05. Start Again

Innocence & Instinct (Deluxe Edition)
by Red


And I remember everything, everything I loved
I gave it away like it wasn't enough
All the words I said and all You forgive
How could I hurt You again?
What if I let You win?
What if I make it right?
What if I give it up?
What if I want to try?
What if You take a chance?
What if I learn to love?
What if, what if we start again?

On this time I can make it right
With one more try
Can we start again?
In my eyes You can see it now
Can we start again?
Can we start again?

The emptiness inside me I wonder if You see
It's my mistake and it's hurting me
I know where we've been
How'd we get so far?
What if, what if we start again?

I'm lost inside the pain I feel without You
I can't stop holding on
I need You with me
I'm caught inside the pain
Can we ever start again?
I'm lost without You

One more try
Can we start again?
In my eyes can You forgive me now?
Can we start again? Can we start again?
One more try
Can we start again? Can we start again?
Can You forgive me now?
Can we start again?

Words & Music by Jasen Rauch, Rob Graves and Jason McArthur

Behind the Song:
This piano-driven anthem “Start Again” finds its roots in the personal struggle of a friend, described as very close to the band, who suffered through a divorce that tore him apart. “We’ve all felt the sting of regret; we’ve all wished we could wipe the slate clean sometimes,” says songwriter-guitarist Jasen Rauch. “We wanted this song to be a biographical appeal looking back on everything that happened and asking for ‘one more try,’ one more chance to start over again.” The song re-imagines arguments with lines like “What if I let you win?” and reconsiders the effort with “What if I want to try?” then offers unreserved honesty with “I can't stop holding on… I’m lost without you.” Rauch continues, “It’s really just about feeling genuinely sorry for past mistakes, and about hoping there might still be a chance to put the pieces back together.”
