New Beginnings

This song’s title is so beautiful and so true.  At any time in our lives we can just wake up one morning and say “you know what, I’m NOT going to take this anymore, I deserve more, deserve respect, real love, time for new beginnings”.  This post is emotionally linked with my Adult vs Children post but stands for all kinds of situations, countries and people.  Take hope and courage mix it in with self respect and the outcome is beautiful new beginnings.  A song for all of time… New Beginnings by Tracy Chapman.

The whole world’s broke and it ain’t worth fixing
It’s time to start all over, make a new beginning
There’s too much pain, too much suffering
Let’s resolve to start all over make a new beginning

Now don’t get me wrong – I love life and living
But when you wake up and look around at everything that’s going down –
All wrong
You see we need to change it now, this world with too few happy endings
We can resolve to start all over make a new beginning

Start all over
Start all over
Start all over
Start all over

The world is broken into fragments and pieces
That once were joined together in a unified whole
But now too many stand alone – There’s too much separation
We can resolve to come together in the new beginning

Start all over
Start all over
Start all over
Start all over

We can break the cycle – We can break the chain
We can start all over – In the new beginning
We can learn, we can teach
We can share the myths the dream the prayer
The notion that we can do better
Change our lives and paths
Create a new world and

Start all over
Start all over
Start all over
Start all over

The whole world’s broke and it ain’t worth fixing
It’s time to start all over, make a new beginning
There’s too much fighting, too little understanding
It’s time to stop and start all over
Make a new beginning

Start all over
Start all over
Start all over
Start all over

We need to make new symbols
Make new signs
Make a new language
With these we’ll define the world

And start all over
Start all over
Start all over
Start all over …
