about

"When you fall down, you can't just lie there. You have to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again."

I don't remember exactly the origin of this statement, but I remember hearing my mom say it when I was a kid. And it is a very good piece of advice. I don't know about you, but I can certainly speak for myself when I say that I mess up a LOT! When I do mess up, it only makes things worse when I just sit there and feel sorry for myself. In my experience, the best way to deal with a mistake is by facing it head on. Own up to it, ask for forgiveness if necessary, and then try again.

This song was actually the first song specifically written for this album, but it was the last one finished. Ironically, the reason that it took so long to finish this song was because I kept trying different ideas that didn't work, and I had to TRY AGAIN over and over until I found the right musical setting for the song.

A true case of "life imitating art".

lyrics

Do you think you can forgive me,
or have I gone too far this time?
Can I find it in myself to start again?
Is there anything that can stand in my way?

CHORUS: No! This is not the end!
Knock me down, I’ll get back up
and I’m gonna try again!
I will not give up! No, I won’t give!
You can try to hold me down
but I’m gonna try again!

I messed up and I don’t know what went wrong.
I don’t even know if I can forgive myself.
I’m gonna need some help getting back in step.
Is there anything that can hold me back?

CHORUS

BRIDGE: Can you find it in your heart to forgive me?
Can you and I make things right?
I wanna let you know, I’m doing what I can.
We can work this out together.

You can’t stop me, I keep
going on and on and on and on!
I may be down, but I’m never out and I’m never gone!
I won’t stop until nothing’s left and all is done!
I won’t quit until I’ve won!

CHORUS 2x
