passing by me now
I’m lost out in the crowd
I’m not asking for a second back
I just want a way out


How do I face another day when I can’t take it?
How do I turn another page when I’m faking?
How do I package up the pain when I can’t shake it?
It’s over now
How do I begin again?


It’s been a hard fought battle
Don’t want to quit while I’m behind
Pouring salt in all my open wounds
I’m cut back down to size


How do I face another day when I can’t take it?
How do I turn another page when I’m faking?
How do I package up the pain when I can’t shake it?
It’s over now
How do I begin again?
How do I never fall apart when I’m breaking?
How do I catch a falling star when I’m through chasing?
Somebody point me to the start
In case it’s not over now
How do I begin again?
